• What are you reading?

Still Word by Word, by Kory Stamper, and We Are Legion, by Dennis Taylor. I really would have enjoyed this when I was twelve.

• What did you recently finish reading?

Left to Take the Lead, by Marissa Lingen, a short story available here. It is near-future, mundane SF. I love this kind of fish-out-of-water communication so much, whether it is Murderbot, who is just not equipped for some of the baggage that comes with being treated as a person, or here, where the narrator is a normal functional human who comes from a normal functional human society that has profoundly different foundations than the one she is in.

• What do you think you’ll read next?

I've got Erotic Stories for Punjabi Widows, by Balli Kaur Jaswal, to read for review.

• What are you watching?

Season 3 of Fargo.

Widows, in theater with family. If I had known how violent one scene (Daniel Kaluuya's character in the bowling alley) was, I would have watched it at home, where I can fast forward or take a break. Fortunately, my son let me grab his hand until that scene was over. (There are other violent scenes, but they are not up-close, prolonged torture.)
