I had zero reading time this month. I only finished The Wise Man’s Fear because it was an audio book and Mr. J and I went on a long road trip to Florida this month.

And I have way too many that I’m still working on.

I decided to shelve Desperation by Stephen King, Necroscope by Brian Lumley, and The Charm School by Nelson DeMille because I don’t see myself finishing them any time soon and when I do pick them back up again I’ll start them over anyway because I’ve already forgotten everything I’ve read. With Necroscope I don’t feel too bad about doing that because I’ve read it before but I really liked DeMille’s book, I just don’t have the time to read it right now. I probably won’t finish Desperation. I liked the first few chapters but as it sometimes happens with Stephen King books, I lose interest as the plot progresses. The Long Road is one of the few books of his that completely captivated me. I only finished that one because I literally could not put it down. I read it in two days before we left Arkansas.

I’ve gotten some really good reading recommendations from a few friends of mine so my reading goal for next month is to cull the Still Working list so that I can start reading new books.
