1000 Books Project - Update 2 (Capote's In Cold Blood)

Sadly, I've had to make the difficult decision to shelve Sagas of the Icelanders for another time. Frankly, my move was hell. I had no time to read and now that I'm moved, all the unpacking and shelving of books is taking up a ton of my time. So, perhaps we will read Sagas on next year's 1000 Books Project.

We are still doing In Cold Blood this month. I'm hoping to finish it in time for Banned Books Week (September 27 - October 3, 2020). No set schedule. Just read the book and we will discuss (if anyone is participating) the last week of September or early in October. Stay tuned here for the discussion post.

Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee is still on for November. I hope you will be joining us!

Thanks for bearing with me!



  1. In Cold Blood was really well-written, and shocking. I always suggest to anyone reading it not to read it before bedtime. Or at Christmas. It just stays with you.

    I just finished Bury My Heart this summer. Also good, but very sad.

  2. I'm terrible and never got to anything but Herodotus before the pandemic hit. I read Bury My Heart back in high school and I started the Sagas but didn't get passed the preface... but I'd like to try that one again maybe in the spring. Didn't get to In Cold Blood either but it's still one the list. Hopefully I can stick to some reading challenges this next year! 2021 woot!
