It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Well, pretty much the same stuff I was reading last week!

I'm close to finishing The Cemetery of Swallows, and pushing my way through The Conservationist, and listening to Orange is the New Black. All of these books I'm loving more as I turn the pages. The Conservationist is the most challenging by far but it's a fascinating read.

 I do think I need something a little snappier just to keep my attention focused, so I started a short little galley I got from an Other Press sales rep, A Distant Father, by Antonio Skarmeta. Skarmeta wrote Il Postino, which was made into a movie way back when. I like it. It's very short; the galley is M&M tiny but it's packing a punch, about a father who abandons his family and has some kind of secret. I like it!
