One and a half weeks of August left (I know!!) then we head into September...still quite warm and even hot in some places I know - but here we're getting a preview of fall already. Leaves scattered about on the ground, nights getting cooler, days getting shorter, the sun not quite as high as it was just a week ago...
This fall will probably not be very festive for me - everyone is back at school/work and there's nothing much to do with no one to do it with. And unless I nail down a job soon or the firm selects me for a project - I'll be staying in most of the time.
So I plan to read; There are a few new titles I'll be exploring as well as some older ones I really want to re-read from quite a time ago. What I read differs from season to season... Spring is usually something lighter/blissfully thoughtful, Summer is gossipy/trashy fun or biographies/poetry, Fall is crime, epic poetry, mystery, and erotica, Winter is tragedy, drama and abit of sci-fi.
We'll focus on autumn reading lists now though...
On my list is:
By Persons Unknown: The Strange death of Christine Demeter, 1977 by George Jonas/Barbara Amiel. A Canadian true crime book.
Psycho USA: Famous American Killers you've never heard of
Catherine the Great: Portrait of a Woman
The Robber Bride
Wilderness Tips - Short stories by Margaret Atwood
Darkness Moves: An Henri Michaux Anthology
Juilette by Marquise De Sade
Will probably last me through till new year's lol
What's on everyone else's lists?
Feudin' and fightin' and a-fussin,'
That's all that's goin' on with us'n!
We are such neighborly people, peaceful and sweet!
All except when we happen to meet.
