Books To Read: August 2012

Books To Read: August 2012

I was only able to read a measly number of books last month: 2, and one of them was a reread. I will no longer make any excuse about failing to meet my July reading plan. Since last month’s plan was not met, I will just have to finish the unread books that I assigned for last month and pull out a few books from my shelf. But this month, I’m targeting six books, only because one of them is just a slim volume. The Swimming Pool Library by Alan Hollinghurst – from last month. The Virgin Suicides by Jeffrey Eugenides – from last month as well. I’ll be reading this along with some of my favorite book club friends, Maria and Monique. The Tin Drum by Gunter Grass – my Nobel pick for this month. Actually, this should be Mysteries by Knut Hamsun (another unfinished July book), but since I nominated The Tin Drum as the book of the month in our quiet Nobel group at Goodreads, I’ll just have to postpone Hamsun next …
