I’m glad I am not doing an August recap of my reading because it was pathetic to say the least. I mentioned a few times about going through some “house projects” over the summer. The real scoop is we put our home on the market back in July, found a house we love, lost that house (and now hate it-not really), got a few offers on ours and now are scrambling to find something. All the while keeping our home clean and tidy for ongoing showings with jobs, kids and pets to juggle. So reading time hasn’t been as ample as I would like and with all that is going on I am struggling to focus. I did a marathon of the first season on Masters of Sex, which was excellent and can’t wait to start season 2. Anyone watch it?
I picked up a couple of short story collections also at the library this week: The State We’re In by Ann Beattie, In the Country by Mia Alvar and Lovers on All Saints’ Day by Juan Gabriel Vásquez. We’ll see if any stick.
