Book Reading List #3

Quote of the day: 
My personal hobbies are reading, listening to music, and silence. -Edith Sitwell 

It appears that my challenge of reading at least 5 books a month is still on course. As I present to you most of my book reading list for the month of April. The idea is to spend as much spare time that I have reading as much as I can, out of a handful of titles, and it has worked out quite well so far in that I've managed to read at least 5 books each month since I began this challenge at the start of the year.

I also like the fact that sometimes I pick books without reading the back covers, and just jump straight into reading. As with most cinema trailers that give away far too much of the plot, the same can apply to a book, and I try not to read reviews about the book until the very last page is turned. I must add that I do not do this for every book.

Moving on, here is my reading list as seen above:

Kazuo Ishiguru -Never Let Me Go
Haruki Murakami -A Wild Sheep Chase
Eilis Ni Dhuibhne -The Dancers Dancing
Paulo Coelho- Brida

What books are you reading or planning to read during the coming month? Do share.
Have a wonderful week!

Current Listen: John Newman -Losing Sleep


  1. Nice! You are really cruising. I have been reading a lot lately too but sticking to non-fiction for a switch. Enjoy. :)

  2. My reading list for this next month includes these Canada Reads selections:

    Minister Without Portfolio by Michael Winter,

    Bone and Bread by Saleema Narwaz,

    Birdie by Tracey Lindberg,

    The Hero's Walk by Anita Rau Badami,

    The Illegal by Lawrence Hill.

  3. Next month I'll include the following: 'Voices in the Gallery' by Dannie & Joan Abse, 'Moving House' by Ingrid Wendt. Frederic Morton's 'Thunder at Twilight' (concluding pages).

  4. I am about to start a re-read of The Samurai's Garden by Gail Tsukiyama. I loved it a few years ago, and wanted to re-vist. Do you ever re-read?

  5. Really interesting post...thx for sharing! xx

  6. Reading belongs to the most important things in my life!
    Greetings from Bavaria/Germany, Rena

  7. I applaud you. I could never get in 5 books in a month and still work. I'm green with envy.

  8. Wonderful that you are reading 5 books a month since the beginning of the year. Congratulations!
    I am not reading anything at the moment...but having said that, I just picked-up a book at Goodwill that looked interesting. It's titled...Blizzard by Phil Strong. It is a novel...© 1955.

    Have a nice day~


    1. Sorry...that should be Strong...

  9. I'm reading Drums of Autumn by Diana Gabaldon, book number 4 in the Outlander series. Will also be reading another Louise Penny book.

  10. Here is a must read for you: "A Man Called Ove" by Fredrick Backman. It's excellent. I just finished his second book but it wasn't as good. I've read 17 books so far this year so that's more than 5 per month.

  11. As I can see my boyfriend only on weekends, we spend an average of 1 1/2 hours on the phone avery night - time I'd spend reading if circumstances were different. Therefore, I am a rather slow reader these days, with most of my reading being done on the short train rides to and from work.
    There is no list I follow; I just read what's next on the pile on my shelf, or comes next when clicking through my kindle's contents.

  12. Great list you have got boss. Have a blessed Wednesday.


  13. Nice list. Hoe do i subscribe to get you new posts in my mail??

  14. Well done with your reading - you are doing well.

    I do like the quote you've used today.
    Enjoy the rest of the week

    All the best Jan

  15. I don't read as much as I'd like. Currently, I'm reading some stories by Paolo Choelo. I might do like you, just read without looking at the jackets or refiews.

  16. Wow, what a great challenge! Reading 5 books per month must be incredibly enriching and mind-openning. I also really liked the idea of reading a book without the 'spoilers' of the back cover, I should do that next time I read a bok for a change. :)


  17. I'm still reading Trigonometry for Dummies and a cook book called Ovenly. That is, when I'm not teaching myself french for my upcoming trip to France!

    I do love silence almost as much as I love music. I try to be aware of silence. Sometimes I will lie in bed, after talking to God, and just before sleeping, I will be as still as I can, to be aware of complete silence.

    You have the best blog posts!
