snapshot 10.6

Recently finished: The last couple of weeks I've been talking about feeling slumpy. But it wasn't a slump. It was an upper respiratory infection. It finally got me down to the point where I took some time off from work. Feeling so much better now and getting back in the reading groove. So I haven't really finished anything significant, but I'm about 15 minutes away from finishing Eileen by Otessa Moshfegh, which is short-listed for this year's Booker Prize, and it's spectacular. 

 

Currently reading: The French Chef in America. Another cookbook or two. I'm almost done listening to Louise Penny's How the Light Gets In, which may have been a mistake. It's the first one of hers that I read, and it's so incredibly beautiful and wonderful and tells of horrible things that have come before in the series. I will definitely be going back to the beginning of the series and getting my heart broken over and over in such amazing and lovely ways I won't be able to stop. 

 

Up next: I've gotten a chance to read Herman Koch's Dear Mr. M, and I had to grab at that one. And I still haven't started The Inferno, and again today I saw the movie trailer reminding me that the film is opening soon. I need to get on that. Beyond that, I need to see how much I can accomplish this week, bookwise. I'll let you know next Sunday how things go.
