What I'm reading now
I'm hoping to finish Affinity this afternoon or tomorrow. I'm enjoying it immensely, but I've having trouble concentrating for very long when reading in print. (I don't blame the book.) Affinity is the Backlist Book Club pick this month, so I'll be reviewing it promptly as we're set to discuss it Wednesday.
For the first time ever, I'm racing through audiobooks more quickly than print or ebooks. I have developed an addiction to Candy Crush Saga, and I feel less bad about playing when I'm also listening to an audiobook. I'm also listening while running errands, fiddling around the house, cleaning, and at the gym. I'm currently listening to Lauren Graham's debut novel Someday, Someday, Maybe, which she narrates herself. Up next: something from the ridiculously large stack of books. For as hard of a time as I'm having reading in print lately, the list of books I want to read next is far too long.

to vote for our August selection. The votes are really tight between three titles: Small Island by Andrea Levy, On Beauty by Zadie Smith, and Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. The winner will be announced Thursday. Look for the September voting to begin on August 15.
