It's Monday! What Are You Reading?
I've had a busy reading week. I'm mere pages away from finishing Ludmila Ulitskaya's short story collection Sonechka, and I finished three books for the Europa Challenge- Ian Holding's Of Beasts and Beings, set in Zimbabwe as a white teacher is preparing to leave the country, alternating with the story of an unnamed man who has been taken captive by other men and used for their ends- and Flavia Company's The Island of Last Truth, about a man who was stranded on a desert island for years and has returned. I also finished Arctic Summer, early in the week. And I decided to DNF Vestments for now. If it's sitting on my nightstand I don't want to pick it up for a week or longer, I'm probably not interested in it for now, and many other books await.
I'm still reading Bury Me Standing but I got hurt a week ago and haven't been to the gym for a while so that one's sort of on hold while I recover.
And I'm looking for my next recent book to read. I have my eye on Shame and the Captives by Thomas Keneallly. We'll see!
