Amanda is out traveling the world this week, going to international literary festivals and such, so I’m taking over Inbox/Outbox duties. Let’s get to it!
Inbox (books acquired):
Eleven Hours, by Pamela Erens. I have a three-year-old son, and I’m reading all the books about motherhood these days. The novels and memoirs, I mean, not the how-to books. This is a novel about a woman going through childbirth, and gimme more of the same please.
Outbox (books finished):
Laura, by Vera Caspary. I read this for my mystery book group. In fact, I chose it for my mystery book group. I’ve chosen a series of mid-century noirish mystery novels by women for the group (including books by Dorothy Hughes and Margaret Millar) and have loved them all. This one is short, stylish, fascinating, and fun.
In the Queue: (what I’m reading next):
Lab Girl, by Hope Jahren. I’ve heard SO many good things about this one. A memoir of a woman in science? Yes, please.
That’s all for me — what about you?
