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
Portrait of Henry James by John Singer Sargent (1894)

I should probably rename this regular feature, as it often spotlights artists, musicians, and other creative-types. Until I decide on a new one (suggestions welcome!), however, Book Nerd Links it shall remain.
