I’m the kind of person who easily gets lost in a good book. Last summer, I discovered that the RIGHT audiobook is just as easy to get lost in as a physical book. This week I fell into Octavia Butler’s Kindred. I have been meaning to read her work since college, but would forget to look for her once I got to the bookstore. 2 years ago I started keeping a list of books and authors I wanted to read: This has helped me broaden my horizons. I’m subscribed to the 28 Days of Black History newsletter from Anti-Racism Daily; Octavia Butler’s novel, Parable of the Sower, was featured on the 19th. I took this as a sign from the universe, and directly went to Hoopla (an app supported by my local public library, THANK YOU). I decided to read/listen to Kindred this week. From the beginning I was GRIPPED. Parts of the book are visceral, story is so fascinating, I absolutely binged the book.
I started a Tale of Two Cities, but fiction from this time period is a slow burn for me. It takes a long time for me to get into.
While binging on an awesome book, I made a TON of progress on my Right Round Scarf! I have 4 or 5 more sections to go!! I tried on my WIP today! I’m thinking I can have it completed this weekend.
I’ve also been drafting up the Acute Shawl to get to my testers (like 10 minutes of work left to do). I feel slightly less sure of my crochet abilities sometimes, so I feel some anxiety that I’ll get it wrong. I’m just being absurd, I know. But the imposter feeling is real.
