My Stack of Books: May's Reads

I thought I read more during May--this list is surprisingly short!  I was probably sampling books--skimming through and not finishing them.  I only write down what I finish. So without further ado,

Product Details

Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare.  My favorite Shakespeare play.  I am hoping to see the new film version--there is a small theater in town that shows the more arty films, and I'd bet that this will play there.  9 out of 10

Faith by Jennifer Haigh.  This is the third book of Haigh's that I have read.  The subject (Catholic priest in Boston is removed from his parish) made me squirm.  I wasn't sure I even wanted to read it, but it was worth it.  It wasn't what I thought it was going to be--does that make sense?  6 out of 10

The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry by Rachel Joyce.  This was my first 10 out of 10 for the year.  I picked this one up at a bookstore in the Chicago airport because I needed a book to read on the flight home.  What a happy find.  I came to this book with no expectations, and it was such a delight.

That's a wrap for May.  The kids get out of school this week, so I am moving into Summer Reading Mode!  See you next month.
