I've been taking books out from the library all summer. Last night I dropped by because two more had come in, and this is what I came home with:
Selected Poems - Sharon Olds
I Sit Listening to the Wind - Judith Duerk
In the Dark Before Dawn: New Selected Poems - Thomas Merton
Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking - Susan Cain (finally! over a year to get this!)
I already had out:
After the Golden Age - Carrie Vaughn
Faerie Tales ed Martin Greenberg and Russell Davis
Signs in the Blood - Vicki Lane
Love Letters - Katie Fforde
The Grimm Legacy - Polly Shulman
One Year to a Writing Life - Susan Tiberghien
The Cats of Tanglewood Forest - Charles de Lint
Alif the Unseen - G. Willow Wilson
Summertime Death- Mons Kallentoft
Fairest Wide Awake: new graphic novel from the creators of Fables
Pain, Parties, Work: Sylvia Plath in New York, Summer 1953 - Elizabeth Winder
Twice Upon a Time - Women Writers and the Story of the Fairy Tale - Elizabeth Wanning Harries
At the Mouth of the River of Bees - Kij Johnson
The Writer on Her Work - ed Janet Sternburg, Vol 1.
Just looking at the titles to write them down here is making me want to read them all!!! Just need to find the time.....which leads me to:
I am in a bit of a reading slump, mostly because I had to hand back the book on Sylvia Plath that I had out from the library and was really enjoying, Mad Girl's Love Song. Also some personal news is distracting me, and with stress with my new temporary position at work, all in all I'm struggling to settle into reading this month.
How about you? Are you reading much this summer? Do you use the library more in the summer or winter months?
