I just spent an intense weekend in community.
My phone got stuck 5 minutes into the drive and wouldn’t shut off for a day. Charging it didn’t reset it, I had to let the battery die.
Instead of being annoyed by this, when my phone did work, I did the blog and Three Good Things and then turned it off.
By doing this, I was able to concentrate and read when not actively engaged with other people.
I read must and finished Allison Moon’s hilarious book of bawdy storytelling “Bad Dyke”, finishing it this morning. *** 1/2
I read quite a bit of the important and very heavy book “Headscarves and Hymens: Why the Middle East Needs a Sexual Revolution” by Mona Eltahawy. I think we all know women need to be treated better in the Arab world but it’s an issue important story to hear. ***
I really enjoyed reading John Green’s “Turtles All the Way Down”. I feel like I understand Obsessive Compulsive Disorder better now. *** 1/2
And I read most the fun and breezy romance novel “Walking Dick” (who is a dog) by Candi Heart and Sierra Rose. Fun, breezy romances are a good thing. ***
Finishing three books in a weekend is awfully nice.
