What I read and watched in April
Here’s a beautiful thing: A comfortable patio chair on a sunny balcony to read outside and not freeze. I love this season so much it’s probably against some rule. And not just because of the sun. I manage to read more.
Here’s what I got through this month:
Un lien familial by Nadine Bismuth, An Absolutely Remarkable Thing by Hank Green, Full Disclosure by Beverley McLachlin (yes, the former Chief Justice can write; she spins a mean yarn), Crudo by Olivia Laing, Thanks a Thousand by A.J. Jacobs.
Still in progress: The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, Black Milk by Elif Shafak, Whistle in the Dark by Emma Healy, Sing, Unburied Sing by Jesmyn Ward.
Here’s what I watched: The Black List (First season, and a bit of Season 2; falling in love again with James Spader, which wasn’t all that hard), Gods and Generals, Gettysburg, Wall-E, A Bug’s Life.
