o/t: leisure reading in August

I’ve gotten out of the habit of reading long books, which means they tend to accumulate unread on the shelves, so this month I decided to revisit the fabled Halls of Stonkerdom and tackle a couple of really long ones, plus another that was getting there in terms of wordcount. I’ll be doing a bit more of this catching up in the months to come.

Links are as usual to my Goodreads notes.

  1. I haven’t read many works from the Halls of Stonkerdom lately. I recently picked up a novel by David Niven and am enjoying it very much. (Did he have a ghostwriter? No matter. Still a terrific yarn.)

    Our book club is reading a Much-Heralded Book that has insufferable writing. I think if the author used words like “Stonkerdom”, it would be a much better read.

  2. Nice list. A couple on your list I am reading right now, including The Girl on the Train and The Goldfinch. Btw, do you know that there will be a movie based on The Goldfinch. Pretty exciting stuff.
