What I read this week: February 1-7

I hardly read anything this week.  Wait, that's not true.  I read just as much as usual, I just didn't finish very much.  In fact, I only finished one book this week. 

  • Running: a Love Story by Jen A Miller.  I received this as an ARC and it is scheduled to be released March 22, 2016.  I think this might be a book that only a runner could love.  I really liked her descriptions of running and of races.  I didn't so much care for the series of crappy relationships she described. 


That's all I finished this week.  I'm deeply caught up in several other books:  Out of the House of Bread by Preston Yancey (which requires some work and introspection, I might not finish that one for a while), re-reading Evicted by Matthew Desmond (because I'm going to review it for another publication), and Men We Reaped by Jesmyn Ward.    Listen, Men We Reaped combined with Evicted and Beyonce's "Formation" is giving me some feelings.  I'm not sure how or if I'll write about it because I'm not sure I'm equipped to write about it.  But those feelings are a lot of why I read so little last week.  Stay tuned for more.
