    jeppy, I read his In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts a while back and thought it was really impactful. I'll have to request The Myth of Normal, thanks for the tip! Finished The Forgotten Girls (Monica Potts) and am reading Demon Copperhead (Barbara Kingsolver). Earlier in the month, I read Alexander McCall Smith's retelling of Emma - which was charming, as I'd expect from him - and The White Lady. Jacqueline Winspear, not one of her best IMHO. But a quick and entertaining read, nonetheless.

    I also read In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts and I agree that it is really impactful. I downloaded The Myth of Normal, and haven't gotten that far into it yet.

    I was really on a roll with How Lucky, Recursion, Queen's Gambit, and Annabel, but then not so much after that.
    I am Nujood: Age 10 and Divorced by Nujood Ali and Melissa Minoui - interesting enough story, but not told in the most compelling way, if that makes sense.
    Melissa (originally published as George) by Alex Gino - story of a transgender child that I believe was written for a much younger audience. I didn't think it was a bad book, but I would have liked it more when I was 12.
    The Atlas of Love by Laurie Frankel - I read this because I loved her book This is How it Always Is. It was a decent read, although not as good as This is How it Always Is, about grad students and a baby living in an atypical family arrangement and the joys and tribulations of their relationships.

    Death is But a Dream, by Christopher Kerr, about end of life phenomena in a hospice setting, and next up a Duggar memoir Becoming Free Indeed by Jinger Duggar Vuolo, and
    Soonish: Ten Emerging Technologies That'll Improve and/or Ruin Everything
    , by Weinersmith and weinersmith.

    Death is But a Dream doesn't really plow new ground, just reaffirms what I've experienced.

    Reading a novel translated from Norwegian called Giants in the Earth. About immigrants settling on the north plains and how prairie madness was very real.

    theres a famous snark website called Free Jinger! where all things Dugger are discussed as well as fundie stuff. Some of the Duggar girls got away.

    Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby van Pel
    liked it very much. Marcellous, the octopus, was a cool character.



    Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe
    This is the most challenged books in libraries in 2022.
    It’s an autobiography in comic panel form about a girl who is not entirely comfortable in her skin, and she’s not very interested in sex, and she’s confused if she should “do “anything about it.

    Okay---I was reading wikipedia articles about the Cessna 150 airplane. So anyway---I read a followup article about an incident back in 1994, where a guy named Frank Corder stole a Cessna 150 while intoxicated, and crash-landed it on the grounds of The White House(which is a VERY racist thing to call it). But yeah---he crashed it, and did not survive. The Clintons were living over at Blair house, while the(rascist name deleted)U.S. Chief Executive Mansion was being remodeled or at least undergoing repairs. Debugging, possibly? But yeah---the guy isn't a household name, is he? If he'da had an "assault rifle" or even a "high-powered rifle" or "handgun" on board his plane, well----they'd still be dwelling on the incident, like he was comparable to a Squeaky Fromme. But no, he's about like a box-cutter wielding plane hijacker. Sure is. Yup.2023-05-15 (4).jpg2023-06-05.jpg2023-06-05 (1).jpg
