Read in May 2015

That’s right. Once again, it is the end of another month and I’ve forgotten to post about the books I read in the previous month! Gah.

I hesitate, knowing that there’s so many books that I’ve not actually talked about, wondering why I don’t write about books more often.

Of course the answer is: life. Kids. Chores. Doing stuff with kids. And what is the best reason of all, reading books. And I have been reading and reading all the books, especially comics in May. Such good comics too!

Among my favourites in May were:

Love and Capes
Underwater Welder

I reread two books: The Hobbit and To Sir with Love

And read a classic children’s book that everyone else seems to have read: From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler

As for non-fiction, I even read a few, mostly food-related, but hey, there was non-fiction read in May!

  1. I’m reading From the Mixed-up Files of Mrs Basil E. Frankweiler with my kids. They are enjoying it, even though it’s a little dated (They keep asking, “Mom, how can things be that cheap?!”).

  2. It really does seem like blogging gets in the way of reading sometimes, doesn’t it??

    What did you think of Men Explain Things To Me? I’ve been thinking about picking it up.
