What are you currently reading?
I made progress on both the books I had just cracked open last week: over halfway through on Miss Peregrin's Home for Peculiar Children
and about 10% on The History of Forgetting: Los Angeles and the Erasure of Memory
, which is definitely going to take me longer (it's only 300 pages, but has small print, plus it's a physical book which means I'm not picking it up as often as I would an ebook).
I also got Ella of All-of-a-Kind Family
from the library the other day and have read about a third of it. I never read this one as a kid, but I'm enjoying it just as much as the earlier books.What did you recently finish reading?
Last week I got Alison Bechdel's Fun Home
at the library. I went to pick up a book I had on hold, and there were some shelves of comics right next to the holds and this grabbed my eye. I really loved it. I've heard of Alison Bechdel and I've heard of Fun Home, but I really had no idea what it was about other than a vague idea that it was about her rocky relationship with her father, which I had always assumed meant he was homophobic. I had no idea he was gay himself.
Today in the mail I got The Middleman: Doomsday Armageddon Apocalypse
, which I had ordered because we finished the show recently. Back when I watched the show the first time, I did watch the panel reading of the finale done at Comic Con or wherever, but I don't even know if I knew there was a comic of it at the time (or I might have known and just not gotten it because it was expensive...this was $25 for an eighty-page comic!) but anyway, I'd totally forgotten the plot of the final episode anyway, so I was eager to read this and refresh my memory. I actually think the show ends just fine on episode twelve, but I like this as well.
I also read Y: The Last Man
volume nine, though did not actually get to the final volume yet, since I keep getting distracted by other things.What do you think you'll read next?
I have three books on Goodreads marked as "currently reading" that I haven't actually started reading yet, so those for sure! They are Alison Bechdel's Are You My Mother?
, the final volume of Y: The Last Man, and Sawtelle: West Los Angeles's Japantown (Images of America: California)
, which I also received from Amazon today.
