Day 4 #riotgrams - current read
1) 3-4 lately, but sometimes 5-6
2) long if they're good! Takes longer to end that way :)
3) ask everyone I know for reading recs
5) not a big fantasy fan but have found some I like. So I guess I'll read any genre!
6) whatever I can grab in a hurry as I dash out the door
7) 1,000+ in print and a few hundred in e-book
8) less, honestly. Library is better way to go--better for communities and the environment
9) I love bourbon 😄
How weird is my life? So weird that I spent an hour chatting with Dan Brown about his latest, which is probably his best since the Da Vinci Code. Here's our interview!
I interviewed Annalee Newitz about AUTONOMOUS for the Chicago Review of Books. She's so smart and awesome! (And so is the book!)
I interviewed the editors of ARTS OF LIVING ON A DAMAGED PLANET, a gorgeous and provocative collection of writing about humanity's relationships with the natural world in the era of climate change. Please check it out! It's one of the best collections I've read so far this year.
This book got in my head and made for some CRAZY dreams. It's so beautiful, but visceral and occasionally really unsettling. Probably the best post-apocalyptic novel I've read in a year.
Am only 50 pages in and have already teared up twice. PMS-y? Yes. But a great book? YES. YES. YES.
New bookshelves installed! Took all weekend but was worth it. 😁😁
Wanted to get some reading done tonight, but my chair is occupied now and probably forever #catsoflitsy
This is gonna be polarizing, for sure! But it made me think of things I hadn't really thought before. A review to come!
Ahhh you guys this book is so, so good. Smart, funny, sometimes painful, always thought-provoking. Bonus: I got to interview Roxane Gay for the Chicago Review of Books! Please check it out: she's just as smart in person!
So my day off is going well...😄
I don't know about you guys, but this morning I'm nursing a sugar and excitement hangover. What better to soothe the head, heart, and soul than Moroccan-spiced coffee and a Ghali novel. #seasonsreadings2016 #thedayafter
A gem of a collection. Moody, engaging, and roiling in mystery. I wrote a more in-depth review over at The Chicago Review of Books if you're interested: https://chireviewofbooks.com/2016/12/21/in-which-17-writers-bring-edward-hoppers...
Check out this fun slideshow I made of famous authors' personal libraries!! https://www.facebook.com/BookBub/posts/1167653236658266
(This is a pic of Eudora Welty's private library btw. So pretty!!!)
Sweet find in a dusty used bookstore. My existential crisis is finally over! 😂
