tassini's "The Books of August"
I try to draw up my monthly list in categories. For example, the first three for August are prize winners of one type or another. The next two (4&5) are classics. They’re followed by children’s books (sometimes including YA) numbers 6&7. Then come two non-fictions, often something I have to force myself to include (8&9) I try but am not always successful to read a book in German each month. August’s is Lippels Traum, #10. The next two (11&12) are notable recent fiction chosen from NYT, PW, Christian Scientist Monitor, Amazon bests etc. Of course there’s just for fun reading, not all yet chosen, but beginning with #13. And finally a disclaimer – list is subject to change since I typically rebel against to-do lists!
