I took a few hours off today and had a wonderful walk. It was open jacket weather and I saw my first robin of spring.

Books in the queue:

  • "On Beauty" Zadie Smith - A gift from the publisher that arrived the day after I finished reading "White Teeth". Amazing timing.

  • "The Autobiography of Malcolm X" - Found for 50 cents in the most unlikely charity shop in Portland.

  • "The Secret Life of Bees" Sue Monk Kidd - We sold a stack of books in exchange for credit at a used bookstore. This was my choice but I still have remaining credit.

  • "The Time Traveler's Wife" Audrey Niffenegger

  • "Women in Caribbean History" Verene A. Shepherd - I bought this today at "A Different Booklist" while on my awesomely long walk.

  • "52 Projects" Jeffrey Yamaguchi - Also from the publisher but I had intended to get it so how awesome was that.

  • "Dark Age Ahead" Jane Jacobs

  • "Sister Outsider" Audre Lorde

  • "Silences" Tillie Olsen

  • "Tease: Inspired T-Shirt Transformations" ed. Sarah Sockit - I contributed a project to this one. pg 120. Woot. I plan to make the Button Down Tee as I generally prefer shirts with collars. And I am very picky about the size and shape of the collar.

  • "The Third Life of Grange Copeland" Alice Walker - A holiday gift that is still kickin'.
