Well this has been another crazy weekend. Glad to have the extra day off in there, but the lack of labor was not in the cards. I didn’t get much reading in either but did start The Martian by Andy Weir. At the library I host a book group and we took the summer off. We are kicking it back into gear this month with The Martian just before the movie comes out. I am a little annoyed because I am picturing Matt Damon while reading, which isn’t a bad thing but I like to create my own visuals.
I finished Did You Ever Have Family by Bill Clegg and it was draining. I can’t say that I enjoyed it because of the subject matter but the writing was beautiful. It will be one of those books difficult to review and say to people “read this”. It releases today and my review will come soon.
