2017 Reading Plan (April Update)

Sadly April was a disappoint, I only completed 7 books.  So instead of matching the 10 books in March, I read more books than all of January and February combine (6).

The big news from my books is that I finished the last volume of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire and The Collected Poems of Emily Dickinson, my biggest primary and home reads.  Gibbon was everything I could have hoped for, I can see why it is a classic and changed historiography forever.  The collection of Dickinson poems was only a sampler when compared to her overall production, but I now have to read everything of her’s in the future.

Finally, I found two books that will be my special Reformation reading come October-November 2017.  I purchased The Division of Christendom by Hans J. Hillerbrand and Reformations: The Early Modern World, 1450-1650 by Carlos M.N. Eire.  Hillerbrand’s book will focus more on the religious aspects of the Reformation while Eire’s will be a combination of religious, cultural, societal, and political.  So I’m pretty happy about getting these two books and am really looking forward to reading them in five months.
