Quick Update



I'm still here!

I've been doing a lot of other things: knitting, cross stitching, working, chauffeuring the kid around, watching Jane the Virgin. Even reading. But no blogging.

I have listened to Lincoln in the Bardo by George Saunders. What an experience! I recommend the audiobook version. There are 166 narrators. It's very well done. I'll be back on the blog with a review of that one I promise.

I also listened to All Our Wrong Todays and did not feel the same enthusiasm. I had some issues with it- issues involving the female characters.

Right now, I'm reading What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi. It's good, but takes some time to get into.

Not a very exciting update, but it's all I got. I hope you're all reading good stuff!

  3. I pitched Bardo to my book club for this year's list and it was chosen. 166 narrators in the audio book??? That is so crazy.

  4. That cross-stitching is pretty swell!

    I ALSO had issues with the female characters in All Our Wrong Todays. Overall I liked but yeah, there were issues.

  5. What what WHAT, I love that cross-stitching pattern! Where did you get it, what is that book or magazine that it's in? I love it and I hope it is part of a series and I want to cross-stitch the entire series!

    1. It's Little Red Riding Hood from The Prairie Schooler company. I bought it from 123 Stitch (online store). Not sure if it's a series.

  6. Helen Oyeyemi is such an interesting writer! I enjoyed What Is Not Yours, but I still need to get through some of her backlist.

  7. I'm SO glad you loved Bardo. I cannot recommend it enough, and it makes me so sad when someone doesn't like it. That audio is Emmy-worthy!!

    I love your cross-stitch. I've put mine aside but am so anxious to get back to it. It is so soothing.
