I Think I've Accepted That I'm Reading Much Slower These Days!

Hello everyone! I hope that you're all just fine this morning - I certainly am! :) Anyway, I just wanted to give you an update on how I'm doing so far.

I'm beginning to think that I am taking one step forward and two steps back as regards the pace of my reading. I only mean that I thought I was doing so well last month having read two books, then this month I've been stumped by what I wanted to read next. I have at least four books on my radar at the moment, but I can't seem to choose which one to read.

Granted three of the books are rereads for me, but I think the oldest one is from about twenty years ago. So, that's almost like reading an entirely new book. I'm just in the process of locating at least one of these four books. I'm immersing myself in sum-doku puzzles as well: I've done approximately 99 puzzles in one book and 34 in the other.

As regards my own reading, the most recent book that I've read was The Ladies of Covington Send Their Love: A Novel by Joan Mendlicott, which I finished on Monday, June 18th! I just recently stopped reading Tutankhamun: The Untold Story by Thomas Hoving and will probably pick it up again soon. I started reading Night in Jerusalem: A Novel by Gaelle Lehrer Kennedy on Saturday, July 15th.

According to Goodreads - as of Tuesday, July 18th - I've read 73 pages out of 246 or 30 percent of the story. Since my copy of Night in Jerusalem: A Novel by Gaelle Lehrer Kennedy actually has 236 pages in it, reading 73 pages means that I've read 31 percent of the story. So far, this book is really good!

Hello and welcome to my blog. I'm a newbie as far as book blogging goes, having been blogging at my daughter's blog for only about two and a half years. Now it's time for me to get my feet wet on my own. Please be gentle with this blogger. Love to hear from you all. Have a great day! :)
