What I’m Reading/Watching
Reading: I finished both Someone to Romance (Mary Balogh; ARC) and The Left-Handed Booksellers of London (Garth Nix; ARC), which is really cool and reminded me a little of Susan Cooper’s Dark is Rising series, but for YA readers. I also reread Seeing Darkness, because I owe it a review and forgot to write out my notes when I read it the first time. And I’m well past the halfway point in both An Extraordinary Union (Alyssa Cole) and Poirot Investigates (Agatha Christie.)
Audiobooks: I’m almost finished with The Secret of Chimneys (Agatha Christie, expertly read by Hugh Fraser.) Podcasts: Harry Potter and the Sacred Text and Imaginary Worlds, with a couple of 99% Invisible and Twenty Thousand Hertz episodes thrown in.
Watching: We have been watching a series on the Smithsonian channel called Aerial America, which has given us at least a virtual feeling of traveling. The aerial cinematography is often breathtaking, but the narration is a bit overblown. Most of the episodes focus on a single state; we’re much happier when they avoid the cities and focus on the landscape. With both of us working hard this past week, it has been restful to watch a show that doesn’t require much emotional investment!
