My December in Review

The It’s Monday What Are You Reading meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. I’ve started compiling my lists monthly instead of weekly.

Books completed this month:
The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid by Bill Bryson
Golden Age by Jane Smiley
Bill Bryson's African Diary by Bill Bryson
Among the Janeites: A Journey Through the World of Jane Austen Fandom by Deborah Yaffe
Exploring Calvin and Hobbes: An Exhibition Catalogue by Bill Watterson
Christmas Pudding and Pigeon Pie by Nancy Mitford

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
I don't normally have this many in process, but in December I was having trouble staying on track and getting into books. I have been warding off a book slump for the last couple of months and anything too dense or non-linearly structured just isn't working for me right now.
Thomas Jefferson: The Art of Power by Jon Meacham -- not sure my brain is the right place for this book right now.
The Botanist and the Vintner: How Wine Was Saved for the World by Christy Campbell -- not sure this book is for me. Might be a DNF.
We That Are Left by Clare Clark -- Need a more linear book at the moment.
Living and Dying in Brick City by Sampson Davis (audio)

What I acquired this month:
Exploring Calvin and Hobbes: An Exhibition Catalogue by Bill Watterson (Christmas gift)
Little House Living: The Make-Your-Own Guide to a Frugal, Simple, and Self-Sufficient Life by Merissa Alink (Christmas gift)
