It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Has it almost been a week already since my last post?? I can’t believe it! Well, we got back from our Wisconsin trip and was home just a few days before I drove Nick to Mizzou for the composers festival there this week. Then, when I got back to Kansas City, Fringe Festival started! It’s been a busy weekend and will be a busy week. I’ve seen five Fringe shows already and plan to see/review a lot more through the week! I’ll have a list of all my reviews up here on July 30 with KCMetropolis.org’s all-Fringe issue.
I did finally finish a few books in the last week (although I’ve been awful about posting reviews here—behind again! Working on it). Anthony and I discussed Something Wicked This Way Comes over Wisconsin brats, I finished reading Driven by Donald Driver (Packers WR 1999–2013), and also Our Divided Political Heart by E.J. Dionne, Jr. on audiobook (finally!). Nick and I listened to Peter Heller’s The Dog Stars on audiobook during our trip to Wisconsin. I have a ton of catching up to do on posts, it seems!
A couple of days ago I started reading Helter Skelter by Vincent Bugliosi with Curt Gentry (on my TBR Pile Challenge). Coincidentally, I learned from Allison at The Book Wheel that Gentry just passed away a couple days ago. It’s a really tough book to put down—true crime fascinates me—I’m just sort of wishing I had picked a different time to start this one, what with the Fringe coverage taking up most of my time this week. Oh well, I’m just happy to be down to one book for now.
What are you reading this week?
