Another read for class. I'm enjoying it so far, although some parts have been really horrible. An engaging read, which can't always be said for school books.

#college #currentread

TieDyeDude Glad you're enjoying it. I gave up early, during whatever happens after chauffeuring Norton... 2y
nanoauthor @GoodForCirculation I think it helps that I'm reading it for a class, so I have somewhere to talk about it - and have to make it through all the bad or weird or boring parts 2y

Today was all about getting the heel on my first pair of knitted socks finished. Plus finding new uses for my stein.

Reading Beloved for a class and it's somehow more gut-wrenching/emotionally draining on this second read. Morrison is incredibly talented.

I was really enjoying this read...until my Kindle broke on me 😔 A new one is on it's way and I usually don't rely on it so much, but I don't like reading ebooks in lit up screens, so can't keep reading atm.

JoScho Oh no! How did it break? 2y
nanoauthor Half the screen just stopped working. Restarting didn't help and Amazon support just offered a discount on a new one 2y

Doing some reading for class, but the library at HC is closed. The makeshift library/study space they've made includes an artificial fire 🔥

Celebrating finishing my first book of the year with some Star Trek and bullet journaling.

The information in this book was interesting - at points. It seemed to veer from the topic of libraries quite frequently. It also felt like it tried to cover too much history in one go without really moving through time clearly.

A holiday tradition in my house is to do as many 1000 piece puzzles as we can by New Year's. This is puzzle number 2 and while the puzzle gets about 2.5/5 stars, HP will always be a beloved classic in our house ❤️⚡️ #puzzle #harrypotter #family
