It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I'm reading too many darn books. Seriously. I am losing track, and what makes it worse is that I can barely find time to read.

On the "reading now" pile are:

The Sellout, by Paul Beatty,
The Patriots, by Sana Krasikov,
Flora and Ulysses, by Kate DiCamillo,
The Empire of the Summer Moon, by S.G. Gwynne, and
Hag-Seed, by Margaret Atwood.

This is too many books. So I have to finish something, preferably several somethings, but who knows when I'll have the time.
I'm loving Hag-Seed, the latest in the Hogarth Shakespeare series and written by one of my favorites. It's based on "The Tempest" which I have not read. But I'm glad it's not dystopian anyway.

The only thing I'm reading consistently is The Empire of the Summer Moon, a chapter a night, and it's unputdownable. It's history that reads like a thriller. I'll admit I'm not getting every detail- there is a lot of military history and battle stuff that I tend to gloss over- but I'm loving it anyway.

What are you reading? I hope you're having better luck with stick-to-itiveness than I am!
