Bout of Books
The Remains of the Day - Kazuo Ishiguro
Love in the Time of Cholera - Gabriel García Márquez,Edith Grossman
The Wind-Up Bird Chronicles - Haruki Murakami

Bout of Books begins today and these are the three books I'm attempting to read/listen to/finish.

 

I started the audio version of The Remains of the Day earlier while I was getting ready to go out. It's something I've wanted to read for so long and I'm excited about.

 

I also started Love in the Time of Cholera last week, so I took a note of what page I started with today and will add it to my final tally.

 

Lastly, I've got The Wind-up Bird Chronicles, which I started on Saturday. I was originally thinking of picking short books for Bout of Books so I could get through as many as possible, but I then I thought, why not just keep a page count instead? Plus, The Remains of the Day is a short book and I've already read almost half of Love in the Time of Cholera, so I think I'll get through those two. It's just the Murakami that I think I might struggle with as it's 663 pages! I'll give it a try, anyway, and in the unlikely event that I finish all three books, I plan to start Hannah Kent's most recent book, The Good People.

 

The challenge today is to introduce myself in six words today, so here it is: I'm Holly, I'm Irish, I write.

I'm really rather surprised at Fermina. After 3-4 years that's it!? I'm starting to really enjoy this novel.

Really starting to enjoy this and looking forward to finding out how the love affair between our two protagonists began.

A man who committed suicide left a lengthy letter that we are yet to find out the contents of. I'm very intrigued already.

Friday Reads
Love in the Time of Cholera - Gabriel García Márquez,Edith Grossman
Full Catastrophe Living: Using the Wisdom of Your Body and Mind to Face Stress, Pain, and Illness - Jon Kabat-Zinn

I was alerted to Friday reads by Char and thought I'd join in.

 

Today I'm starting Love In The Time Of Cholera by Gabriel Garcia Marquez for my RL book club that meets in a few weeks. The book catalogue doesn't seem to have the other one I'm reading, Done by Jacques Peretti, a non-fiction book about the secret business deals being done that are shaping our world. I'm also listening to Full Catastrophe Living, which is a mindfulness book.  I've nearly finished it and it's been excellent.
