January 2010

My dear friend Kelly recounts the books she reads each month, and I, as I tend to do, have decided to follow her example. Thus, beginning with this first month of a new year, I present to you the books I have read:

  1. Morality Play by Barry Unsworth.
  2. Genesis by Bernard Beckett.
  3. The Little Prince by Antoine De Saint-Exupéry.
  4. The Cellist of Sarajevo by Steven Galloway.
  5. Odd and the Frost Giants by Neil Gaiman.
  6. Parnassus on Wheels by Christopher Morley.
  7. The Dispossessed by Ursula K. Le Guin.
  8. Neuromancer by William Gibson.
  9. The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner.
  10. Searoad: Chronicles of Klatsand by Ursula K. Le Guin.
  11. Mort by Terry Pratchett.
  12. Run by Ann Patchett.
  13. The Hound of the Baskervilles by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

I have read so many books this month only because it has been a month of leisure. The first six books were read whilst staying with Kelly; indeed, four of those books are from her library.

Tomorrow starts both a new month and a new semester as I return to work in the hallowed halls of 66. No doubt that we shall find that my list for next month will include a few medieval titles…
