July 2018: What are you reading?
Join LibraryThing to post.
Happy July first! For those experiencing summer heat, stay cool. And for those undergoing longer nights and colder days, keep warm! Whatever your weather, what 1001-list books are you reading to escape from it?
Just wrapped up The Private Memoirs and Confessions of a Justified Sinner and I'm tackling The Last of the Mohicans next. Heard good things.
>5 japaul22: Thanks. Done with reading the front and back cover. So far, so good. :-)
I've just begun The General in his Labyrinth which I feel pretty certain I'm going to get a lot out of (not sure yet if "enjoy" is the right word). On audio I'm listening to Doctor Jekyll and Mister Hyde which is really excellent. Even though I think I know the plot twist here, the suspense is great. So, more good summer entertainment, so well initiated by Under the Net!
I am reading Mother's Milk and Troubles.
I also started The Man Without Qualities - this one will take me several months, reading a little at a time. I got the two volume paperback set and also the kindle version. I started reading the kindle version and it is the worst digital book I have ever seen! Typos everywhere, seriously. It is a difficult enough book without having to decipher so many errors. I hope the print version is better.
>9 BentleyMay: I bought the Kindle version as well. Thanks for the heads up! Ugh...
I bought the kindle version of the Picador Classic edition of the The Man Without Qualities for $3.70. In the description it says it is only 394 pages so I don't think it is the whole thing.
The typos are really bad! I've never read a kindle book with so many. I might try to exchange it for a different version. I also ordered a paperback version, but I ordered it from the Book Depository and they usually take about three weeks to get to me.
