It's Monday! What Are You Reading? August 15th

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? has been hosted for about the past two years by Sheila of One Person's Journey Through A World Of  Books. Congratulations on reaching that 100th post for this meme. And, I've said it before, but thanks for keeping us all on track with our reading.

I'm a little delayed in getting my response up this morning - there was a power outage. Got lucky though, as they were forecasting that it would b a few more hours before we all got our power back.

Last week I got my usual one book read:
The Two Towers by J.R.R. Tolkien. Fantasy, fiction. The second part of my all-time favourite book, The Lord of the Rings. Again, while I was reading The Two Towers, I kept hearing the voices from the BBC Radio Play version of it - especially the voice of Peter Woodthorpe, who spoke the part of Gollum, but also Ian Holm (Frodo) and several of the others. I've really got to listen to that one again (but not while I'm trying to read the book).

I'm currently reading:
Wheelock's Latin, 6th Edition, Revised by Frederic M. Wheelock. My primary Latin textbook from both my first and second year classes. I'm attempting to work my way through it again. Surprisingly (though it's only the first chapter so far), I'm remembering more of it than I thought I would.

The Annotated Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien. Edited by Douglas A. Anderson. A truly spectacular edition of the book.

I intend to read:
The Return of the King by J.R.R. Tolkien. The third part of The Lord of the Rings. This is definitely the next book I'm going to be reading.

Catalyst by Anne McCaffrey and Elizabeth Anne Scarborough. Fiction, fantasy and a library book. I really need to get to this book in the near future.
