My Reading in February

Gosh another month has flown up! February being a short month is a nice excuse not to read much. But then I don’t need an excuse I have been reading a lot. I have been raiding the library and clinging to books as I try to escape reality. Books transport me to another world and don’t let me think much about reality. I made trips to the library every time I needed to get out of home and came back with more books than I intended.

My Read 2017 plans were fluid enough to let me deviate from them quite a bit. I seem to have learned towards classics quite a bit. I went back to books I have read before and a lot of childhood classics too. Falling back on trusty old favourites like Agatha Christie and Arthur Doyle was the kind of therapy I needed. I wasn’t ready to explore too many new authors this month.

The Most Disturbing Read

Little House on the Prairie. (I know it is a strange pick but I find the series very disturbing and sexist)

The Surprisingly Good Read

The Art of Stillness. (I don’t lean towards non-fiction much and hence the choice)

The Almost-Abandoned Read

Little House on the Prairie.

The “I will go back again” Read

And Then There were None.

The BFG

    Pondering about Art of Stillness… Would love to your review of that book. And what an impressive number of reread!!

    Hope reading has been the much-needed balm for you 😀

      Listen to the TED talk. The book is small but it is easier to listen than read. If you like the talk, borrow the book
