    I've been toggling back and forth between Life With Picasso, by Francoise Gilot and a writer named Carlton Lake, and In Search of Our Mother's Gardens, by Alice Walker.

    Despite his being an arrogant, sexist little ass, she treats him quite fairly and her observations and explanations about his art processes are really quite good. She also has some hilarious stories involving his eccentricities and general home life that are a lot of fun. It was a different time, in so many ways.

    Walker has interested me since reading a short story in an American Lit class, though I admit I thought I might be bored by the essay style. I need not have worried; she is a brilliant and captivating writer. I'll likely be taking a deep dive after this one.

    The Paris Wife - Hemingway's first wife Hadley. She was originally from St. Louis. Historical fiction.

    I read a bunch of WWII books of women spies and the Tattooist of Auschwitz. Fascinating reads, but got depressing. Switched it up and now reading a few beach reads.

    Received the entire Harry Potter series as a Christmas present. Currently on book 5.

    The first couple books were nice and short. The third was like, hey, I’m getting a little more involved and serious. Then the fourth book was like, hahaha, too bad sucker, you’re too far in to stop now, here’s a gazillion pages and good luck with the rest of the series.

    Ok, I’m only half kidding. I think the fourth has been my favorite so far. We’ll see if it stays that way after 5, 6, and 7.

    I just ordered a manual that I didn't have. I will probably read it word-for-word, as is my custom.

    "The Family Corleone" - Ed Falco

    Not a good book in the least, I'm reading it at bedtime, and it is putting me to sleep fast.
