15 Books of Summer!

wrapped up last months reading but forgot to add my link in time for the final round-up of Wyrd & Wonder

The 20 Books of Summer challenge is hosted by 746 Books. I am joining with a goal of 15 books!

Wild Card 

July: 5 
The Road to Wigan Pier by George Orwell 
The Protestant Ethic & the Spirit of Capitalism by Max Weber (nonfiction)(reread) (I read this earlier this year but never reviewed it; I think I need to read it again to write about it properly)

The Obelisk Gate by NK Jemisin (reread)
Wild Card

August: 5
Ajax by Sophocles
Electra by Sophocles 
The Gorgias by Plato – another nonfiction that I need to reread

This blog is for my thoughts on reading. A couple of my friends on GoodReads have blogs, so eventually I decided to start one myself. I hope to get involved in the book blogging community and become a better reader and writer! I am not accepting copies of new books for review, but I would be interested in new editions or new translations of classic authors. Find me on Upwork (as an editor) in the profile link. From September 2018 to October 2020 I blogged at Blogger.

  1. 15 but massive or very thoughtful books, so you will need the time. Quite a different list to most people, but a lot to enjoy there. I had to read the Weber for my anthropology degree, and write an essay about it, so I remember it well (still).
