- Mythago Wood, by Robert Holdstock
- Sometimes Magic Works, by Terry Brooks
- Building a Movement to End the New Jim Crow, by Daniel Hunter
I need to read more Margaret Atwood. I read A Handmaiden's Tale a long time ago. It struck too close to home, I was so traumatized I decided I didn't like the author. Another case of blaming the messenger I suppose. Anyway, this summer NPR's Science Friday picked Oryx and Crake for it's book group, and got on my library hold list. :-)
Mythago Wood took a while for me to get into, but once I did, it was immersive. Lovely fantasy, dark and light all at once.
Sometimes Magic... was ok, but I barely remember it. I don't know if that's a commentary of my state of the mind during the holiday season, or just the book.
Building a Movement... is a dense book. I'll have to read it again to fully digest it. For anyone interested in the need for a new civil rights movement, it's a must read.
