More like, “It’s Monday and I’d still like pie for breakfast.” Our Thanksgiving was very low-key and relaxing, with pajamas and movies and a little time for reading, too. Definitely not a holiday I can complain about. And great to have before, what I can only assume will be, the upcoming whirlwind of December.
I’m still working on Ravensbruck, but ended up setting aside Beauty Is a Wound again last week. I think it was a book I wanted to like more than I actually enjoyed reading—it was just very difficult for me to feel engrossed. I ended up going with my book club pick for the month, James Baldwin’s The Fire Next Time. A quick but really incredible read, which was just what I needed. And now I’m wrapping up Nonfiction November with Being Mortal by Atul Gawande.
