• What are you reading?

Word by Word, by Kory Stamper. I gave this, That Inevitable Victorian Thing, and Record of a Spaceborn Few to Nixie for Jolabokaflod, but she was traveling with only a backpack and did not take them back to Portland with her.

• What did you recently finish reading?

Harriet the Spy, by Louise Fitzhugh. The best book about being eleven.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

We Are Legion, by Dennis Taylor, for SF bookgroup.


I watched Rumble: The Indians Who Rocked the World, a documentary about Native American and First Nations musicians in rock. Even though the DVD does not have subtitles, so I did not catch every word, it was well worth watching.
There is a lot of beauty, both visual and aural, in this movie, but I have to warn for a few photographs of state-sponsored mass murder, with the perpetrators standing proudly in their uniforms over the bodies of their victims, and some photos and brief videos of police brutally assaulting people of color.
Also there are people who talk about things that are not genetic being "in your blood", but they mean well.
