Today I wanted to finish 2001: A Space Odyssey, the novelization of the movie that was written by Arthur C. Clarke. However, I left the book either at the library or in our car last night, which my wife had today while she was at work. So far, I’m about halfway through the book, which is only a couple of hundred pages and it’s pretty good, although not great. I’m not sure if I’ll continue to read the rest of the series, which my brother-in-law gave me with a pile of other books I have yet to read.
If it is in the car, I’ll look to finish it tonight or tomorrow and then plan on starting two other e-books I borrowed from the library: The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows and How I Killed Pluto and Why It Had It Coming by Mike Brown. I’m reading the first one for a book club that meets Tuesday night at From My Shelf Books. As for the second one, I found it while browsing e-books that our library had available for download and since I want to read more nonfiction books this year than I did last year (or the last few years for that matter), I thought this would be another good one.
I say “another good one,” because I finished Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand last week, which probably will be the best book I will read this year. I will do a review of it, although I think I might save it for my Midweek Review post on Wednesday. It’s too good to just dash off a review only to say I finished a review.
What is on your reading radar for tomorrow or for today, if you’re reading this post on Sunday where you are?
