Many of you have been cheering on Fall for the past few weeks, which had me feeling a little left out here in Virginia. But it looks like Fall is finally here, and bringing with it days and days of rain. The weather is perfect for cuddling up with a book, but not so perfect for house hunting…which is what we’re doing. After a series of unfortunate events, we’re back at square one—our house is back on the market and we’re looking for something else. It was all just a little too easy that first time around, huh?
I did manage to squeeze in some reading, though, mostly while waiting for people to poke around the house over the last few days. I’m still working my way through Bats of the Republic, which is a bit of a chunkster, but quite enjoyable and incredibly unique. And after a whirlwind read of $2.00 a Day by Kathryn J. Edin and Luke Shaefer, I’m getting started on Anthony Marra’s new story collection, The Tsar of Love and Techno.
