Your Book Activity - June 2020

Recommended Posts

Whoa.. we're halfway through June and I didn't realise we needed a new June topic! Sorry!

 

What's your book activity in June?

 

I've been reading The Abyss Beyond Dreams by Peter F. Hamilton (book 1 in The Chronicle of the Fallers), since the 3rd week of May. I'm really enjoying it for the most part. I also started reading the 3rd Artemis Fowl book today (The Eternity Code in English, or in Dutch De eeuwige code, as I'm reading the translation).

 

I have also been busy this past week/while, packing some of my books into boxes to prepare for moving. We've taken most of the boxes to the new house, unloaded them, and took the empty boxes back again, so I keep re-using the same boxes. Anyway.. I've worked quite hard on that, so today I am taking a break from it.

Just finished two bird books in quick succession: Swifts and Swallows by Mike Unwin, and The Twelve Birds of Christmas by Stephen Moss (good time of year for the latter, but several of the birds are only here for the summer!). Both solidly good, informative, reads.  Both 4/6.

Gosh, it's quiet here, but then I've not exactly been very active!  Just finished The Hollow Crown, a fascinating history of the Wars of the Roses by Dan Jones.  Good, solid, narrative history. Certainly helped me sort out my understanding.  4/6 stars.

Yeah, it has been quiet here, that is true.

 

I'm not currently reading any book, but I plan to pick one to read in a while. A lot of my books are packed in boxes and a lot of them are already at the new house. I have some left here in my old house unpacked. So, a more limited selection to pick from. I'm taking a break from packing today but will be back at it soon.

I seem to have been reading a lot more lately.  Struggled to get stuck into anything too big, my usual penchant, but plenty of shorter material.  Unlike much of the rest of the UK, I'm still very much in lockdown mode, by choice.  Just finished one of my book group reads for this month: Fall Down Seven Times, Get Up Eight by Naoki Higashida.  Ranges from the massively insightful to the banal.  3/6, but some bits worth 5 or 6 stars, others 1 or 2.  Good book for a book group though!
