End of May Books

Still awaiting a sci-fi book haul (The Prefect, Zoe’s Tale, The Temporal Void, Anathem). With no school, I tend to devour books very quickly. I borrowed 4 books last week from my mom and finished them by Friday. I borrowed a book from a friend and it was finished by Sunday. I bought three hardcover books today and two are already finished. I’ve started reading the Gulag Archipelago. The well-used copy of my mother is older than I am.

    Hi Danyel. Most of these books were read in the bus or walking around. I rarely spend hours of my time reading books at home, though it does happen from time to time. But most of it is done going around town.

    I wonder how many books someone can read reading fulltime for a whole year. As you might have guessed, I’m keeping a list on the books that I’ve read to see how many I can read in a year. It’s not a race, it’s just keeping track of what I usually do.
