Reading List

  • Zadie Smith has been on my to-read list for years and I FINALLY read On Beauty—am now busily putting the rest of her books (including the just published Swing Time) on my library hold list.
  • I’m halfway through Ali Smith’s How to Be Both and the first section (narrated by the ghost of a Renaissance artist) was both bizarre and wonderful, so I’m looking forward to the rest.
  • Next up: Bad Feminist by Roxane Gay!


At Home

  • The Good Place is back! I LOVE this show! If you haven’t seen it, catch the older episodes on Hulu and then join us to watch the best show on television at the moment. (Besides, it totally counts as a homeschool intro-to-philosophy credit.) 
  • Actually, we’re watching a lot of TV, now that all the shows are back after Christmas break. I don’t have the emotional energy for drama (well, except for This is Us, which I’m hooked on), but I’m really enjoying the diversity in the new & returning batch of family sitcoms: Blackish, Speechless, and The Real O’Neals are all excellent.
  • Up next for our semi-monthly family movie outing: Hidden Figures—everyone I know who’s seen it has loved it!
