Wednesday Reading Meme

(Pope Francis I, huh? Has a certain ring to it.)

What have you just finished reading?
When Things Fall Apart by Pema Chodron. Does eventually tell you what to do when things fall apart, thus useful.

What are you currently reading?
The Hobbit, more suited to these grey and fitful March days than My Name Is Red. There's a certain time-warp factor to rereading a book after 45 years-- I can *almost* see the world as it looked in 1966. If I reread LotR, I only see my other rereads: the last of which, granted, was a good decade ago.

The Invisible Library, about which I shall have questions for incandescens when she comes back. How does the Library define family if uncle-burdened Kai is considered to have none?

What will you read next?
Shall finish Red, as well as White is for Witching by Helen Oyeyemi. Requires close attention, so is currently on the back burner. Then maybe some of those urban fantasies from the Kitchen Stack.
