Book of the Month… Time Flies!

*Catch the UPDATES at the bottom of this post*

I love reading. The idea of not being able to put a good book down, finding a new series to dive into, swapping stories of great reads with complete strangers… I love it all.

When I came up with the idea of blogging about doing something new every day this year, one of my categories I cooked up that got me the most excited was the Book of the Month. Unfortunately, now I am being reminded…  daily… why I never read very much anymore. It is just a hard activity to wedge in daily, even just one monthly book. I am lucky to be part of many fabulous groups- family, extended family, church, schools, neighborhood, etc. Wonderful people and a home that all keep me hopping. I can’t complain, I can only praise and be thankful.

But, I do miss reading.

I sat down for the first time this month to start to read my book for the month“Hild,” by Nicola Griffith. Several chapters in, and this is proving to be a good read. I could use a good dictionary of Old English/Old Scottish/Various Other Lost Languages of the Island…

This novel could use a glossary. Correction- this novel has a glossary, and it also has a fabulously responsive author! Nicola Griffith, thank you for commenting that not only is there a glossary in the back as part of the author’s notes, but there are extras available on your blog here on WordPress- NicolaGriffith.com/2014/02/24/hild/

Pushing 50 and it's time to try a few (maybe... 365?) new things. This blog is not about reinventing oneself or one's life, but about how much fun one can have while going out on a limb and branching out. Kicking anxiety's butt one day at a time, yeah!

    1. I found it last night when I picked up the book again and just sat down to update the post- thank you for the comment! I am REALLY loving the book, with your attention to detail I feel like I am right there with Hild, quielty observing with a “quiet mouth, bright mind” as Breguswith teaches.
