The books I’m reading (I pick these up and put them down, but all of these are currently inching forward):
- The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven by Sherman Alexie
- A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness (the book du jour)
- Memories, Dreams, Reflections by C. G. Jung
- Trickster: An Anthropological Memoir by Eileen Kane
- Legends of the Fire Spirits by Robert W. Lebling
- Big Sur and the Oranges of Hieronymous Bosch by Henry Miller
- The Spirit and the Flesh: Sexual Diversity in American Indian Culture by Walter L. Williams
- When Ghosts Speak: Understanding the World of Earthbound Spirits by Mary Ann Winkowski
- and my own book Shivery Bones, doing one last bloody read-through.
Books I’m writing: If you count worldbuilding and creative noodling, then I’m writing Carmina and The Numberless Stars. If you’re talking about actual words getting written, then I ain’t currently writting nothin’.
The book I love the most: Couldn’t possibly choose. I usually love the one I’m with.
The last book I received as a gift: I made a killing on book gift certificates. I’ve included all the books I bought this way—not really to brag, but because I wouldn’t want any of these books to have their feelings hurt because I left them off the list. (I anthropomorphize everything.) (Hi, Lisa!):
