Huh, this seems to be the only kind of post I have time for right now! Ah, working in retail.
Books I finished this week:
Books I am currently reading/listening to:
I am re-reading Push by Sapphire. It’s as gritty and beautiful as I remember. I read it a while back when I was fresh out of high school. I found that while fluffy stuff like Sloppy Firsts no longer appeals to me after 15 years, meaningful things like Push (the basis for the movie Precious) really stay with me. When I’m done I think I’ll re-read another old favorite, like Kindred by Octavia Butler or Their Eyes Were Watching God by Zora Neale Hurston. I don’t actually own copies of those anymore (my cousin Jerome in the Philippines has them, I think), so will have to re-buy.
I’m also reading Leviathan by Scott Westerfeld. I love this guest post he wrote on Joe Scalzi’s blog.
Books I haven’t started yet, but recently acquired:
What can I say, the husband is on a huge graphic novel kick and I promised to read them all, too.
Also acquired from David Y at last night’s YABC meeting:

Let’s just hope I get some reading done this week.
