Reading List – August 2019

Like I did in May, I’m going to read a series of books this month!  I’m very excited to continue this series, which I sampled a bit back in September 2018…

The Vorkosigan Saga by Lois McMaster Bujold


In September, I followed my best friend’s advice and began the Vorkosigan series.  It’s a massive series published out of chronological order, so I went to Wiki for some help and chose to read what are known as the “Cordelia books.”  They were fantastic.

So I look very much forward to beginning the Miles books (which is most of the series).  I trust that McMaster Bujold will continue to please me!

      Sometimes I think about slowing down, but I think I’ve got a pace down which I can follow. Since I’ve discovered audiobooks at the library, my reading pace has gone way up!

      • What Words May Come says:

        I mostly do audiobooks, but usually only when I’m driving any distance or when I walk in the afternoons. When I was in sales from 1996-2006 I listened to a ton on cassette and CD. Kept my long drives tolerable. I only read books when I flew.

        I think I enjoy reading text better, but you can’t multitask when you’re doing that. So I try to read as much of those as I can, but I think I’m getting to a point where I’m switching to mostly audiobook.

      • What Words May Come says:

        My wife is the same way. She listens more to audiobooks now because she is walking 2019 miles this year, so she has to walk a minumum of 5.53 miles everyday… She has listened to 40+ books this year.

    Good luck on your reading this month! I always find new titles from you because I’m not a big sci-fi reader, but every now and then, something you read/recommend will pique my interest (like Binti which I devoured in about an hour and a half—a review will come soon on my blog, but thank you for that recommendation!)

    I’ve been reading fantasy, murder mystery and titles I exchange at the Little free libraries in my area or books from my Library Cafe which strike my fancy. I did read a series based on early American history with some intrigue and murder for the main characters to solve.

    Enjoy your series. 🙂
