The hat continues.
I finished "Contrition"...it was a good book but wrapped things up too neatly. As I mentioned yesterday, the story is about a woman who was adopted at birth and as an adult learns her father was a famous painter and her sister is a cloistered nun. The characters are good and it wasn't too religious-y but I kind of disliked the overall idea that the main character's two life choices were a. nun or b. tabloid reporter.
I am also reading "Swann" by Carol Shields which is about an undiscovered poet and what happens when she is discovered. It seems pretty good. I haven't read any Carol Shields (how did I miss the excitement over "The Stone Diaries"?) so I'll keep going with this for a bit.
Other than that, just spending time walking the dogs and waiting for the rain to come!
