I am officially full of nog. Nogged out. It was a lovely holiday, though, and check out my book haul!
My 2016 stack now includes the following:
The Secret Wisdom of the Earth by Christopher Scotton
The Bookshop Book by Jen Campbell
The Dorito Effect by Mark Schatzker
Kitchens of the Great Midwest by J. Ryan Stradal
Thank you to all the Santas in my life!
As promised, I read just one book last week – The Wonder Garden by Lauren Acampora. It ended up being an interesting-but-not-too-taxing read, and my review is forthcoming. I also posted a review of Kent Haruf’s Our Souls At Night. This week I plan to post my “Best of 2015” list and a recap of my progress on my 2015 Diversity Bingo Challenge (which I am losing).
Speaking of diversity, I plan to finish one more book before the year ends: Ghettoside by Jill Leovy. This piece of narrative nonfiction has been discussed as an interesting pairing with Between the World and Me by Ta’Nehisi Coates. I’ve started it, and it’s really good so far.
I hope you all are recuperating nicely from your various celebrations. I’m getting excited for the reading year ahead.
