I haven’t done a what-up post in awhile and thought, why not? I certainly would rather do this then actually do the vacuuming (like I just texted to my husband when he asked me what’s on today’s agenda?)
I am reading: The Orphan Master’s Son by Adam Johnson. I am really enjoying it. If ‘enjoying’ is the right word since it does describe the assumed horrific situations of being a citizen of North Korea. It does so with the kind of humor that really appeals to me. Satire, anyone?
and I’m listening to METAtropolis compiled by John Scalzi. I’ve only listened to the first story but I was impressed with the world building even if the ending felt abrupt and deflated. This was a freebie from Audible to thank me for being a good customer. I know some people find audible to be expensive but I think I’m getting my money’s worth. I usually use my credit on the LOOOoonnnnnggest books (many hours long) so when/if I do buy something, I don’t mind the cost.
I have Infinite Jest both audio and ebook versions ready to go.
I’m thinking that I should read a Nonfiction book soon.
On Tuesday, I will have a review post of questions I asked fellow readalongers of Songs for the Missing by Stewart O’Nan. I can’t wait to read Last Night at the Lobster next. Oh, that reminds me… I read Songs for the Missing for the What’s in a Name Challenge 6 and I need to update the post to say so.
Eventually, I will review Where’d You Go, Bernadette? by Maria Semple. I laughed out loud a lot.
I made ricotta cookies instead of pie this week.
I am spending most of my days on the boat, recovering from the boat and then packing to go back to the boat.
And prepping for school. I will take two classes this fall: Foundations of Instructional Technology and Information Access and the Internet. Whoop! I think I’m finally registered. (With that, can you hear the frustrations of trying to get this back-to-school thing figured out!?!)
That’s about it.
Hope all is well with you! What are YOU reading?
