What Are You Reading in September?

I am on something of a reading tear this month, and being on vacation this week means that I’m able to tie up some bookish odds and ends.

Since 1st September, I’ve finished:

  • The Pre-Raphaelites by Robert de la Sizeranne
  • A Place in the Country by W.G. Sebald
  • City of Style: Exploring Los Angeles Fashion from Bohemian to Rock by Melissa Magsaysay
  • Super Black: American Pop Culture and Black Superheroes by Adilifu Nama

I’m currently reading:

  • The Fellowship: The Literary Lives of the Inklings: J.R.R. Tolkien, C.S. Lewis, Owen Barfield, Charles Williams by Philip Zaleski and Carol Zaleski

To be read by 30th September:

  • Heretics and Heroes: How Renaissance Artists and Reformation Priests Created Our World by Thomas Cahill
  • Kahlo by Gerry Souter
  • Your Movie Sucks by Roger Ebert
  • The Big Book of Bill Murray: A Critical Appreciation of the World’s Finest Actor by Robert Schnakenberg
  • My Paris Dream by Kate Betts
  • Nom de Plume: A (Secret) History of Pseudonyms by Carmela Ciuraru

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

Please share with me in the comments.

Happy reading!

  1. So little time! Currently reading the indie-published The House at Zarona – A Tale of Corsica by Vanessa Couchman. I’m not at all sure about it yet. Fairly pedestrian in its writing and a little predictable. We shall see.


  2. I’ve just started Comanche Moon by Larry McMurtry. While nothing comes close to Lonesome Dove I still love his books and am in need of a good fiction fix. Nom de Plume: A (Secret) History of Pseudonyms sounds really interesting. As does Heretics and Heroes: How Renaissance Artists and Reformation Priests Created Our World.


  3. The book on The Inklings sounds really good! Some great choices on your list, including the Roger Ebert book.

    Have just finished “Russian Winter” by Daphne Kalotay, which I liked more than I expected. Am reading “Conspiracy of Fools” by Kurt Eichenwald, about the rise & fall of Enron, and I can not put it down!
