Hosted by Kathryn from Book Date, “It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?” is a weekly event to share what we’ve read in the past week and what we hope to read, plus whatever else comes to mind. Here is what I read the week ending 24 December 2018. To learn more about each book, click on the book cover!
FINISHED SINCE THE LAST UPDATE:
DID NOT FINISH:
I’m reading Jane’s Fame by Claire Harman, and it’s such a nice nonfiction read. Very often my nonfiction ends up being super academic, which is great in its own way, but then when I go and read a trade nonfiction book I’m always like “wow this is a really pleasant method of knowledge acquisition.” :p
LOL! I know what you mean. I do love academic nonfiction, but when you shift to more mainstream nonfiction, it feels like you are cheating or at least reading a fiction novel.
YES! Ladder to the Sky was so good…one of my favorites of 2018!
I loved it! His writing amazes me!
