What Are You Reading in April?

What is on your reading list this month?

Do your reading habits change with the seasons, or are you at all times equal opportunity?

I haven’t finished one book this month, although I am quite close to finishing the first two. My list is unusually light, and skews almost exclusively towards film history and criticism. I’ll likely add at least a few more books to April’s pile before the month is through.

Here’s what is on my reading list this month:

  • The First King of Hollywood: The Life of Douglas Fairbanks by Tracey Goessi
  • The A to Z of Italian Cinema by Gino Moliterno
  • Silent Stars by Jeanine Basinger (I’ve read this before)
  • A Woman’s View: How Hollywood Spoke to Women 1930-1960 by Jeanine Basinger (I’m pretty sure I’ve read this once before, as well)
  • The White Goddess: A Historical Grammar of Poetic Myth by Robert Graves (I’ve read several other books by Graves, but not this undeniable classic)
  • Elizabeth Taylor: A Passion for Life: The Wit and Wisdom of a Legend by Joseph Papa

What is your favourite book this month?

Happy reading.
