2019 Reading Plan (March Update)


February was another fine month for reading as I completed six books, which was more than doubled my total for the year so far.  Before I go further into the month here’s the stats.

Overall Total: 11/45 (24.4%)
Original List: 8/45 (17.8%)
Total Pages: 4494 (408.6)

The biggest book I finished this month was The Histories by Herodotus, one of my scheduled home reads.  The first and classic history book was a great read, especially if your a history enthusiast.  Another great history was Miracle at Philadelphia by Catherine Drinker Bowen.  On the fiction side, there was unfortunately a lot to be desired from both Divide and Conquer and Shadow & Claw, even though the latter began well it fell off in quality.

I’ve started the last book in Zecharia Sitchin’s The Earth Chronicles series, approximately halfway through so be on the lookout for the review on the other side of the weekend.  And looking further into March, I’ve got a Dirk Pitt book and another Op-Center reread on tap but before them comes David Mitchell’s The Bone Clocks.  I purchased this book at a 3 for 2 sale at Barnes & Noble at the end of July 2015, so I’ve slowly been making my way towards this book and I have no idea what to expect so I’m going in with an open mind and with trepidation.

Before I finish off this post, I’d like everyone to know that I’ll be two more “unscheduled” books to my reading this year.  I don’t know when I’ll be reading them because it’ll depend on when they’re delivered through mail.  I’ll be receiving Women Warriors: An Unexpected History by Pamela D. Toler through LibraryThing’s Early Reviewer’s program and The National Team: The Inside Story of the Women who Changed Soccer by Caitlin Murray through Goodread’s First Reads program.
