Gosh, is it another month already? I think I lost April in my packing boxes and painting binges.
So, as it is the first Thursday of the month, its time to check in on our reading. My reading has fallen off considerably (see opening sentence), which is bad for both my mental health and my competitive streak. I do a reading challenge every year and keep track of it on Goodreads, and every time I log in, Goodreads lets me know how many books behind I am. God, Goodreads, get off my case! Anyway, book club this month was White Teeth by Zadie Smith, a novel I’ve been meaning to get around to for forever. My copy of it came in late so I won’t be done by the time the club meets, but what an amazing novel. Ever just open a book up and read a couple of lines and totally just fall in love with the style, and then maybe the author a little? That was me with White Teeth. Gorgeous prose – I’m sorry I took so long to check it out.
