Currently reading: 2-20-2017

imag3008_1I haven’t been writing here much, because I haven’t been reading nearly as much as I want to. Real life has been quite hectic recently, which inevitably ends up with a growing mountain of unread library books.

Having said that, I am also in the middle of reading some great books at the moment, so hopefully my dry spell is at an end.

Starry River of the Sky by Grace Lin, which I’m reading with librarian book club because Grace Lin is wonderful. I’m loving how beautiful these books are as objects–the illustrations, the weight of the paper, the whole thing is just lovely.

The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett, which I’m rereading with a couple of friends. I’m only a few chapters in but am already having severe Feelings, because Tiffany is the best and I love her forever the end.

The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin, which so far is promising to be even more complex and fascinating than the first book!

I’m also skimming through Susan Cooper’s biography of John Langstaff, which I’ve read before, for Reasons.

My name is Maureen. I currently work as a library assistant in a public library in the Indianapolis area, and also just so happen to be a voracious reader. I frequently end up under a cat.

I have way way wayyyyy too many unread library books. It’s less than I have sometimes had in the past, but apparently libraries and reading schedules don’t grade on a curve. :p I also have a free month of Marvel Unlimited that I want to take full advantage of, plus a review copy of a nonfiction book coming in the mail, plus an assigned podcast read I haven’t started. Ahhhhh it is too many things (but a good problem to have, I guess).
