You won’t find better silent film audiences anywhere.

What Are You Reading in July?

Do you believe in the concept of beach reads? I don’t. Not for me, anyway! My habits are fairly solid year-round.

Things are finally back on-track for me; I had a couple of really light reading months. It feels good to return to normal.

Since 1st July, I’ve finished:

  • Women in the Middle Ages: The lives of real women in a vibrant age of transition by Frances and Joseph Gies

I’m almost done with:

  • Intellectuals: From Marx and Tolstoy to Sartre and Chomsky by Paul Johnson
  • Own It!: Be the Boss of Your Life–at Home and in the Workplace by Tabatha Coffey
  • The Who, the What, and the When: 65 Artists Illustrate the Secret Sidekicks of History by Jenny Volvovski, Julia Rothman, and Matt Lamothe

To Be Read by 31st July:

  • Buzz: The Life and Art of Busby Berkeley by Jeffrey Spivak
  • Grace: A Memoir by Grace Coddington
  • The Ultimate Illustrated beats Chronology by Robert Niemi
  • HAVOC in its third year by Ronan Bennett
  • Movie Icons: Welles by TASCHEN

Which book on your list do you most look forward to reading?

Please share with me in the comments.

Happy reading!
