SnapDragon shares her scattered, bite-sized-bits of reading.
Hi! It’s time for Book-of-the-Month, yo!
I, um, (coughs) haven’t finished a book since I don’t know when.
And so, I’ll fill you in on my three-page-at-a-time, four-books-at-once journey as of late:
Hood Feminism (Mikki Kendall, 2020)
I saw this on a suggested reading list at my work place, and immediately ordered it via the behemoth that is Amazon. So far it’s bloody-well on point. There are so many struggles in this world, friend. We have so much work to do. #educatetoliberate
The Best American Short Stories 2019 (Anthony Doerr, Heidi Pitlor, 2019)
Yep. Here I am again, making my way through this annual reading ritual, and pushing it right up to the new year. Man I love short fiction. It’s juicy. It’s succulent. It’s inspiring me to get back to my own work. #stopslacking
To a God Unknown (John Steinbeck, 1933)
I’ve said it many-a-time: Steinbeck is a slow burn. But I also must say: this might be the slowest. And of course, there are so many beautifully-soothing passages. I frigging love you, John Steinbeck. #namesakes
What to Expect The First Year (Heidi Murkoff, 2014)
I know, I know. Books aren’t a substitute for experience. But I’m an Academic, after all. I like to prepare myself. Baby Snap is almost a year old (gulp!) but is also kinda like nine months old. #preemiebaby

What’s on your reading list, Dear Reader?
C’mon! Leave a suggestion. It’s not like I have dozens and dozens of books on my shelf that I couldn’t possibly read in a lifetime.
