Maybe it’s just me, but it feels like this past week absolutely flew by. The real estate game went from zero to sixty after we found a house we’re more than a little in love with. Now we’re getting things in place to list our house, which means a bunch of closet de-cluttering (it’s hard to make 100 year old closets look big), random Craigslist selling, and fixes we’ve been meaning to tackle since we moved in. My brain is being pulled in a thousand directions, but I keep trying to settle it down with a book or two.
Timothy Snyder’s Black Earth is pretty incredible, but it’s also super dense and very long, so you’ll likely be seeing it here for a few more weeks. I’m also reading A Hanging at Cinder Bottom by Glenn Taylor, which is for an upcoming book club meeting, and Give Us the Ballot by Ari Berman. The library holds haven’t been slowing down, so here’s hoping I can keep working my way through.
