I’ve been having trouble with longer fiction novels of late. Being elbow deep in study definitely affects that, as I went through quite a bit non-fiction this week. I do really love reading old newspapers and archives, but I am missing fiction! I combed through two memoirs, this week, though. Both are from the Korean War.
I am really enjoying Days Without End on Audiobook. And Humankind, which is so darn optimistic and upbeat. I totally recommend it given what I’ve listened to so far. Bregman reframes so many moments and shows a different take on the narrative that makes headlines. It’s very hopeful.
Little Free Library by Naomi Kritzer
If you can bring me more such books, I will leave you every scrap of gold I can find.
Oh my goodness, I really liked this one. A little free library becomes a way to correspond with a mysterious, grateful seeker of books. J’adore!
3 a.m. Blues by Joseph Fulkerson
doing the backstroke in the ocean of other’s opinions, navigating the minefield of could’ve and should’ve
This was quite a good collection of poetry, I only wish it were longer!
When Two Swordsmen Meet by Ellen Kushner
It’s a beautiful fight. They each want the other to win. Not so much duel as duet.
Ooooh, this was goooood. Something very lyrical and fanciful about this one. I definitely recommend it. Available here.
What’s everyone reading this week? 🙂
