52 Books in 52 Weeks - July's Books


August already?! Much more than half the year has gone by and I am *still* struggling in terms of pace. I ended up giving up on Making Sense of the Troubles: A History of the Northern Ireland Conflict - I predicted that its 416 page length would be too much and so it has proved. Hopefully I will get back to it, but it will be the longest time between start and finish of them all, I think.

So, here are the books I managed to read in July:

  • Storm in a Teacup: The Physics of Everyday Life by Helen Czerski

  • Forest of Memory by Mary Robinette Kowal

An awful return of just 374 pages in a month - though half of Making Sense puts the total at 574.

I blame Netflix, which has me entranced currently with some great Vietnam documentaries. On top of that my tactical video game bug has been itched by Post Scriptum.

Still, in some good news, I only have 22 books to finish before I'm done with the challenge, and I'm already 8 books past where I gave up last year. Onwards and upwards!
