Currently on the bedside table

... *still* reading. Sigh. I seem to be good at picking up and starting books but not finishing them. Here are exhibits A and B.


I started "Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine" last September. I can't remember why I picked it up in the first place. I got as far as the first couple of chapters and then October came in, and then I had to pick up a non-fiction title for the book club discussion of the month. Enter "H is for Hawk," which, because it is non-fiction, I failed to finish in time for the discussion. FAIL.



Not to mention, I still haven't finished "North and South," my classic pick for July. July! Oh my goodness. To be fair, though, it is a long book. But since it's already November... I think I don't have any excuse anymore. Other than real life, that is.

But that's not to say that I didn't finish any reading at all. I managed to finish the audiobook of "Crazy Rich Asians" only recently. Of course I finished "A Gentleman In Moscow" for my September book club discussion but that doesn't count, does it?

It's a long weekend on this side of the world, and I'm hoping to finish reading at least one of these books that I've left hanging. Which would you place your bets on?
