Summer books (2)

27 Aug


Yeap, the blogger Tiffany was spot on when she said that the best time to read long and slow books is in the summer.

I managed to finish The Prize: The Epic Quest for Oil, Money and Power (928 pages) in less than two months (July 2 to August 25). This compares to the 8+ months i spent on The Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. Considering that i also read A Bracelet of Willow and Copper this was a great decision.

Summer now belongs to the long books! or is it the other way around?! :-S

I should also mention that The Prize is an absolutely brilliant book which i highly recommend.

The plan now was to read an Officer and a Spy next but i ended up starting The Power of Habit. I had given it as a gift to a friend a month ago and i wanted to be able to talk about it. I’m around 10% in though and it’s not exactly the book i thought it would be. It”s basically just stories or “anecdotes” so far. Similar to what you would find in a newspaper or magazine article which is disappointing. I expected something along the lines of Thinking Fast and Slow but it does not seem to be that kind of book. Anyway, it’s short and easy to read so i will keep at it.
