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.
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?
