Currently reading (listening to): Going Postal by Terry Pratchett. I read this years ago, and it is often cited by people as one of their favourite Pratchett books, so I thought I’d give it a go again.
Last book finished: Becoming by Michelle Obama. I think history is going to treat the Obamas very well. I listened to the audio book, which Michelle narrates herself, and it really adds to the experience of following her story from her early years into Chicago and all the way to the White House. I found it moving and compelling, and made me nostalgic for a time when there was a thoughtful, well-read, competent president in the White House.
On the pile: How Long ’til Black Future Month? by N. K. Jemisin. I’ve read most of Hugo-winning Jemisin’s books, and I think she’s a unique and stellar writer. It’s wonderful that a woman of colour has gotten such success and recognition in a genre dominate by white dudes for so long. How Long ’til Black Future Month is a collection of her short stories, and I’m looking forward to diving in.
How about you? Currently reading? Last one read? On the pile? Drop me a note and let me know.
