Mini Update Sticky Post: May 15, 2020

My non-fiction reading has temporarily slowed, as I’ve recently finished Deni Ellis Béchard’s book about conservation efforts towards the bonobos in Congo. (My last #ReadtheChange selection is here.) Usually I rely heavily on the public library for my non-fiction. Next up, though, is Vera Brittain’s Testament of Youth.

In MustReadEverything authors, I’ve been enjoying Toni Morrison’s A Mercy and Home. For two very slim volumes, I’ve noted many memorable passages.

Rereading? Katherine Paterson’s The Sign of the Chrysanthemum. New-to-me? Jean-Michael Fortier’s The Unknown Huntsman (wickedly funny). Debut? Tyler Enfield’s Like Rum-Drunk Angels. In quiet moments? Eduardo Galeano’s The Book of Embraces. In extended afternoons? Stephen King’s It. And from my 2020 Must-Read list? Lewis Grassic Gibbon’s Scots Quair trilogy.

So many books to talk about! Including what’s currently in my bookbag, notebook, stacks and reading log.

Also, I’ve begun the last full collection in my three-years-and-then-some Mavis Gallant short story reading project: join in, if you wish.

How about you: what are you reading these days, and what are you looking forward to reading soon?
