I love a good library book sale!!!
Knocking out three different tasks on reading challenges with this one. Superbly written. Obviously, I love Coates‘ prose. More than that though, I love his honesty about the things he has written in the past and the fact that he does not have it all figured out.
I cannot stop reading this book. Katy Tur does a great job of giving us an inside look at this insane election. She also does a great job of showing the importance of journalism in a free society.
Reading David McCullough. Listening to John Coltrane on vinyl. Drinking hot chocolate from my Mark Twain mug. All part of my best life now.
Book mail makes me happy!! About to dive into this one.
I love when great literature inspires great music. This great album from Lucero's lead singer Ben Nichols is inspired by McCarthy's Blood Meridian. Both are phenomenal.
Ida B. Wells is underrated and overlooked by many in the study of American History. She is one of my favorites and I'm looking forward to getting this biography started. She's the best!!!
The Oh Hellos put out this album inspired by the Screwtape Letters. It is told from the perspective of the human being tempted by Wormwood. Great tribute to Mr. Clive Staples Lewis. Brilliant concept. Perfect execution. Beautiful album.
Book mail is the best mail!!!
Saga, Volume 6 was every bit as wonderful as volumes 1-5. This series is absolutely one of my favorite things to read. Great characters. Great story. Great visuals. It does everything I want a comic to do and then some. It's a home run every time.
Stopped in Oxford, MS so of course I had to stop at Square Books. I could have stayed forever and spent all the monies!!!
"The one thing that we yearn for in our living days, that makes us sigh and groan and undergo sweet nauseas of all kinds, is the remembrance of some lost bliss that was probably experienced in the womb and can only be reproduced (though we hate to admit it) in death." ~Jack Kerouac, On the Road
A one volume history of Ancient Rome is a difficult task. So far Mary Beard's work is tremendous.
