She’s so sweet here and so young–who can resist?
I’m off to Michigan–did you guess? Please do summer the Historiann way: get plenty of fresh air, wear sunscreen and bug spray P.R.N., and give yourself and your animals plenty of water. Blogging will resume once I’ve groomed and watered the horses. (It’s a long ride across the plains, after all.) I’ve got some research and writing to do out there, but I’ve packed Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad for my beach reading pleasure. Have any of you read it? Without spoilers, let me know what you thought about it.
As for other summer reading: Unlike Tenured Radical, I’m actually quite interested to read Jaycee Dugard’s new memoir (since I’m writing a book about a little girl captive, although hers was a captivity under very different circumstances.) What are you reading now, and/or what are you taking to the beach this summer?
(Confidential to Tenured Radical: congratulations and best wishes! This is wonderful news, and richly deserved.)
