This week’s happenings:
This Tender Land by William Kent Krueger – I’m 75% through with 3 days left on the library loan. This is a Great Depression era Huck Finn that starts out at an Indian Training School in Minnesota. A little slow to start, but it’s got good writing and a good story thus far.
Athlete A on Netflix – Engaging documentary about the US Gymnastics sexual abuse scandal from a few years ago. I’d love to hear more from gymnast Maggie Nichols as she matures – How do you move on from being so unfairly wronged by not only a predator like Larry Nassar but an organization that stole her Olympic aspirations just for reporting the abuse?
How the Light Gets in by Louise Penny – This is part of the much-loved Chief Inspector Gamache series, #9. It’s my first dip into this series, and it’s been a slow start for me: I’m currently at 8% on audiobook and struggling. BUT, with the reading podcast adoration and 4.44 rating on Goodreads, I’m determined to stick this one out.
Cleaning. Dodging mosquitoes to garden. Making early morning park runs. Making soft wraps.
