It's Monday, What are you reading? meme, which is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, to catch you up on what I've been reading.
To be honest it's been a pretty slow month so far, but I have been reading a little bit. Last week I started reading Silence by Shusaku Endo for the Japanese Literature Book Group discussion coming up soon on June 28th. I'm enjoying it as it's a fascinating episode in Japan's history. I'm over halfway now so I should have no problem finishing it up this week.
I've also just started to read Dreams Underfoot by Charles de Lint, which I'm buddy reading with Kelly of The Written World. It's a collection of short stories and I've only read the first one so far but I'm looking forward to spending more time on them soon.
I realised that I was about to completely fail Carl's Once Upon a Time Challenge, even though I only signed up to read one book! So I sat down Sunday afternoon, and read in its entirety, the delightful old Japanese folk tale, The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter. Review still to come but challenge fail averted... kind of anyway. Let's not talk about the other reading challenges that I'm not doing very well on this year, ok?
Next up, I plan to add Taroko Gorge by Jacob Ritari to the mix as my commuting book. The story sounds interesting and Unbridled Books haven't let me down yet (this'll be my fourth one of their books to read) so I'm really looking forward to it.
