Attn Sinny in particular. And April. This seems like a very April book too.
Thought I'd read some poetry since it's April so I started this and I've already cried twice
Currently reading Wintering, and I wish someone had handed it to me in November.
Just finished Among the Hedges, which was a good book, but I'm not sure I enjoyed it
Just finished Yolk, which was incredibly well-written and very hard. Whew! Need a sec after that one.
Finishing up Wilder Girls, which I started for #StartThatBookDay!

Just finished listening to An Absolutely Remarkable Thing
Just finished this chapbook and am very much in love with it
For Start That Book Day I'm gonna (finally) dig into my e-galley of the delightful JP Brammer
I got this at Daunt Books last year and for #startthatbook I’m starting to read books I bought on travels
I just finished Dwellings by Linda Hogan so now I guess I get to pick something out for Start That Book Day
As has been documented I will be starting Wittgenstein's Mistress today!
Currently listening to Act Your Age Eve Brown
Currently reading 1177BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed. The Sea Peoples have longed been blamed for the collapse of the Bronze Age civilizations of the Eastern Mediterranean. Historians and archaeologists for decades have been trying to identify who these Sea Peoples, first discussed in Egyptian sources, were and where they came from. As one might expect the story is quite a bit more complex than the story of invaders from afar and the picture that is developing has gained much from continuing excavations as well as DNA analysis.
Recently finished Fears of a Setting Sun. Wonderful counterweight to the notion of the so-called wisdom of the founding fathers. Of course, all were flawed men and they all knew the constitution, being a product of compromise, was a flawed document. Turns out, however, all save Madison, were profoundly disillusioned at the end of their lives about the country and didn't expect the country to hold together much past their lifetimes. Spoiler alert, save Jefferson, all thought the problem was TOO MUCH democracy.
