2023

reading goal: 25 books - at least 3 non-fiction books

reading reality:

if a single book spans more than one month of reading, it is catagorized in the month I finished it.

Cover of Ragtime

Ragtime by E.L. Doctorow

currently

picked up a copy at my fave used book store while on vacation. familiar with the musical first; I couldn't help but hear the music of the prologue while reading the first chapter.

on the shelf
Cover of The Long Game 1996-2003: The Inside Story of How the BBC Brought Back Doctor Who.

The Long Game 1996-2003: The Inside Story of How the BBC Brought Back Doctor Who by Paul Hayes

set aside

after hearing Paul Hayes on The Doctor Who Show podcast, I was curious enough about this book to buy it. there may as well be a sticker on the cover that reads "for Whovians only" but nevertheless it is a worthwhile read and offers insight into the inner workings of the BBC. it's just, uh, dense.

Cover of Beowulf: A New Translation

Beowulf: A New Translation by Maria Dahvana Headley

set aside

started in april 2021 and was enjoying it right up until I set it aside! I am a distracted reader, but keen to pick this one back up.
