The scene: // my living room
Eating: // saltine crackers while waiting for my chili to warm up.
Listening to: // Marsha Ambrosius
Celebrating: // the fact that Thanksgiving break is here! It actually started last Wednesday. I am so happy. Now I can dive into all the books I’ve been ignoring.
Fortunately, the Milk by Neil Gaiman
Chew Vol. 6 Space Cakes by John Layman
You and Your Anxious Child by Anne Marie Albano
Why Teach? In Defense of a Real Education by Mark Edmundson (essays)
To the End of June: The Intimate Life of American Foster Care by Cris Beam (Publishers Weekly deemed it one of the best books published this year.)
Did not finish: // The Whatnot by Stefan Bachman
Up next: // who knows? I am eyeing The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker, which I never did get a chance to start reading the last time I had it. I need a good fiction read to start on. Other choices include:
Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple
Ketchup Clouds by Annabel Pitcher
The Golden Day by Ursula Dubosarsky
Flora & Ulysses by Kate DiCamillo
All five books are also on Publishers Weekly Best of 2013 list.
Now I’m off to: // relax and dive into a book. What are you up to?
