FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
This is a re-read for me as part of the #AtlasRAL. I have to say that I am enjoying it even more via audio than I did in print. I’ve been listening while I exercise, so it is going to be slow-going. However, I love every minute of it.
Who knows? I’m playing it fast and loose these days, and I like it. I especially like pulling some oldies off the shelf.
So, what are you reading?
Atlas Shrugged is one of those books I’ve been hauling around forever but never actually read. My uncle gave it to me in high school and I’ve moved it with me to every apartment/house since. I gotta get on that eventually!
Oh, you do! I love this story. I may not agree with her philosophy, but I think the story itself is excellent. Also, don’t let the size fool you. It is a surprisingly quick read for such a hefty tome.
I love the cover of The Fold. Reading The Crypt Thief by Mark Pryor, set in Père Lachaise cemetery in Paris! Listening to The Cruelest Month by Louise Penny
Oooh, Louise Penny! So, so good! I am thoroughly enjoying The Fold. It actually gave me chills last night while reading it.
Have a great week!
I use my audio listens more for older titles,well sometimes..ha ha. I keep trying to get off the merry go round of new book reads, but then I get all hung up on the fact that they will expire …ugh. Happy reading.
I was stressing about reading books before their expiration date, but I just stopped. Granted, this is a recent phenomenon, but it feels refreshing. If I truly want to read it, I will find a way to fit it in before the expiration date. Also, it is one of the reasons why I request fewer and fewer books from Edelweiss. NetGalley at least grants you 55 days after you download it before it expires, and you can download it multiple times until the archive date. That little trick has gotten me out of many a jam. Edelweiss isn’t as forgiving.
Fast and loose reading is the way to go. You’ve mentioned wanting to take a step back from ARCs, and I’m glad you’re making it happen. 🙂
Last night, I dove headfirst into Pride and Prejudice for Room Beam Reader’s Austen in August event and I’m absolutely loving it so far. I don’t think it’ll take me more than a few days, and from there I’m fast and loose, just like you.
I haven’t read Pride and Prejudice in years. I would do a re-read but there are just too many other books to read. I do hope you enjoy it though. It’s a good one!
I love that you’re just reading whatever strikes your fancy. Enjoy – I hope whatever you pick up next is a winner!
Thanks, Brandie! So far, so good!
