Good morning, friends. I had hoped we'd be well on our way to Florida today, but illness and winter storm Helena forced a change of plans. As the same flu-like bug I'm recovering from struck Twin B and the weather forecast took an ominous turn, we made the decision to delay. So here is one more weekly update from the Great White North...
Finished this week//
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
I finished this wonderful debut novel last night... and now that we're here for another day or two, I might even write a review. Gyasi is an author to watch!
Set aside for now//
LaRose by Louise ErdrichI have listened to nearly 40% of this audiobook. The author's narration is excellent and the story is good... but I'm just not listening enough and progress is too slow. This needs to be a read/listen combination. I put the ebook on hold at two libraries and will pick up where I left off when it becomes available, or when I can walk and listen again in Florida... whichever comes first.
The Unwinding: An Inner History of the New America by George PackerThis book sounds interesting, relevant, and timely. I downloaded the audio version from my library after putting LaRose aside and am happy to report that it is instantly engaging. Rachel at Hibernator's Library is hosting a January/February read-along. Click here for her intro post.
I'll probably start another novel today, too.
The week ahead//
Plans are uncertain now. As soon as our daughter is feeling better, we'll head south.
How was your week? What are you reading?
