Down Goes my April/May Read of the Month

Well, I tried.  No, I really tried to finish my April Read of the Month, Unwind by Neal Shusterman.  What was my April Read of the Month, then became my April/May Read of the Month.  I tried using the excuse that I was too busy to get any reading done during April and May. With my day job, coaching, college teaching and family commitments it was an easy excuse to rely upon.  However, once things slowed down during these final weeks of May I still did not find myself picking up Unwind during any free time.  Obviously, I was not really enjoying the book that much.  As I have stated before, I will not struggle through a book just to finish.  If I am not enjoying the book, I will stop.....and that is what I will do today, sorry but I am finished with Unwind.

Now the question is what will be my Read of the Month for June?  Just last week I wrote about my summer reading list for 2012.  The Steve Jobs biography is sitting on my desk at work, but I really do not want to start the summer off with a biography.  It just does not have the right "feel" I guess for a summer read.  I really think I may go throwback and start of with The Great Gatsby.  The recently released movie trailer has me really excited about re-reading one of my favorite books of all time.  I will make my choice quickly and will have a post Wednesday to let everyone know.

Also, on a side note, it was nice to see The News Herald print some of my April entry, A Once In a Lifetime Event (which detailed my family meeting President Obama at Detroit Metro Airport).  If you found this blog thanks to the printed article clink the link to finish reading my entry and welcome.  Feel free to comment and/or email if you have any questions. 


  1. This geek wants to finish reading the Hunger Games trilogy. After that I will probably retreat to my specialty and read Pride and Prejudice. Love me my Jane Austen.

  2. Hi Ashley, thanks for the comment. I loved The Hunger Games and Catching Fire, Mockingjay not so much. I think I have a book picked out, I will write about it tomorrow!
