Having enjoyed Jonny Appleseed, Scarborough, and Little Fish, I'm working my way through more of the Arsenal Pulp Press catalog
Great book about a trans woman in Winnipeg
I blame @RealLifeReading ! Saw this on Goodreads as an update from Sharlene, ordered it from the library and it came in fast. I have A LOT of books going right now and did not need another one but I took a look last night, thinking I'd read a quick chapter...and here I am almost 50 pages in. 😉
Brilliant memoir. Read Daddy Was a Numbers Runner by Louise Meriwether as well if you haven't.
Happy Mother's Day! Bookstore gift card from my husband burned a hole in my pocket right away. Pendant from my daughter and International Rescue Committee donation from my stepkids.
No, REALLY, I AM sad my librarian friends don't have time to read ARCs and give them to me #ImNotDroolingYouAre
My #bookresolutions feels a little heretical but I REALLY have to stop buying books and read what I've got. This picture is of a small number of the three hip-high stacks next to my bed. I'll still patronize my library and make sure I buy book gifts, but....seriously....
I also want to read more Latin American authors and novels by and about people with disabilities. @RealLifeReading
This was fun: I found a friend of mine listed in the acknowledgements of my book.
The author says in the preface that this is the first in depth biography of Burgess because so little material has survived. This is apparent when a whole paragraph is devoted to how great the drains were at Burgess's first boarding school.
So, I'm planning to go see Kate Hennessey speak about her new book about her grandmother Dorothy Day, The World Will Be Saved By Beauty tomorrow. I'm listening to it on Audible and obviously can't have her sign my iPod. And obviously I have to have her sign something so I trekked off to the local Trappist abbey which has a store to find Hold Nothing Back. Found some other books too. I'm not even a little bit Catholic.
