My reading week

The Color Purple - Alice Walker The Jungle - Upton Sinclair, Earl Lee, Kathleen DeGrave Career of Evil - Robert Galbraith Packing for Mars: The Curious Science of Life in the Void By Mary Roach(A)/Sandra Burr(N) [Audiobook] - -Author- Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End - Atul Gawande The Diary of  a Teenage Girl, Revised Edition: An Account in Words and Pictures - Phoebe Gloeckner

This week I finished one book, The Color Purple by Alice Walker. I found the book to be hard to read. Not so much because of the subject matter but because of the way the book was written. I found myself having to read parts of it out loud in order to “hear” the characters talking, especially where Cecie is the narrator. I now have the movie version queued up on Netflix.

 

After finishing that, I also finished reading the diary of a Teenage girl which I can’t say I enjoyed but I was a big fan of the illustrations. For much of the book I felt like shaking Minnie and screaming in her face because she annoyed me so much, although to be honest, the adults in her life were total sleaze bags so it is not surprising how fucking awful Minnie was. 

 

Now I made the mistake of starting four books at once. I started The Jungle, but immediately realized I needed a more modern book to balance things out and I stared Career of Evil Then on my Kindle I started Packing for Mars, only to immediately get informed that the electronic hold I had on Being Mortal came in so I downloaded and started reading that. So in the space of like a day I had four books going.

 

I think that next week I’ll be on vacation, and aside from cleaning I’m going to be doing a lot of reading.
