Reading Down My TBR Pile – Week Ten

I think I’m going to move these posts permanently to Monday. Friday’s are a free day for me so I’m often off doing stuff and can’t fit blogging in/forget.  Because my Monday’s have a routine it should be easier for me to fit blogging in each week.

Week 10 saw me still listening to the same audiobook which I still haven’t finished and read two books. I feel a bit like I’ve been in a slump this week but it probably doesn’t help that Thursday which I intended to spend a big chunk of reading I spent most of the afternoon in bed with a sicky headache.

The Tales of Beedle The Bard by JK Rowling hardback, 109 pages, read cover to cover in an hour or so, re-read.

I think this is the third time I’ve read The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I pulled it off my shelf a month or two ago intending to reread it and then never did.  It was a fun read and I enjoy it everytime I read it. I’d love to read more of these stories, possibly more than I’d love to read more Harry Potter by JK Rowling.

The Year of Reading Dangerously: How 50 Great Books and 2 not so great ones saved my life by Andy Miller – paperback, 322 pages, on TBR for a month, read in 5 days.

I hated this book. It’s the worst book I read in a long time. The reading wasn’t dangerous, it’s not clear how it saved his life and it was only 1 not so great book not 2. I basically only finished reading this because I was on the train and it was better than being there with nothing to read.  In the book Andy Miller says he didn’t like book blogging because he kept getting distracted from the enjoyment of the book to think about what to write. I don’t find that but I did stop reading and think about what the best description of this book would be and I’ve decided it’s pretentious drivel.
