Library Books

I have some problems, but I am only going to talk about one of them in this blog post.  I have too many damn library books.  These are the books I have to finish in the next three weeks:

The Taste of Salt by Martha Southgate.  It is the story of black woman scientist's struggle to deal with issues of race, class, family, and addiction. The book looks interesting.  I think I'm going to like this, probably because I liked all her other books.   It was intitally published in softcover by Algonquin Books of Chapel Hill.

The Dyslexic Advantage: Unlocking the Hidden Potential of Dyslexic Brain by Brock L. Eide, M.D., M.A. and Fernette F. Eide, M.D.  I am interested in minds that see the world differently than I do and this book discusses and gives examples of the strengths of dyslexia.

Tablet & Pen
Literary Landscapes from The Modern Middle East
Edited by Reza Aslan
Someone told me about this book and I just couldn't resist it.  It's an anthology of short stories.  I cannot help myself.

All Souls: A Family Story From Southie   Michael Patrick MacDonald   All the controversy about whites writing about blacks made me wonder about white experiences and I found this book.


The White Woman On The Green Bicycle  Monique Roffey

You see, a person has to be careful even at the library.  It's important not to over extend yourself, but it's difficult when there are so many good books and writers out there.  I try.  I really do.
