What are we reading in December?
Join LibraryThing to post.
We're supposed to be getting worse weather later today and the first snow of the season, so I'm going to settle in and try to finish a re-read of A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman for my RL book club this week.
How is is December!
I will mostly be reading library books, as I have set myself the goal of ending the year with a much reduced number of library books on loan to me.
It would help if I stopped reserving them, really, wouldn't it?
>3 Helenliz: I had to start suspending my holds three weeks ago so that I wouldn't have quite as many books coming in -- I go to my parents' for Christmas and am pretty much always having to return a stack of books unread because I can't read them all before I go.
I am reading The Bake Shop by Amy Clipston for NetGalley. This is a novel about an Amish woman who owns (you got it!) a bakery.
>3 Helenliz: I'm hearing you! I find it easier to just reserve books as soon as I hear about them than trying to keep lists! But I also have SO many books piled up.
>4 rabbitprincess: I must start tracking them all as my library will be closed for two weeks. I need to get all the ones due back in that period returned. And time will fly between now and then.
Still on Great Expectations as I am reading it along with others. Just about to start No Exit for December ScaredyKIT - revisiting the modern thriller category.
Having to pick among five library books due back on the same day... going with Home Sweet Homicide, by Craig Rice, which was recently reprinted as an American Mystery Classic.
>9 rabbitprincess: - Our local library has started automatically renewing your book if there's nobody waiting for it and just sending an email with the new due date. SO convenient.
>13 rabbitprincess: - I've always only needed a couple more days, but I wonder how many times they would renew. Maybe I'll ask my sister today when I go pick up a book I reserved.
With medical appointments taking up most of my time my reading plans suffered a sharp setback. I'll just finish off the year with light reading for CalendarCAT, AlphaKIT and RandomCAT - by the letter - starting with Dead Cold by Louise Penny. This is a re-read because I didn't warm to Penny on my first read. I should have started at the beginning of the series.
And of course as usual I'm reading everybody's threads, though I may not be able to post comments.
