2017 Reading Plan (March Update)

So I had my own type of March Madness, I finished 10 books during the last 31 days which is a personal record.  Although half of them were under 200 pages, I don’t particularly care because they are no longer on my TBR pile.  My last book of the month, Sailing the Wine-Dark Sea, was my first REREAD of the year and I finally got back to reading Discworld for the first time since Christmas.

I’ve been thinking long and hard about my reading around October 31st for the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation.  At the bottom of my list I have Will Durant’s The Reformation, which is the sixth volume of his  The Story of Civilization series, which I had purchased last year with the intention of reading solely for the Reformation anniversary.  But then earlier this year I found the other 10 volumes at my local used book store, which about half the books I’ve reviewed have come from, and snatched them up.  So now that I have the entire series, both he and his wife died after publishing Volume XI which goes to the end of the Napoleonic era, I don’t want to read Volume VI and later start at Volume I.  So I’m actively looking for another book to read for the Reformation, any suggestions will be welcomed.

  1. Happy to see Poe on your list! I am a big fan of his stories & poems! My last oral exam at uni was about his works and that was the only time I actually enjoyed preparing for it 🙂

    I am also reading ‘Rogues’ but it’s a slow process and I haven’t felt like reading a short story in a while.

    • The last time I read Poe was in high school, so around 17-18 years ago. So when I saw a book with all of his material, I quickly picked it up and have been waiting patiently until it’s turn came up on my Reading List.

      I purchases “Rogues” for one story, ‘The Rogue Prince’ by GRRM. The other stories either are a bonus or just something to read.
