📚 Finished Reading: The First 90 Days, Updated and Expanded by Michael D. Watkins
I liked this Libro.fm audiobook enough that I bought a hardback version, as well. I’ll post more detailed notes after I go through it a second time.
📚 Just caught-up with a couple (back-dated) book completion posts. (All recent ones are on my reading page.)
📚 Finished Reading: The Mysteries by John Kascht, Bill Watterson
Not at all what I was expecting from the return of Bill Watterson (Calvin & Hobbes), but highly appreciated nonetheless. This will be a book I will need to re-read every once in a while, and I expect I’ll notice something new each time.

These Argentina jerseys remind me of my favorite #USMNT jersey of the last couple decades.⚽️
📚💪 Doing my 5k walk fundraiser on my lunch break today, and getting to the library is halfway. Perfect!
📚 Finished Reading: Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia
I’d heard many good things about this book, but I’m afraid it was soured by the narrator we listened to, who did a poor job reading (let alone performing) the book. I thought the horror element was well done, as was the critique of colonialism et. al.
So many people have recommended Mexican Gothic and…it makes me wonder how much the audio performer can ruin a book. 📚
I’m thinking when I start an audiobook and it’s not good, that I should try again in different format.
We made a departure from #PeoplePoweredProvisions today, but made the most of it.
📚 Half-Price Books trip on the way home from church.
📚 Is there something like Calibre ebooks (for ebook management) that isn’t such a hot mess?
Me: “want to listen to our book, like an Ettin?”
(we both wore one earbud.)
🕊️📚 Double-preordering this Advent book from the incredible Shannon Walker Dycus: The Holy in the Night - Herald Press. You should too!
📚 Finished Reading: The Eyre Affair by Jasper Fforde.
Seemed like a solid idea, but just ended up feeling silly. (And not in a good Monty Python way.)
📚 Finished The Far Reaches short stories.
Sci-fi to open the mind.
I recommend the stories by: James S. A. Corey, Ann Leckie, John Scalzi.
Unfortunately only available on Amazon.
