The Reading Rainbow

Sep 10, 2007

Last week I took some much needed vacation. During that time I happened to pick up a book to read, something I haven't done in a long time (as sad as that is to say). My book of choice was Sherlock Holmes: The Complete Novels and Stories Vol. 1, which I received years and years ago from a family friend. I have never successfully read through all of the stories, though I have finished the odd one or two. My goal this time around is to complete the entire book. So far I have read through the two novel-length stories in the book: A Study in Scarlet and The Sign of Four. Both are gripping reads, and I found that I could hardly put the book down once I started reading. I'm very excited about the rest of the short stories. And then it's on to volume two!

What is everyone else here reading? Or are you even reading at all? It's certainly such a 20th century thing to do... ;-)

I'm currently working my way through the Narnia books for the first time. I just started The Horse And His Boy (which is the 5th book for me, not the 3rd, since I'm reading them correctly). It's taking a while because I tend to read in quick spurts, then I don't make time to read for weeks or months at a time. I've also taken breaks between books to read books from my favorite genre, techno-thrillers (Timeline by Micheal Crichton and Tyrannosaur Canyon by Douglas Preston being the two most recent).

The Chronicles of Narnia are so good! I found them incredibly hard to put down. The seventh book in the series is difficult to get into, but the ending is worth the effort.
