if you live near where i do it's FINALLY starting to get warm enough to read outside! I live in an upstairs apartment without a balcony, terrace or shared outside space but I love to read outside so last summer i mostly did so at the bar across the street with cheap domestic pints. they don't have their patio out yet this year, though, so i just went to a little park down the street and sat at a picnic table this morning. it was nice, i might do it more often because it's a lot cheaper. it's still pretty early in the season, though, so it was quite windy.
i finished A Visit From the Goon Squad by Jennifer Egan the other week, which is basically a bunch of vignettes from the perspectives of different characters who are connected in one way or another to two main characters over the course of their lives. [maybe spoilery] I wasn't sure how on board i was with it until a beautiful late chapter which is written in the form of a powerpoint presentation by a 12-year-old. by the end it brought me to tears for a reason i couldn't specifically place, but it felt really good. [cease spoilers]
then i was in toronto last weekend which gave me a lot of time to read on the flights, so i've started and nearly finished Beloved by Toni Morrison. i'll probably be done that by the time i do the next post so i'll talk about it then
how does seasonality affect your reading?
