What I’m reading, and what I’m looking forward to reading: a very partial list.
I’ve only recently discovered the magic that is an inter-library loan system. Here I have two long-since out-of-print novels by Lord Dunsany, the Anglo-Irish fantasist who has influenced the likes of Neil Gaiman and H.P. Lovecraft. Funny how someone felt the need to cross out his title (repeatedly; and these are books from two separate libraries, too). Irish nationalists hiding in libraries all over Boston!
For Love of Animals, as previously discussed—I’m hoping my mom (a devout Catholic, in case I hadn’t mentioned that already) and I can read it at the same time and I can include some of her impressions in my book appreciation post.
And while we’re on the topic of Christianity + activism, here’s a book my sister gave her, which I’m also very interested to read:
I met Renée Rosen at the Midwest Literary Festival all the way back in 2007. This is going to be a juicy read!
Humans of New York, a gift from my literary agency. Beautiful book, beautiful photographs.
No longer timely, I know (you can tell how long I’ve been intending to post this), but this Christmas card from Jen made me laugh out loud!
