• What are you reading?

A Thousand Small Sanities: The Moral Adventure of Liberalism, by Adam Gopnik, one of the many non-fiction books I have checked out from the library. All my due dates have been changed to April 20, except for the two interlibrary loans. I don't know how those are going to work.

• What did you recently finish reading?

The Book Woman of Troublesome Creek, by Kim Michele Richardson. Such a great title! And such interesting material: the Blue People of Kentucky, and the Pack Horse Library Project of the WPA. But the characters were evil oppressors (rapists and murderers, who stank, and wanted to send everyone different to Hell, and had rotting teeth, and, just in case you weren't sure they were evil, were gratuitously cruel to animals) or saintly victims whose morals seem to have been transplanted from the 21st century. The worst book I've read in a long time.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

It should be Gods Monsters and the Lucky Peach, by Kelly Robson, and A Taste of Honey, by Kai Ashante Wilson, though I don't know when or how SF book group is going to happen.

• What are you watching?

Fast Color, recommended by Sovay.
