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.

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.

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.
