I’ve been having a hard time keeping up with my monthly reading posts lately, mostly because I’m completely unaware when one month turns into another. That’s one of the unforeseen effects of automatic bill pay. So taking the cue from the Twitter/Google+ hashtag #fridayreads, I’m going to try to remember to share with you on Fridays what I’m reading and say something interesting about it.
This week I’m reading Blackout by Connie Willis, which is about time travel to the Blitz in London. Fun fact I learned from this book: Hitler had a list of English intellectuals he planned to imprison upon invading England. Names on the list included writers H.G. Wells, Aldous Huxley, E.M. Forster and Virginia Woolf; Lord Baden-Powell, the founder of scouting; and the actor Noel Coward.
