2018 Book Challenges- Week 3

I’ve not made much progress on reading this week. It’s not a secret that I’m somewhat disorganized and a lousy housekeeper.

We moved into this house three years ago and still weren’t completely unpacked. My sister-in-law and her husband arrived on Saturday night, and I decided to clean up. Like for real. Finally get it all done.

I’ve tried other methods in the past, scheduling time to tackle it a little at a time, things like that. But it doesn’t seem to be how I work. I’m better at starting a task and staying on it single-mindedly. So… that’s why the poor progress on reading.

But to be honest, I always forget how much I love things to be clean and organized. Maybe they’ll actually stay this way!

We Have Always Lived in the Castle, by Shirley Jackson– I cannot believe I’ve never read this. I’ve loved her short story, The Lottery, ever since I read it in high school. I’m not sure what I expected with this book, but it wasn’t what I got. It was an interesting psychological study. Jackson’s grasp on the worst in humanity is what makes her frightening.

    I finished the book Uncommon Type by Tom Hanks and have started Gold Dust Woman a biography of Stevie Nicks. I’m okay with that. I am also not the best housekeeper but the bills all get paid on time 🙂

      Ha, that’s what matters, right? How was Uncommon Type? It’s on my TBR.

        It was interesting. Not quite what I expected, although I don’t know really what I expected. I didn’t read the jacket thoroughly until I was almost halfway through and realized that there was a mention of a typewriter in every story. Once I read that, it all started to make sense and I paid attention for the typewriters. I’ll have to re-read it at some point.

        Thanks for the warning. I didn’t know that was part of it either!
