It's astonishing how quickly one can burn through books when they aren't 1100 pages long. I started White Trash two hours ago, stopped reading it an hour ago, and am already about 1/6th of the way through it.

I'd be interested in a review of that one, too, if you feel like it once ya finish; it is on my list o' books to read.

No judgment at all, because this book seems right up your alley, but man. This does not sound like a happy reading time book.

The two audiobooks I dug into prior to polishing off Durant were Galbraith's The Great Crash and Toland's Last 100 Days. The fiction book I used for respite a time or two is Bacigalupi's Water Knife. The one on my phone I opted not to start instead of White Trash is Toland's Rising Sun.

My library has a lot of bleakness.
