Really little stitches
Searching for a new book to enthrall me--there's a new Ruth Ware being published next week so I'm looking forward to that and will probably just fill in with various stuff I have on the Kindle. There are three things that I'm picking up and putting down:
- "High Rising" by Angela Thirkell--she wrote a lot of novels about life in small English villages right after WW2, I'm hoping they are like "The Provincial Lady" books but this one isn't capturing me. High Rising is a town. People live there. They gossip. I hope it gets more involved.
- "Jane and Prudence" by Barbara Pym, a novel about two women, one of whom lives in a small English village, and their friendship. Not much is happening.
- "Summer at Tiffany" is a memoir from a woman who went to New York in the summer of 1945 with a friend from college (U of Iowa) and they both got jobs at Tiffany's. It's a cute little memoir and it's on Kindle Unlimited so if you need a little mindless story it would be a good one to try.
The Great Hack
We watched this documentary on Netflix last night--it is about the Cambridge Analytica-Facebook data breach. I had read (and written) about this academically but didn't really know the whole story, so I learned a lot from the documentary and it made a bunch of things make more sense.
I think that is it from me!
