I am a busy mom to two mini adult children. I am learning to do things that don't revolve around their schedules, and I am doing things for myself now. I am trying to bounce back after a difficult time, and it's slow going.
I just finished two audiobooks when I was on my trip. I started a new one that is a short one, so I should finish it this week. Dad Is Fat by Jim Gaffigan.
I have to juggle around paper books and library books to figure out what I am going to read next. I have bookclub books due, so I need to figure out which one to start. I’m leaning toward Picnic at Hanging Rock, which I think is the next one. I’ll have to check the schedule.
I have several going on Kindle, as usual. Nothing noteworthy quite yet, though.
I didn’t think I was going to enjoy this book as much as I did. I hadn’t read much about Harper Lee before, and the book shed some light onto who she was. The trial she was researching was very interesting, too.
The book flowed well, and the author didn’t try to bounce back and forth between time periods and characters, so it made it easier to follow. It was well-written, and I would definitely recommend it to those who like non-fiction
The above linked article talks about how important it is for kids to read books that make them uncomfortable, since history was messy, and they need to know about history. They shouldn’t be sheltered. The books below were mentioned in the article. I’ve only read one of the books, but it was wonderful and I don’t regret reading it at all. The others are in my TBR pile. Classics.
