What are you currently reading? 

Now I’m on the next-to-the-last in the Silo pre-quels with Hugh Howey’s Second Shift – Order (Wool #7).  It’s been a long journey, even if I did like the first of the series better.  I am finally starting to get into The End of Your Life Book Club by Will Schwalbe that is our next book club pick, although it’s been slowing going.  Anyone who has read my list during the last month is probably thinking, “Finish it already!”

What did you recently finish reading?

I’m on the last disc of listening to The Bell Jar by Slyvia Plath and so will call it done.  The book is pretty much what I’ve heard, at least as far as evoking emotion in reaction to Esther’s pain, so I can now appreciate what others have claimed it to be.

What do you think you’ll read next? 

We’re supposed to get bad weather, so I may start Tinkers by Paul Harding if the power and the charge on my Kindle go out indefinitely.  If the electricity holds up, I may listen to Snow Child by Paul Harding since I have it checked out from the library.

What are you currently reading?

I’m almost done reading First Shift – Legacy (Wool #6) by Hugh Howey and would’ve been done by now if I’d had more time to read lately.  Lots of driving time has allowed me to start listening to something on my “tbr” list forever, The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath.  However, I am still working on The End of Your Life Book Club which would probably be done by now if I didn’t try to read so many books at once.

What did you recently finish reading?

The audio version of Tina Fey’s Bossypants was perfect for a recent driving trip. I stopped counting how many times I caught myself cracking up by myself in the car.  She’s a great comic writer, and now I respect her so much more as a storyteller and social commentator.

What do you think you’ll read next?

It will finally be time to start Second Shift Wool #7 by Hugh Howey when I finish First Shift of the three pre-quels of his Silo series.
