JusJoJan 2015 ~ Day 11 ~ belated

Just Jot It January 2015

I wanted to jot about reading as Linda’s prompt for the first ten days suggested but somehow there was so much else to write about…. obviously I am jotting a little obsessively right now ;-).

Of course, I need to jot about reading. Am not sure if I can call myself an avid reader but certainly a passionate one. But as Shan wrote in one of her JusJoJan posts: I read in waves. There are times when I just can’t get into a book and then others when you won’t get me off one.

As it happened I did not manage to get my GoodReads goals read both for 2013 and 2014. That was a shock. The goals weren’t too bad: Around a book a week. Even a slow reader like me should have managed that! I didn’t. Never mind. That’s behind and in 2015 I am already one book ahead :-).

My actual main reading book is “Stardust” Neil Gaiman’s newest novel. It’s a fairy tale set in Victorian England and in Fairy and it is so magic and wonderful and funny and….. you get the gist. My “not-main” reading books are

  • The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx (another fellow-German-speaker in GB besides my favourite poet Erich Fried)
  • Fire and Ice by Dana Stabenow
  • You are a writer (So start acting like one) by Jeff Goins
  • English Grammar for Dummies by Steve Capelli
  • Septimity by Derek Haines
  • Siddhartha by Herman Hesse
  • Four Short Stories by Emile Zola (they are not short at all!!!!)
  • The Three Musketeers by Alexander Dumas
  • Was heisst sich am denken orientieren by Immanuel Kant

Oh, and I listen to War & Peace by Tolstoy on BBC Radio 4….

Why does it somehow feel that my reading list is too long?
