A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.
Read more, reviewed less this week. Unfortunately had to change direction on two challenges with an overlap book but I think I made a decent save (see Bloggy Things below).
Books Read This Week (2)
Atonement- Ian McEwan
Slaughterhouse-Five- Kurt Vonnegut (DNF)
Currently Reading (3)
A Prayer For Owen Meany- John Irving--a light, breezy read so far but will take time to finish; definitely reminiscent of its adapted movie Simon Birch (though the movie only used some of the book's material).
My Life- Bill Clinton--still chugging away at this 5 months from starting it!
Cloris: My Autobiography- Cloris Leachman--I thought this would be a fun diversion with its short, anecdotal chapters, ala Carol Burnett's This Time Together that I zipped through a couple of weeks ago; I'm hoping to finish & review this prior to the Irving book.
Next to Read
Wonder Boys by Michael Chabon--I'm itching to start this as I love the movie
Rabbit, Run by John Updike--for 1st in a Series challenge; also has been a book of interest for a long time
Other Reviews Written This Week
What's It All About?- Michael Caine
~ Added DNF (Did Not Finish, Don't Recommend) rating to my review system
~ Due to giving up on Slaughterhouse-Five, which was a challenge book for Back to the Classics and What's in a Name 4, I've subbed in Cujo by Stephen King for BTTCC (a banned book, overlapped with Stephen King Challenge), and Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury for WIAN4 (a book with a number).
~ Edited, reorganized & updated Lifetime Must-Read List.
