The Western Wind
Harvey's brilliance lies in her ability to humanize and complicate her characters, to give them lives and loves and losses, jealousies and pain and secrets.

What I've Been Reading - October 20, 2019
I'm sitting here watching Booksmart and remembering what it was like to be a completely nerdy girl in high school. And I'm sure absolutely zero people are surprised that I was a complete nerd in high school because I am now, at 40 years of age, a completely nerdy woman sitting on her couch writing blog posts about the articles she's read. And I'm totally OK with that. Because I read some interesting shit this week.

What I've Been Reading - October 13, 2019
My reading was a bit all over the place this week, but these were the articles I felt were worth sharing. There are so many more I tagged to read, but wasn't able to get to. Just one of those weeks.

I love being surrounded by books, having all those minds and stories to dive into and learn things from. But I have a couple of shelves in my office next to my desk where I rotate out a smaller group of books that I want to have immediate access to. These are the ones that feed whatever I'm currently interested in and represent not only aspirations but interests and passions.

Only one thing to read this week. The 1619 Project from The New York Times Magazine.

What I've Been Reading - August 11, 2019
It's been a rough week here in Dayton. A week ago, we woke up to the news that in less than 30 seconds a man managed to kill nine people and wound almost 30 others in a popular downtown district. I don't know how to internalize that or what else to say about that. There are no words for that kind of horror. Anyway, here are some things I read this week. Maybe they'll help, maybe they'll distract, though distraction can be a form of help.
