    I am just about finished with Animal Liberation by Peter Singer (the second edition). It has been a grueling, boring, sleep-inducing read, though informative!

    I will be glad to be done with it and dig into a novella!

    Fortunately I don't have allergies, so I meant if I needed expensive prescription meds in general.

    Part way through ďThe Conservative SensibilityĒ by Gary Wills. Either Iím changing or he is, but Iíve come to appreciate his work more in recent years. I may need to go back to his earlier work when I finish this. Anyone else had the experience of growing into a writer you didnít appreciate earlier?

    I feel like I read a lot more when I was younger, unfortunately. I have to get back to reading more. I've read one of Garry Wills' books--Why I Am A Catholic, but I feel that, if I still am Catholic in my heart, I'm still more in the Catholic "Christian anarchy" camp of Dorothy Day, and I think Wills does not quite fit that brand of Catholicism.

    In terms of writers, I am reading The Brothers Karamazov, which is great, so I guess you could say I now appreciate Dostoyevsky.

    If that is your genre, check out Kate Walbert's His Favorites. Really good.
    I finished His Favorites. It was a good and a fast read!

    Nice! I just read The Perfect Wife by JP Delaney. It was fun and raised some interesting questions, but the end was confusing.

    I am reading Post Office by Charles Bukowski. It is pretty good, funny, a bit heart wrenching too.

    This is a warm-up for my Year of the Novella 2020. I plan to read a whole bunch of novellas and novelettes throughout 2020.

    Interesting. What list are you using to find them?
