I, Murderbot

We love to look at ourselves. Gimme a mirror and half an hour and I’m an absorbed individual. So it is that Martha Wells’ recently published series of novellas, The Murderbot Diaries, presents us with a delightfully engaging new tactic for whiling away the hours.

Lonely City and my conversion to audiobooks

Most recently I fell in love with Lonely City by Olivia Laing. It’s a rich and fascinating book that is equal parts memoir, biography, and cultural criticism. Laing explores her own experience of intense loneliness through a lens of visual, musical, and cultural artists. The number of subjects she weaves together is inspiring. The reader is British, as is the author, although the book is mostly set in New York. I loved listening to the accent!

Practically Purrrrrrfect in every way

If there is room in your heart and home for a cat, maybe June is a great time to act. It’s national adopt-a-shelter-cat month! Cedar Mill Community Library is located near a pet supply store named Pet Barn, which continually houses a cat up for adoption. A little feline fix is only a five minute walk away!
