I just finished Rise and Shine, Benedict Stone, by Phaedra Patrick. Very light novel about the meaning of family ties. For a book club.

Rereading The Norton Anthology of American Literature, Vol E (1945-present), with my wife. We just made it through Augie March (chapter 1) and the Invisible Man (prologue + chapter 1), onto more chapter 1s!
