2022 General Reading: May (+ Writing Update)
First day of Winter in this part of the world. Not cold, of course. Dunedin hasn’t had a properly cold winter since 2015. But the skies are appropriately grey.
It is also time for my monthly reading and writing update.
Completed reads for May:
- Sad Cypress, by Agatha Christie
- The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding, by Agatha Christie
- The Shield, by Menander (fragments)
- The Hero, by Menander (fragments)
- The Farmer, by Menander (fragments)
- The Sicyonians, by Menander (fragments)
- The Characters, by Theophrastus
- The Lover of Lies, by Lucian of Samosata
- Parker Pyne Investigates, by Agatha Christie
- The Mysterious Mr Quin, by Agatha Christie
- The Anglo-Saxon Chronicle
- Partners in Crime, by Agatha Christie
- All Hallows’ Eve, by Charles Williams
- The Sittaford Mystery, by Agatha Christie
I have now read more Agatha Christie books (42) than Terry Pratchett books (41 plus half of Good Omens). The only author by whom I have read more individual books is Michael Moorcock (56).
In the writing department, May was unfortunately a fairly quiet month on account of pesky real-life commitments getting in the way, though I did get a decent amount of editing done. Old Phuul sits at a tad over 57,600 words.
