It’s Monday, January 25th. What Are You Reading?

and again democracy in black

Sticks arm out from mountain of snow and waves.

Like pretty much all of the East Coast, we’ve been trapped at home since Friday, which has been…interesting? Let me just echo Kerry’s thoughts on the snowy weekend. Though I desperately wanted to spend more of my time reading, I’ve been so easily distracted lately. Between all the little (and a few big) decisions we’re making for the house, anxious feelings over grad school acceptance, and the test prep work I have due today and next week, my brain is all over the place. I’ve been either hunkered down trying to block out everything and work or mindlessly browsing the internet with very little dedicated reading time in between.

It doesn’t help that most of the reading I am doing is good, but not great. It just feels like a classic reading slump. I finished Gold Fame Citrus last night and loved the writing, but was a little let down by the story. Now I’m reading And Again by Jessica Chiarella and Democracy in Black by Eddie S. Glaude Jr. After that? I have no idea. My mood is guiding me to some strange places lately, though I do hope to knock out at least a few more from the Tournament of Books Short List.

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?
