This is the week of trying to finish books. I'm in the middle of three right now.
The first is Some Assembly Required: A Journal of my Son's First Son by Anne Lamott with Sam Lamott,. It's about the birth of her grandson and watching her son become a father. I love the way that she writes so honestly and openly about her life and the lives of those around her. The only problem I have with reading this book is that there are so many lines that I like to think about and write down that I have to stop a lot. It's a library so I have to finish it soon so I can return it.
The second is Ghetto Medic: A Father in the 'Hood by Rachel Hennick. This book is written about the author's father who worked as an EMT in Baltimore. The stories are interesting, but a little gruesome for me. It is one of the many free books that I have on my Kindle.
The third is Empty by Suzanne Weyn. It's a young adult dystopian book that is about the world when the oil supply is running seriously low. This is one of the books that I got for free from the professor that I took one of my graduate classes from this summer. I have a stack of other young adult books that I'm slowly working my way through.
