The Reading List.

ebook and books II

So I have Kindle Unlimited at the moment, to make it worth it.  I need to read at least nine books a month, otherwise there really isn’t much point in having the account.

This month, I’m reading:

1. Perseverance

I’ve finished this one already.  It’s an interesting look into Anne Boleyn.  (I’m a huge Tudor nerd).

2. The Everything Zen Book

Slowly making my way through this.

3. Waking Up Catholic

Finished this one as well. I enjoy reading books on religions.  I tend to read a little bit of everything.  It was well written and I did learn a number of things I never knew about Catholicism.

4. Sweating Sickness in a Nutshell

Finished this one.  It was a fascinating look at an epidemic that went through England in the 1400s – 1500s, then disappeared.  Have I mentioned I’m a history nerd?

5. To Marry an English Lord

6. The Fiction Writer’s Book of Checklists

7. The Yuletide Countess

8.  Kitchen Confidential

I love Anthony Bourdain–in small doses.  I enjoy his shows quite a bit–in small doses.  His book is not small doses.  I couldn’t make it through it. 

9. TBD

    Is Perseverance worth a read? I’ve noticed it cropping up in ‘books recommended for you’ type lists but haven’t seen a review yet.

      It’s not the best Tudor fictional tale I’ve read. Probably not even top ten. I think maybe most telling is, I honestly can’t remember what I read and I only read it a few days ago.

        Ah great thanks! I kind of thought it might be the case but didn’t want to miss a potential gem 😀

    The Fiction Writer’s Book of Checklists, now that sounds like one I need to add to my shelf! I may have read, To Marry an English Lord, it sounds familiar. 🙂

      I’m finding To Marry an English Lord very fascinating. I love all the little tidbits about society back then.
