Lately, From The Library


I’ve got a big stack to tell you about today, and not much time. I've stumbled upon the sweetest substitute teaching job there ever was, so I have to leave home before 7 am. It's totally worth it, though.

I just finished I Wear The Black Hat by Chuck Klosterman. It was good. It made me laugh a lot. I went with my brother and sister-in-law to hear him read from the book when he came to the Boulder Book Store in July. We got a picture.


Cooked has been on my holds list for months and suddenly showed up ready for pick-up yesterday! I’m excited to dive into it. I really appreciate Michael Pollan and the way he does his work.

The Telling Room and Tomorrow There Will Be Apricots are two that I came across on summer reading lists somewhere (The Atlantic? The New Yorker?), so I don’t know much about them yet. Just that someone with a certain amount of authority thought they were worth mentioning.

I was looking for a specific poem from Nikki Giovanni’s Bicycles, and spotted the Wendell Berry on the shelf above it. I figured I could bring them both home and dabble. Poetry mostly evades me, but sometimes it gets me in my feelings.

What are you reading lately?
