I’m still reading Such a Fun Age by Kiley Reid and listening to The Mermaid of Black Conch by Monique Roffey, both of which I’m enjoying.
I’ve also started reading Busy@Home by Tony Crabbe, which is a guide on how to survive and thrive during the Covid crisis. Hopefully, I’m a bit late to the party on this one.
For the first time this year, the answer is: nothing. I didn’t complete any books this week. After reading Leaf Storm by Gabriel García Márquez, I was a bit slow to decide what to read next.
My next read will definitely be The Hunting Party by Lucy Foley, which I need to read by mid-July for my book club.
This week’s quotation comes from The Mermaid of Black Conch and expresses the idea that when all else fails, we still have our story:
I am an ol’ man now, and sick sick so I cyan move much, sick so I cyan work, go out to sea, and so I go write my story.Monique Roffey
