What I'm Reading Now

A thread for sharing what we're currently reading: Fiction, nonfiction, novels, short stories, historical fiction, biographies, romance, fanfic, comic books, graphic novels, longform journalism, research papers, stuff for pleasure, stuff for work, whatever.

I'm currently (re)reading The View from Flyover Country: Dispatches from the Forgotten America by Sarah Kendzior. (Buy it here. Also be sure to request it at your local library!)

[Full Disclosure: I think most of y'all know this already, but Sarah and I are friends, and I am mentioned in the acknowledgements.]

I highly, highly recommend this book. Sarah's writing is so important, especially during this time, and if you really want to understand what's happening in this country, reading everything she writes will help immensely.

Also: In addition to being smart AF, she is a wonderful writer. Even when she's writing about some loathsome shit, she is a pleasure to read.
