I finished Our Kids (Simon & Schuster, March 10th) this weekend, a fascinating if not exactly uplifting book on class mobility--and immobility--in the United States today. It wasn't without its issues, but it was definitely an interesting read nonetheless. Full review to come in March. Continuing the non-fiction kick, I started and then set aside Galileo's Middle Finger (Penguin Press, March 10th) this weekend--it just wasn't giving me the stories of the intersection of science and social justice I'd expected from it--and turned to Terms of Service (HarperCollins, March 17th) instead.
Fiction-wise, I'm just getting into Geek Love on audio for the February readalong over at Estella Society; join us! I'm also eying The African Equation (Gallic, March 17th) and planning to start in on Frog Music for my book club's February discussion. Miraculously, this will be my first time reading Emma Donoghue. I'm also just wrapping up My Sunshine Away, which comes out from Putnam tomorrow. I'm torn between racing through to the end and trying to savor Walsh's story and language; stay tuned for more thoughts on this one later this week.
