I’m reading kind of promiscuously now, and didn’t finish anything today. My current books in progress:
Gate of Ivory by Doris Egan. Not feeling the fan love here; it seems very… sparse and shallow. I’m continuing to read it largely out of inertia. I think it goes in the category of, “would have enjoyed more when I was younger,” like Mary Stewart and Betty Neels.
Asperger Syndrome and Adolescence by Teresa Bolick. Not precisely stress free reading, but it comes under the header of “Books I’ve Wanted to Read But Haven’t Felt Like I Had the Time For.”
Illusion by Jean Ross Ewing. (Julia Ross.) I remember how thrilled I was to find this rare book by a favorite, non-prolific author. That was years ago. I got scared off by mentions of Waterloo and dangerous webs of intrigue in the blurb… but Ross really does write wonderful webs of intrigue, though I’m not loving it so far.
Comfortable with Uncertainty by Pema Chodron. I’m reading a chapter of this every day as part of a program to reduce my anxiety and addiction to mindless entertainment.
