Original Starting post for this thread:
Threads for critters, gardening, dinner, movies, etc. Does anyone read any more? What are you reading, do you recommend it, and why or why not?

My most recent read is Natasha Trethewey's "Beyond Katrina," a collection of poems and prose about the Mississippi gulf coast. I fell in love with her the first time I met her and heard her read, several years ago. In this work she confronts racism, urban development, and the way in which natural disasters reveal seams in our society. But she does so through observations about individual persons and their experiences. A very good read.

Finally finished Outlander series book 4....took what seemed like forever.

Starting book 5 soon. And when I'm in Bowling Green for two days I'm sure I will get a lot of reading done.

"They are all my Family" by John Riordan, who happens to live not so far from me. It's his memoir about the last days of U.S. involvement in the Vietnam War, and how he managed to get all of the Vietnamese employees from his bank, along with their families, evacuated in time to save their lives. Good reading.

still working on the Outlander series. Book 4. I haven't had much time to read lately, and the few times I did, didn't have the book with me or I'd be almost done by now and on to book 5.

"The Fight to Vote" by Michael Waldman. Fascinating history of the evolution of the electoral process and voting rights in the United States going back to the Constitutional Convention. This big picture history makes the current wave of disenfranchisement attempts seem simultaneously more outrageous and more transient.

Not at all as depressing or preachy as the title might suggest

Doing a marathon of Jonathan Mayberry's Joe Ledger novels, just finished The King Of Plagues earlier this evening. Some folks I respect raved about this series, but I'm having a hard time getting excited about it. His heroes are okay, but I'm rather disappointed in his villains. Thrillers need good villains to be memorable.

I'll probably start re-reading John Ringo's Troy Rising SF series next. Still doesn't have great villains, but he's a LOT funnier. I mean, the first book in the series revolves around an interstellar Maple Syrup War. Goofy as hell.

Yeah, I'm not reading anything serious at the moment. There's something to be said for brain candy.
