I had a slow reading month in May. It was partly because I had several work projects in May taking more of my time and partly because I wasn't really in a fiction mood. I read five books and four were nonfiction.
I am working my way through the Books by the Bay mystery series by Ellery Adams. I finished book 4 in May. I've started book five but haven't read more than a chapter or two. I hope to pick up more fiction this month since I can start reading outdoors in my hammock. It's still cool here and we've had a lot of rain, but summer is coming.
The best nonfiction book I read was Alan Fadeling's An Unhurried LIfe. I have read the Unhurried Leader a while ago but I think I liked this one better. I also read The Listening Life and The Cultivated Life so I'm sensing there's a theme here...
In June, I hope to finish all the Books by the Bay mysteries. For my nonfiction, I'll be focusing on books that deal with race, the church, repentance, and racial healing. I have a few I've been wanting to read, just needed the mental clarity to do so. I think I'm ready.
How about you? What did you read in May? What are looking forward to digging into in June?
