Reading inbox-outbox: First four days of October

Well, we’re only four days in and October is already shaping up to be a pretty busy reading month. Dang.

Inbox (books acquired)

  • All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (Kindle, library) — I’ve had this on hold for so many months now and I was so far down the list, I kind of forgot about it and I guess I didn’t freeze my hold. So, of course my hold would come up at the worst possible moment, when I’ve already got three other books I was planning on reading this month. I’m going to start this and see if it catches my interest. If it does, I’ll find time for it.
  • Lagoon by Nnedi Okorafor (Kindle) — You may remember that I was thinking about buying this to read on my summer vacation. But I ended up sticking to reading books I already owned. Well, this week it went on sale for $1.99 and I finally bought it! I’m so excited to read this, but it must wait…

Outbox (books finished)

  • none…

Queue (what I’m reading next)

  • My buddy read of Count of Monte Cristo is on. The current plan is to read the first thirty chapters by next Sunday. So, I’ll be starting that this week…
  • But, on Tuesday the companion book to Rainbow Rowell’s novel Fangirl will be released. I’ve had this on pre-order since June. So, I’ll probably be dropping everything to bing read Carry On as soon as it hits my Kindle…
  • And, then there is the issue of my library book. I now have three weeks to finish All the Light We Cannot See….
  • And I just started My Brilliant Friend this week thinking I would be able to finish it quickly, but then I wasn’t feeling like reading this weekend…

So, it looks like I’ll be reading multiple books at the same time this month. Not something I normally do, but it should make things interesting. But fall is a great time for snuggling up with a good book and a warm beverage, right?

Happy reading!
