Six books read in July: three fiction, three memoirs. Half of them were read during the 24 in 48 Readathon. Grace Without God and Another Brooklyn were probably my favorites, although Dear Mr. You was pretty great, too.
This month I vegged out and watched a lot more TV than I normally do. I got caught up on Orange Is the New Black, Broadchurch, and Mr. Robot, and started watching Drop Dead Diva and Stranger Things. We’ve also been playing a lot of Pokémon Go as a family (the three of us sharing an account/phone) and started watching the series from the beginning, since it’s all new to C. She’s hooked—Ekans (left) is her favorite. We’ve found a number of lovely parks in the area we didn’t even know existed. All three of us are terrible night owls, so it’s been nice to see places bustling with activity even past a “normal bedtime.”
I’m still reading Dune: House Harkonnen, and I’m about halfway through with A Square Meal: A Culinary History of the Great Depression. I’ve also started to make a habit of opening an audiobook when I’m in the car or grocery shopping; Margaret Atwood’s A Moral Disorder is currently on the playlist.
