I DNF'd Beneath the Ruthless Sun by Gilbert King. It was too dense with every person who ever lived in Central Florida being mentioned and no real narrative - it was dry historical look at the event. I just couldn't get into it.


Kids picked up their third prize of the Summer Reading Program - Sophia chose Winnie the Horse Gentler #5: Unhappy Appy by Dandi Daley Mackall; Joshua picked up Who Would Win? Hammerhead Vs. Bull Shark. We borrowed some kids graphic novels and a couple of non-fiction books to fill the last two prompts for one side of the kids' version of the SRP. 


Yesterday, I started One Person, No Vote by Carol Anderson and it's so good - much more readable than Ari Berman's Give Us the Ballot (although Anderson's work does reference and quote Berman's book some). I also started The Ghost Map and while the first chapter does a lot to set up the class structure of life in Victorian London, it is just started to get going. Since I finished both graphic novels that I borrowed last week, I picked up two new ones - Wonder Woman: Tempest Tossed by Laurie Halse Anderson and Leila del Duca and Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale by Lauren Myracle and Isaac Goodhart. I have had my eye on the Catwoman one for some time, but I had no idea LHA wrote a WW graphic novel and had to read it. 


Sorry no books attached - BL is being a right pain in the ass and slow as fuck.
