I made it through most of the books I'd gotten from my last visit to the library. (I'm still reading Losing a Lost Tribe, which is turning out to be a good read, but I gave up on Neal Stephenson's Reamde after about 50 pages; it wasn't badly written, but I'm not especially interested in books about gaming or hacking, and I don't really have time for 1,000-page books at the moment.) Fortuately, a number of books I'd ordered through interlibrary loan came in, and I picked them up today:
- The Buddha in the Attic (Admittedly, this is a small book; I both started it and finished it today. Pretty interesting, although I did skip a few sections when it turned into page-long repetitious paragraphs.)
- Holy Ghost Girl: A Memoir
- Doing the Works of Abraham, Mormon Polygamy: Its Origin, Practice, and Demise
- Mormon Polygamous Families: Life in the Principle
I don't quite know how I wound up getting so many books about Mormons and polygamy. I blame the book suggestion feature.
