Books finished since last Malarkey:
- Sydney Bridge Upside Down by David Ballantyne
- Born a Crime by Trevor Noah
I did end up setting aside Ava's Man by Rick Bragg in favor of Born a Crime and that was a good decision. Born a Crime grabbed me immediately and I could hardly stand to put it down. It is utterly fascinating, the memory of how Noah fit into his home in South Africa, which was divided by race. Sydney Bridge Upside Down turned out to be a lot darker than I anticipated. What begins as a story that appears to be about boys being boys takes a remarkably sinister turn when you find out that the main character has a much more wicked streak than you can credit to typical childhood disobedience.
- The View from Flyover Country: Essays by Sarah Kendzior (available in ebook only)
- It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis
I've also just begun a nonfiction title but I'm only a few pages in and don't want to mention it till I'm sure it's going to stick.
Last week's posts:
Last week started out fine and then I just wasn't feeling it, so I said to myself something on the order of "Screw it. I'll get back to the blog when I feel like it," and actually was totally off the computer at least one day, maybe two.
In other news:
I think we're probably the last people I know to get around to putting up outdoor lights (Huzzybuns and Kiddo) and a tree (not yet decorated). I haven't changed out the mantel, yet; it's still decked out in the fall/Thanksgiving spirit, but I'll be working on that, today. The books above were set up on a table in our foyer, the first place to show signs that Christmas is coming. I'm kind of crazy about that Santa, who has had the place of honor on that table for about 3 years, now.
