Here’s my first Currently post…
Reading | I’m meandering my way through Names for the Sea: Strangers in Iceland by Sarah Moss, and tearing through This Is Where You Belong: The Art and Science of Loving the Place You Live by Melody Warnick. And I’ve been reading Erich Wurster’s The Coaster in fits and bursts. (Thanks, Poisoned Pen Press, for that ARC in the mail!)
Listening (the books) | In the car, I’m spinning Yes, And: How Improvisation Reverses “No, But” Thinking and Improves Creativity and Collaboration: Lessons from the Second City by Kelly Leonard and Tom Yorton. Ron Chernow’s Alexander Hamilton is accompanying me on my iPhone. (Horrible shame: I realized it’s an abridged version. Don’t tell anyone!)
Listening (the non-books) | During a run last week, I nearly came to a dead halt when I heard that the Books on the Nightstand podcast
will soon cease production. Ann and Michael, you’ve been with me ever since my first iPod! Stunned and scrambling to fill my podcast subscriptions with more bookish fodder, and feeling slightly bereft.
Watching | Parks and Recreation. Yeah, this slacker’s still on season 6. But by design: I’m pacing myself.
|Pawnee City Hall? We visited it.
Learning | The Dear Man and I are both reading Black Hawk: An Autobiography, and his supplementary research is making it even more fascinating. So, yeah: we’re getting super smart about the Black Hawk War.
Loving | Cherries are in season, and I’ve eaten an unseemly amount because they’re stinkin’ amazing. Also: this pizza, which is our reigning thin crust champion.
Anticipating | Excited about some upcoming weekend adventures in our beautiful second city
Celebrating | I realized that I recently blew past my 20th anniversary as a public librarian. Still loving the life, but dang… 20 years?! I’m pretty sure I’m not old enough for that to be true.
|First day on the job
So, my fellow readers… What’ve you got currently going on?
