reading wednesday

My reading brain seems to be coming out of lockdown. I'm reading The Breath of the Sun by Isaac Fellman for SF book group. I managed to read This is how you lose the time war by Amal El-Mohtar and Max Gladstone for last month's SF book group. One nice thing about having book group online is that someone I really like who has moved away has been joining us, and both my kids, who are not in the book group but loved This is how you lose joined us last month.

Next I will read The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben for Tawanda book group. I was thinking of choosing The Overstory Richard Powers for my month, but it isn't out in paperback! It would go so well with this book and with Braiding Sweetgrass, which I chose last year.

Movies I watched from the library in the time of coronavirus:

The Sisters Brothers
The Milagro Beanfield War
The Muppets
Jumnaji: the Next Level
Jojo Rabbit
Queen & Slim
The Chi, season 1
If Beale Street Could Talk

I watched things on Kanopy and Netflix too, but I don't know how to see my history there.
