Following on from my Recent Reads post I have realised that I don't read as much as I used to and when I do read a book it seems to take me an age to finish. What I was after was a reading equivalent to a Knit a Long (KAL)!
Last week I read Rachel's (of my life in knitwear) latest blog post about what she had been reading recently as part of her 'the year in books' series. The aim is to read at least one book a month and then share your thoughts the following month. It is organised by Laura from Circle of pine trees and unlike a book club you decide what to read. This is just the motivation I need to read more so I have decided to join in!
My book for September is Atonement by Ian McEwan.
I am about a quarter of the way through and I like how the chapters alter from one character to another and also hint at the future. Now I have NOT watched the film but I have a funny feeling someone told me the ending after I had purchased the book from a charity shop. I am trying desperately hard not to think about that and instead concentrate on the story.
So next month I will let you know how I get on with Atonement and tell you my October selection (hopefully a Man Booker Shortlist book if my library ever gets them in!).
If you enjoy a good book pop over to Laura's blog to see what others are reading. There are a few recommendations that have taken my fancy.
