Friday Reads (on Sunday)

On Friday I had no idea what I was going to read this week, so I didn't post. It's now 1:00 am Sunday morning, and I think I can finally post something.

A Companion to Jane Austen by Claudia L. Johnson and Clara Tuite - This is all that's left from my August TBR. I'm only 20% in, but it's a lot of book. I read a chapter every day, but it takes awhile because I'm annotating as I go. Some essays are better than others.

Another Appalachia: Coming Up Queer and Indian in a Mountain Place by Neema Avashia - I am about a third through this one and it's really interesting. Each chapter is about a difference aspect of her childhood in rural West Virginia. Her father was a doctor at Union Carbide chemical company. The cover has a picture with a LOT of kids in it, but so far, she's only mentioned her older sister. Maybe they will come up eventually.

Quietly In Their Sleep by Donna Leon - I started this 3 years ago, but abandoned it because I was too distracted by the chaos in my life to pay attention. Now I've read past where I was the first time and I remembered very little of it. I'm enjoying this one and it reads quickly.

I have 3 more library books out that I may or may not get to this week. Who knows? There are 4 days left of the month, and these books may fill up that time just fine.
