I read a little in February — Honest, I did!
Here we are 1/3 of the way through March, and I am just now getting around to sharing my February reading. The list of books isn’t that long, so I don’t know why I have put it off.
My third piece of fiction this year, I read Empress of Eternity by L.E. Modesitt, Jr. The friend who loaned me the book told me it was a little hard to keep track of because it is three stories taking place in the same place at different “times”. I really didn’t have any trouble with that, but it was a hard book to read in other ways. I enjoyed the story, though. I am not rushing out to read more by Modesitt, though. I didn’t enjoy the book that much.
My second non-fiction book was At Home in the World: The Letters of Thomas Merton and Rosemary Radford Ruether edited by Mary Tardiff. I was fascinated by it. When I worked at the seminary college, I used some Merton books, and I always enjoyed them. He was a fascinating person. This book wouldn’t be for everyone, but I really liked it.
I also read Journey to the Center of the Earth by Jules Verne. I can’t believe I had never read it before. It was an easy read, and I enjoyed it a lot. I am really glad that I decided to make an effort to read classics this year. It will be fun!
