Well, it was a nice breath of fresh air, but tomorrow kicks off the new semester. I’m loaded up with another research design course, philosophies of research, and a dash of personnel prep. I’m hoping to be around and visiting and reading as much as possible, but if I fall off the face of the Earth again…know I had the best intentions.
After hearing about the audiobooks offered by Hoopla but realizing that none of my libraries had audio as an option, I signed up for a card through a nearby system. WISE DECISION, SELF. So many great books with no holds all at my grabby little fingertips! I ended up downloading and listening to Teddy Wayne’s Loner after noticing it was on the Tournament of Books longlist. It didn’t make the cut for the shortlist, and I didn’t love the novel, but it was definitely not the book I expected going in. As for right now, I’m still working my way through Adichie’s Purple Hibiscus and I just picked up Reign of Error by Diane Ravitch. The latter is actually for one of my classes, but since I’ve read Ravitch’s books for “fun” in the past (and the topic of this one is oh so timely), it gets a spot here.
