I’m finally getting to this post at night, so it’s been hectic in my neck of the woods. A good hectic.
Realization has set in that I’m not going to get to all of the books I want to read before 2015 comes to a close. And I’m ok with it. A tad bit sad to return some of the books I won’t get to but will enjoy the ones I have.
I’m still listening to Being Mortal by Atul Gawande and loving it. Working with seniors at the library has given me such a great reference point. Also having a few family members in the 80+ club has been such a roller coaster of emotions these past few years and this book is hitting close to home. I guess saying I am loving it is not quite the right word but I’m feeling like Gawande is touching upon an issue many don’t talk about. I have much to say on this topic!!
I just started Aquarium by David Vann after being intrigued by the review on Kirkus. I can’t really say if I’m enjoying it, for the language is different and the story feels like something big is going to happen. I’m feeling a sense of dread while reading it and not sure why.
