I’m making a fast visit to the salon while I work on a reading response to Caryl Ferey’s Mapuche. At this point, I almost need to reread the book in order to write the response I began so long ago.
I was in Massachusetts and Maine for a week visiting elderly relatives. While in Maine, I had no internet and so I read. I finished The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane by Katherine Howe, The Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks and Fever by Mary Beth Keane for the course on historical novels I am taking.
Upon return, my book club book was waiting in the mail. I read that in 3 days: Man Alive by Mary Kay Zuravleff, a good book about a suburban family, and one I would probably not have picked up on my own.
Now I am far behind in writing responses, ahead on reading, and thinking mostly about the cooking coming up this week.
Happy Thanksgiving in advance.
