More reading! I’m in some sort of weird denial about the fact that the next round-up of books will probably be posted once Baby Sister is here. Related/unrelated: I need to find more to read.
Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi
When the English Fall by David Williams
Who is Rich by Matthew Klam
The Wanderers by Meg Howrey
Over the weekend, I returned one book to the library, checked out a few more, and honestly, I don’t know how much reading I have left in me before Baby Sister arrives. On the other hand, at that point I will be reuniting with the Kindle for iPhone app and maybe I’ll be doing more reading in my up-at-night sleep-deprived state than I am right now.
It’s hard to tell.
