  1. September…Ugh! I keep thinking about the great books last fall…Commonwealth, The Mothers, Mischling. Things have got to get better.

    I hadn’t even heard of The Floating World, but just checked it out. Looks like it could be good. I’ll let you vet it for me. Hoping October treats you right!

  3. I’m intrigued by Sourdough, because some years ago I really got into sourdough baking — I even wrote a (nonfiction) book about it! But I’m a little put off by the idea of a “talking” sourdough. I guess I should just try it and see how I like it…if it’s one of only two books you liked this month, I think it’s worth a look.
