2017 Reading Plan (May Update)

The end of May marks my One-Year Anniversary on WordPress!

I completed only 4 books this past month to bring my total to 27, however given that to reach my goal of 40 total books this year I needed to reach at least 4 books in a month four times I happy with the number.  Only one of the books, Sabbath Roots, was a reread which brings my total to 3 so the others are all “first-time” reads.

May is also the month in which I published the most posts ever in any forum I’ve written on, which I believe is 27.  It helped that The Ultimate Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and Rogues were omnibus/anthology collections that allowed me to review each story, but still that is a lot of posts and I must say a little impressive for me.

Besides continuing with Rogues to finish it off and then continue with my list below, I need to make a dent in Walt Whitman’s Leaves of Grass (First Edition & Death-Bed Edition) which sadly I hardly read this month.  Given the book is around 930 pages that is bad, I can’t let his work by like my multi-year reading of Robert Frost.  And I need to write my “What If?” entry that I’ve been planning to do since I started this blog because soon I’m going to need to write a little essay on why I’m (re)reading Zecharia Sitchin before I start.

That’s all for this month, talk to you later.
