What did I read last week?
The Family Plot by Cherie Priest: Done! My review is here.
The Girl with the Lower Back Tattoo by Amy Schumer: Absolutely amazing audiobook! I’ll write up a review later this week. Meanwhile, just know that Amy Schumer’s narration of her own book is perfect, and the book itself is just as funny and vulgar as you’d expect — but also surprisingly powerful and moving. More to come…
I went to the Big Book Sale benefiting San Francisco’s public libraries, and came home with (for me) a very modest haul… because I still haven’t found room on my shelves for all the books I picked up at the last library sale.
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
The Magician’s Land by Lev Grossman: Finishing up the trilogy!
Now playing via audiobook:
Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix by J. K. Rowling, narrated by Jim Dale. Onward I go with my HP audio adventure.
With my book group (2 chapters per week of each):
- Written in My Own Heart’s Blood by Diana Gabaldon
- A Farewell To Arms by Ernest Hemingway
Via the Serial Reader app (read about it here):
- Moby Dick by Herman Melville: — as of this week, I’m at 48%! I hate to say it, but the initial enjoyment is wearing off. I’ve been pretty bored with Moby Dick this past week… but I’m soldiering on. I’ve come this far — I’m going to see it through!
So many books, so little time…
