What I Happen to Be Reading At the Moment

"A thirteen-year-old is a kaleidoscope of different personalities, if not in most ways a mere figment of her own imagination. At that age, what and who you are depends largely on what book you happen to be reading at the moment.”


While not 13 anymore, the desire to read almost anything and everything in order to read for fun and for experience is still around. I'm currently working on my PhD in a physical science, but I love to read and books are one of my non-science hobbies.

The Distracted Preacher

The Distracted Preacher - Thomas Hardy Thomas Hardy: either going to break your heart or write a fun little racy* novella about a local preacher and a widow who seems to be having way too many adventures for a nice English lady to have. Chaos, misunderstandings, and random shootings ensue.

*Nothing is really that racy for a modern reader, but the eponymous preacher is very conflicted over some men's wear.
