Posts since last week's malarkey:

Books finished last week:
- Brutal Youth by Anthony Breznican - A reread and the only book I finished. I liked it even better the second time.
- All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr (for F2F discussion)
- Dear Mrs. Roosevelt: Letters from Children of the Great Depression, ed. by Robert Cohen - This one made my heart hurt; I put it aside after one night's reading and will maybe take the next readings in smaller pieces.
In other news:
You might have noticed I changed my template. I'm still working on it. I'd like to change the header but I'm not certain what exactly I want in a fresh header, so I'm giving that some thought. I've also spent a little time streamlining the sidebar (aka, deleting superfluous stickers and links -- I'll keep removing items till I'm satisfied). The decision to update was a spur-of-the-moment thing, although I've been tired of the hummingbird template for a while. What do you think of it, so far?
