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.
