Reading Radar


I’m apparently hanging out in the airport all day today. I’m trying to fly from Seattle to NYC but my flight has been delayed 3 hours so far and I’m not confident about it even then. It sucks, yes, but at least I’m some place warm and I have a great reader friend here with me. Earlier today we were comparing TBR lists and I realized just how many books I have on my kindle from the library — so much reading to do! Here’s a brief rundown of what I’m looking forward to tackling:

  1. Circe: My book club is discussing this on the 30th and I understand it’s a long read, so this one is up first. Everyone who’s read it raves about it making my expectations pretty high.
  2. A Burst of Light and Other Essays by Audre Lorde. I went to an all-women’s college and somehow never read anything by Lorde. Trying to rectify this at long last.
  3. Virgil Wander: Leif Enger’s first novel, Peace Like a River, was one of my favorites, and I’m excited to read his newest.
  4. Darius the Great is Not Okay: I’ve been on the library waiting list for this one FOREVER. I don’t even remember what prompted me to want to read it but it looks really good. It was on a ton of Best Of lists for 2018.

I’m also listening to Michelle Obama’s Becoming on audio, and I’m anxious to get back to that. I have learned though that I can’t listen to audiobooks on the plane because I inevitably fall asleep and then have to re-listen to it all to figure out where I left off. Guess I’ll have to wait until I’m someplace I can drive and listen (to date I have never fallen asleep doing that).
