I managed to finish last week's book. Just thought I'd mention that since I whined on about it so.
After soldiering on through that one, I decided to try one of the challenge categories that I really dreaded...steampunk...and I promised myself that I could lay it aside if I hated it.
Chronicles of Steele: Raven by Pauline Creeden
Surprisingly, I didn't. I will never be a devotee, but I finished it on Sunday, and it was more enjoyable than the one before it.
That makes 26 books ticked off of my 2017 reading challenge. I believe...yes, indeed...that makes an even 50%. Hmmm...didn't someone predict October would see me at 50%? :) Of course from here on out, it may get harder to fill the categories. Things like a book on career advice...one from a non-human perspective...one that has over 800 pages! Oy!
My Husband's Wife: A Novel by Jane Corry
I started this one on Monday. I made a lot of progress since I sat with my knee up a good part of the afternoon and evening. Yesterday my knee felt a lot better, so didn't get to spend as much time reading, but it did keep me up quite late.
