I'm doing well against my goal of an average of a book a month this year. Only six months into the year, I've completed seven books. When I last spoke of my reading, I was beginning Mitchner's The Covenant. Well, I got about 100 pages into it and decided I needed an intermission, so I picked up a copy of Ender's Game. It's a book that most of my friends have read -- many of them having read it in high school. After my recent foray into Card's Sarah and Rebeccah, I had an appetite for more of his work. Last week, I was at the bookstore and found a paperback copy of Ender's Game, so I went ahead and picked it up.
I finished reading it (save half of the introduction) last night. I thoroughly enjoyed it.
sidelobe lent me a copy of the next book in the series, Speaker For The Dead, which I thought I'd pick up once I conquered another hundred pages of The Covenant. Really, that was my plan. But, once I got home, I started thumbing through it a little and I've found myself well into the first chapter. So, it seems that I may end up going ahead and reading it before I get back to my Mitchner.
Regardless, it really is nice to be reading with some regularity again.
