Welcome to Quick Lit, where we share short and sweet reviews of what we’ve been reading lately on the 15th of the month.
I’ve been reading up a storm around here! I’m in the thick of Summer Reading Guide preparations, which means I’ve been reading a ton of new-for-2022 releases, but you know I like to bring in some backlist for balance—even if it’s just a little bit.
I was on the road last week visiting colleges—and bookstores—and my conversations with booksellers influenced what I chose to read, as you’ll see below. (I also left signed copies and bookplates in my wake: order those from Main Street Books in Davidson, Malaprop’s Bookstore in Asheville, and Bookmarks NC in Winston-Salem. That’s the Bookmarks new release table pictured above.)
I’ve been logging books at a steady clip in my reading journal. In fact, this month I filled up my old journal and switched over to a new one! I talked a little bit about how I made the switch in this short video.
This isn’t everything I’ve been reading lately: I recently shared a collection of six audiobooks I’ve thoroughly enjoyed lately; don’t miss that post!
I can’t wait to hear about your recent reads in comments.
