I seem to have the Summer blahs, both in reading and writing on this blog. It got hot here for the first time this year, we broke 100 yesterday with a high of 102, hottest in many years. I know that may not be a big deal for you who have been sweltering all Summer, but for Portland, it’s severe. We’re watering and protecting the garden as best we can.
New Arrivals – nothing again this week.
Current Reading – I started two books and set them aside after about 20 pages. Nothing at all wrong with them, they just didn’t interest me at the time. Finally, I pulled an older one off the shelf, Roots by Alex Hailey. I’m about 300 pages into it, enjoying it though I admit I’ve skimmed a few sections here and there. I also got Frank DeFord’s new autobiography, Over Time, from the library and am about a third of the way into it. Quick, episodic stories from his years as a sports writer, most of them at Sports Illustrated.
