It's hard to believe that it's already August. July seemed to fly past in a whirlwind (my work was crazy busy) and though I did complete everything on July's reading list (well I'm still slogging through Ulysses) and a few other books, I felt like I didn't get as much reading done as I would have liked.
But it's a new month, and here is what is on this month's reading list:
For reading groups: The Housekeeper and the Professor by Yoko Ogawa
The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain
In the Heart of the Sea: The Tragedy of the Whaleship Essex by Nathaniel Philbrick
For the little reader's readalong: The Book of Negroes by Lawrence Hill (I'm also counting this one towards the Canadian Book Challenge 4)
Mid-month I'm heading up to visit my family in Winnipeg and celebrate my birthday with Michael Buble (well, I'll be at his concert anyway) and since it's a 14-hour drive each way I suspect I will pick up a couple of audiobooks to keep me and the hubster entertained on the journey. He is not a reader, but he says he will be interested in listening to books, so I have to search out some that we can both enjoy.
