This has been a pretty uneventful week. In fact, yesterday I took these pictures of the family specifically because I had nothing new for the blog. 🤪 Of course, the first is of M and me. He actually sat by me of his own accord. I don’t recall him ever doing that in the past. (I met him when he was 5, and he was a little skeptical of the stepmom thing.) The second picture is Aaron and D, followed by a picture of IL.
I did get a lot of audiobook listening in last week, as well as more than usual reading. (I decided it’s not “cheating” to use some of the baby’s nap-time for reading. He takes two naps, so I can always do some cleaning during the other nap.)
Completed last week
Just The Dark Fantastic (shown above) from the library.

It looks like you are listening to some very interesting and worthwhile books. I read Oliver Twist for the first time myself wishing the last couple of years and I thought that it was fantastic.
Hi Brian! I enjoyed Oliver Twist quite a bit, though I can’t say it was my favorite Dickens. I’d have to think about what was, though. lol. Perhaps Hard Times? Great Expectations? I really should read all of his books someday.
The New Jim Crow made me want to cry, but it was definitely an important book for me to read!
I’ve only made it through the introduction so far, but I know it’s an important book which pretty much started a movement in the way mass incarceration is viewed.
I see that George Takei graphic novel making the rounds on other blogs too. Was it good?
It was fantastic, if you like graphic fiction. Takes a very short time to read, regardless, so it’s worth the effort. 🙂
