October's (sparse) Reading Stack
I am going on a strict diet this month.
Unfortunately, I am only adding one new book to my reading stack. I feel so deprived. My new book is On the Way Home, by Laura Ingalls Wilder, which is a reread after all.
For the rest of the month, I will focus on finishing Jude the Obscure, by Mr. Thomas Hardy. I have a confession: Hardy and I have a rocky relationship, but I cannot get enough of his style. Maybe someone can tell me who else to read since I am fond of his writing. Kind of like..."If you like Hardy...you'll love [fill-in-the-blank].
I plan to make bigger dents into David Hume's History of England and A Philosophy of Education, by Charlotte Mason. My kids and I are still reading Macbeth, by Shakespeare, and I started a new book, Jedediah Smith: No Ordinary Mountain Man, by Barton Barbour, with my son. It is a lot longer than I expected. Ugh. But I must finish it.
So if I want to introduce new reading to my diet next month, I must stay the course and finish most of these.
What new books have you started this October???
