|No more piles of books for me|
Well, September was a very trying month. My reading certainly reflects my scattered state of mind. I only completed 6 books, which is well below the 14 I read in August and the 11 I managed in July. I think that I’ll be reading less for awhile. I realized that the majority of my reading time had been during my 45 minute one way subway commute. Now that I’m not living in good ol’ NYC, I actually have to drive to work. I’m currently trying an audiobook, but I only listen to that when I’m alone in the car. I’m having trouble getting into it, though. It’s only the second audiobook I’ve ever listened to. I don’t know if audiobooks just aren’t for me, if they’re an aquired taste, or if I simply haven’t found the right book.
I am happy to report that I was very pleased with the quality of my September reads. I had three 4-star reviews, two 5-star reviews, and one 3-star. I also read the best book of the year (so far) – A Happy Man by Hansjörg Schertenleib. Go find a copy.
