Khadaji's Whatcha Reading Thread--August 2019 edition


How can it be August already?! April was just last week!

So here we are, in the North American west, sliding slowly into autumn... or maybe not since it's supposed to hit nearly 100 this weekend.

So Whatcha all reading? I am currently:

3/4 of the way through Americanah by Chimimanda Ngozi Adichie and loving it a lot. It's interesting to see the mess that is the US race relations through the eyes of an outsider.

The October Man by Ben Aaronovitch, Tobias Winter isn't nearly as interesting or as good of a narrator as Peter Grant.

Demon Spiral # 3 of fellow Utahn, Cheree Alsop's Dr Wolf- The Fae Rift series, it's more YA urban fantasy than I expected, but it's a fun series.

Limelight by Emily Organ, it's the first Penny Green book: set in Victorian England, Penny is a newspaper reporter and amateur sleuth. Again more YA, but the writing is good.

Khadaji was one of the earlier members of SDMB, and he was well-known as a kindly person who always had something encouraging to say, particularly in the self improvement threads. He was also a voracious, omnivorous reader, who started these threads way back in the Stone Age of 2013. Consequently when he suddenly and quite unexpectantly passed away, we decided to rename this thread in his honor and to keep his memory, if not his ghost, alive.
