Gen Z explains politics and life to his boomer parents – Blue Skies and Green Pastures
I buy books and sometimes I even read them! I’ve been super busy , who isn’t , but I did get to read a little this weekend. For some reason I haven’t started Thunderstruck by Neal Shusterman (second from top) yet even though I am looking forward to it. I think I’m worried it won’t be as good as the first book, Scythe. I did finally start Free Outside by Jeff Garmire, a book about his Triple Crown hike in one calendar year. I ordered it directly to support him and it is actually well written. But then the mailman brought State of Fear by Michael Crichton and I had to see what it was like. The writing is not nearly as good as I expected, but the plot (environmental wackos) is interesting. It’s on the top of the pile because I plan to read it today. I also have three other books under these that I haven’t started yet. The Jesse Ventura book was an impulse buy. Seemed like it might be good to have for the future, you know , when censorship increases. Finding Truth by Nancy Pearcey is a book I ordered new and still haven’t read . The subject matter is good , but I have such limited leisure reading time that I keep setting it aside for more escapist stories , like Scythe. And the bottom book , Jacob The Liar by Jurek Becker ,I found at Goodwill. It’s a Holocaust story . I’ll get to it when I’m in the right mood.
What’s on your nightstand or end table ? Do you have trouble getting a little time to read ? How do you decide which one to read ? Share in the comments! Happy reading !
