Reading Down My TBR Pile – Bonus @Readathon Edition

Last updated 7:48 pm

I knew I was going to be late starting because I spent the morning at a ceramics workshop and I wasn’t home until slightly after the readathon started.  But I was later than planned.  Making time to read is what’s important though

A Day In The Life of Ivan Denisovich by Alexander Solzhenitsyn paperback, 143 pages on TBR since 20 March 2013 (according to Amazon)

This is one of the 1001 books you must read before you die and I can see why this is the case.  I felt like I learned something reading this book with it’s hard hitting subject matter.  A worthy read but not a difficult one.

Oh Whistle And I’ll Come To You, My Lad by M.R. James audiobook, 50 minutes (44 pages approx in print) on TBR for a couple of years

This isn’t a book that I’d have chosen but it was given away free to all Audible members one Christmas several years ago. And I can’t resist a freebie.  I’d been putting off listening to it because I’d heard it was a ghost story but it was creepy but not scary so it wasn’t a problem.  I loved M.R James’ turn of phrase in this, especially right at the beginning.  I’m glad to have this ticked off my TBR but it’s not something I’ll revisit and I doubt I’ll read more by the author.
