Happy Thanksgiving! The turkey finished cooking in the wee hours of the morning, the dressing was done yesterday, the sides won’t be cooked until later on today, so I have free time to read! I know what I’m thankful for. I have four days of no school bliss ahead of me and I’ve been eyeing my shelves.
Right now I’m currently in the middle of The Mighty Miss Malone by Christopher Paul Curtis. It’s a sequel of sorts of Curtis’s earlier book, Bud, Not Buddy which I read with my son and loved so much. Other books in my stack this weekend include:
- The Illumination by Kevin Brockmeier (e-book)
- Delicate Edible Birds by Lauren Groff
- The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka (re-read)
- The Madonnas of Echo Park by Brando Skyhorse (re-read)
- Ghetto Cowboy by G. Neri
- Nacropolis by Jeet Thayil
- The Lost City of Z by David Grann (e-book and in print)
- House of Stone: A Memoir of Home, Family, and a Lost Middle East by Anthony Shadid
- The Peculiar by Stefan Bachmann
There’s no way that I can read this many books in four days but it’s nice to have some variety. They all look so good but I can finish reading two of them, I’ll be happy. I can’t wait to curl up in bed with a book.
What are you reading this Thanksgiving weekend?
