It’s Another Slow, Cloudy Friday

It’s been a slow week on Bookdwarf. Work is keeping me busy with the holidays coming up and all. Books have to be chosen, displays planned, schedules made, etc. I’ve barely had time to read. I’m in the middle of One Bullet Away, that you see in the left column over there. It’s probably the most well-written memoir about the military I’ve read this year (I agree with that Salon article about Kayla William’s memoir Love My Rifle More Than You), but Nathaniel Fick does get bogged down with military acronyms and making sure he gives us every detail about his missions. Overall I am enjoying it. And I am still liking King Leopold’s Ghost by Adam Hochschild, which is an account of the Belgian King Leopold’s plunder of Africa.
What’s everyone else reading these days? Are you liking/hating it?

    I’m reading Demons by Dostoevsky and really enjoying it. Of the four of his I’ve read thus far, this is a very close second, just behind The Brothers Karamazov.
