September Update 2015
Well, here we are weeks later, and I still have not delivered on my promises from last month. And, I have a new group of books out of the library besides what's on my Kindle waiting for me. Right now I am reading John Henry Hepp, IV's The Middle Class City: Transforming Space and Time in Philadelphia 1876 - 1926, which is helping me place my ancestors in historical context. Then there's waiting for me Joan Didion's The Year of Magical Thinking, Julia Pierpont's Among the Ten Thousand Things, and Patti Smith's Just Kids, which I read a few years ago but want to re-read.
I've been reading Slave: My True Story by Mende Nazer and Damien Lewis for October's book gathering on my Kindle as well as a new Nora Carroll called Academy Girls.
Now if I could just get those pesky reviews written, I might make some progress!
