My book consumption slowed to a trickle in the weeks surrounding our move. Too much to do, too little sleep, no time to think or, after a certain point, properly process words. It was that draining. No joke.
Now that most of the volumes are back on their shelves, my reading is nearly back to its normal, healthy pace. Yay!
Here’s what I’m actively digging at the moment:
- Murder in St. Augustine: The Mysterious Death of Athalia Ponsell Lindsley by Elizabeth Randall (I’m including this book, even though I finished it last night.)
- Let Fury Have the Hour: The Punk Rock Politics of Joe Strummer Edited and with an Introduction by Antonio D’Ambrosio
- Hollywood Character Actors by James Robert Parish with Earl Anderson, Richard E. Braff, John Robert Cocchi, and Harry Purvis
- A Glorious Freedom: Older Women Leading Extraordinary Lives by Lisa Congdon
- Sex with Kings: 500 Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revenge by Eleanor Herman
- A Little Tour in France by Henry James
What are you reading this week? Please share in the comments!
Just finished a bio on artist Lee Krsner. Dislike The Dalai Lama’s Cat with a passion, so won’t finish it. Just started Ascending Peculiarity, Edward Gorey on Edward Gorey.
Twenty-five years of interviews.
I’ll definitely avoid the cat book, then. How do you like the other two? I LOVE Edward Gorey and find Lee Krasner fascinating.
The Henry James book sounds like it could be a new fave.
I just finished Michael Lewis’s book Boomerang, on the effects of the 2008 economic crash on other countries. I really love his writing.
I’m quite enjoying it so far!
Boomerang sounds interesting. Thanks.
