Books read in the month of July

I love the smell of rain. The sound of it in the gutters. The way it fogs up the windows on the bus. It's really excellent weather to stay inside reading, which is why I was standing at the bus stop downtown at 9:30 at night in it.

Here are the books I read in July:

  1. The House With the Clock in Its Walls (John Bellairs), 179 pages, finished 7/1/08
  1. Versailles (Kathryn Davis), 206 pages, finished 7/5/08
  1. Doomsday Book (Connie Willis), 578 pages, finished 7/8/08
  1. Havemercy (Jaida Jones and Danielle Bennett), 388 pages, finished 7/25/08
  1. A Shropshire Lad (A.E. Housman), finished 7/26/08
  1. Narrative Poems (C.S. Lewis), 178 pages, finished 7/28/08
All pretty nifty. Not to mention, that whole writing a novel thing. Most of one, anyway.

Also, during the month, I have started reading The English Patient (Michael Ondaatje), Tales from the Macabre (Daphne du Maurier), Madame Bovary (Gustave Flaubert), Three Men in a Boat (Jerome K. Jerome), and The Poems of Oscar Wilde (these last three via DailyLit). I've already talked a bit about The English Patient, and I'm not far enough into the others to really comment on them, except that Three Men in a Boat is most entertaining.
