I started A Blue Hand - The Beats in India By Deborah Baker. It's... different.

It was a $5 find at a closing down sale at a store in the city and it looked and sounded interesting. I guess it's just very slow moving. Not sure what I was expecting.

My whole family were doing that '2015 Reading Challenge' thing that was going around. I started it and was doing quite well, but realised that I wasn't reading books I actually wanted to read, but books that would check off whichever the next box was. Although that did get me to read some things I probably never would have picked up otherwise, like The Brothers Karamazov and In Cold Blood, both of which I really enjoyed.
