Hey, guys! This is a new type of post that I hope to make a regular part of the website. It is essentially a list of the books that I am currently reading/hoping to read in the near future. I have a terrible habit of splitting my attention between several books at one time. Am I the only one who does this?
As an avid reader, it is easy to collect many more books than I have time for at any one point in time (I guess the most books that can be read at one point in time is exactly that: one). I think that many of you will understand the feeling as well. You are perusing the shelves at your favorite bookstore and an intriguing, new cover captures your eye. You are faced with the sudden desire, nay, inexorable reality that you are going to buy that book. No matter that there is a stack at home already calling your name!
Right now, I am reading the following books:
1. & 2. The Fifty-Year Mission: The First 25 Years and The Fifty-Year Mission: The Next 25 Years by Mark A. Altman & Edward Gross:
This is a two-volume work that chronicles the history behind my favorite TV franchise of all time: Star Trek. It is told through numerous quotes from those involved in Star Trek with informational sections acting as bridges to the quotes. It is fascinating and also extremely long.
3. Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen
Jane Austen is one of my favorite writers of all-time. Her subtle humor and wit makes any subject fascinating. One major reason that I am enjoying Northanger Abbey is because it is a parody of Gothic novels, and I have an English master’s degree with a specialization in Gothic Studies.
4. Buffering by Hannah Hart
I am hoping to finish this book first and have a review up in the near future. If you have never heard of Hannah Hart, go ahead and check out her YouTube channel. Hannah Hart’s most recent book is much more personal than My Drunk Kitchen and is a fascinating read so far.
What are you guys reading right now? There are just so many good books that it’s impossible to choose! Keep in mind, these are only the books that I am currently reading. There are so many more on my list!
