I have a new reading plan for 2019 that I am calling Clusters. A cluster consists of four books: 2 fiction (1 read, 1 audiobook), 1 non-fiction (educational), and 1 memoir (or biography) all going at the same time. I don’t start a new cluster until all four are complete. That might mean some down time between books and that is okay. Reading is a pleasure not a goal to be checked off my list.

  • Cluster 1 January: Artemis Fowl (fiction, on audiobook) & Kingdom of the Blind (fiction, not audiobook), New Celtic Monasticism (educational), and Finding Saint David of Wales (biography).
  •  Cluster 2 January & February:  Circe (fiction, audiobook) & Cherringham 12-15 (fiction), The Celtic Way of Prayer (educational), and Educated (memoir).
  • Cluster 3, February: Stardust (fiction, audiobook) & Cherringham 16-18 (fiction), Atomic Habits (educational), and The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks (biography).
  • Cluster 4, March: The Dark is Rising series (fiction, audiobook) & Cherringham 19-24 (fiction), The Good Neighbor (biography), and Anam Cara (Educational)
  • Cluster 5, April: Anne of Green Gables series (fiction, audiobook) & The Long Winter (fiction), The Nature Principle (educational), and  —- (biography)
  • Cluster 6: May: The Overstory (fiction, audiobook) & The Quantum series (fiction), My Family and Other Animals (non-fiction), Be a Hobbit; Save the Earth (education)
  • Just about the end of May I decided  the clusters weren’t working. So back to a regular list.
