KathyWheeler This is one of my favorite books. The weather app says it feels like 113 here today, and I‘d agree with it. I could go for some fall weather. 1mo

I‘ve been sick for the last several weeks and barely able to concentrate enough to read more than a few pages at a time. I‘m finally starting to feel like myself again and this was a wonderful book to get me back into reading. Definitely a pick!

Atlas Shrugged | Ayn Rand
post image

If you saw Atlas, the giant who holds the world on his shoulders, if you saw that he stood, blood running down his chest, his knees buckling, his arms trembling but still trying to hold the world aloft with the last of his strength, and the greater his effort the heavier the world bore down upon his shoulders - What would you tell him?"

I…don't know. What…could he do? What would you tell him?"

To shrug.

Machine: A Novel | Susan Steinberg

Pickpick

The format of the book was sometimes hard to follow. It was written as kind of a stream of consciousness but somehow seemed really familiar, like the mind of a teenage girl which I suppose is what the author was going for. It was a quick read and I mostly enjoyed it.

I love being able to read outside! We had a nice rain yesterday to wash a little of the pollen away and it‘s in the 70s!

Severnmeadows How are you finding it? I re-read it a year or two ago, and was still very struck by it. It had its old-fashioned bits but still seemed very contemporary to me. 5mo
