I did plenty of reading this month, trying to get my hour a day in. It often turned into a lot more than an hour though with all the post-dissertation free time. I’m still making my way through the Harry Potter series (I’d like to be done prior to the baby’s arrival) and through CathLit2019. I read a lot more nonfiction and had a nice return to some historical reading set in the Amazons.
One Beautiful Dream by Jennifer Fulwiler
Jesus of Nazareth by Benedict XVI
Writing Down the Bones by Natalie Goldberg
The Art of Frugal Hedonism by Annie Raser-Rowland and Adam Grubb
I thought this book was kind of underwhelming. You can read my review of it here.
Ten Arguments for Deleting Your Social Media Accounts Right Now by Jaron Lanier
I have a review of Lanier’s book to be published elsewhere hopefully soon. I’ll share a link to it is up, but for now all you need to know is I am not a cat person.
River of Doubt: Theodore Roosevelt’s Darkest Journey by Candace Millard
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire by J.K. Rowling
Goblet of Fire…the one where it all gets a little real, all too real.
The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey
Another re-read. There is a reason why Seven Habits is an absolute classic.
What did you read in April? Any big reads planned for May?
