What are you currently reading? I confess that I didn’tget much reading done last week, so I’m still listening to the audiobook of An Unkindness of Ghosts, Rivers Solomon. This book is rather depressing, and it’s interesting BUT the story jumps around too much and it’s taking what seems like an unreasonable amount of time to get to the climax. So I’m a little over it … but not enough to quit.
