In anticipation of shipping delays and supply issues, my husband suggested converting my wishlist into a few carts sooner rather than later. I like his thinking.
Since my last annotated list, I have read:
■ Glass Houses
■ Kingdom of the Blind
Two more mysteries by Louise Penny.
■ All’s Well That Ends Well
Only three works remain in my quest to reread all of Shakespeare’s plays this year.
■ Oedipus Trilogy: New Versions of Sophocles’ Oedipus the King, Oedipus at Colonus, and Antigone (Trans. Bryan Doerries; 2021. Drama.)
I celebrated the publication of this collection by reading along with the three related Theater of War events.
■ The Power and the Glory (Graham Greene; 1940. Fiction.)
For the Cardiff BookTalk.
■ Franci’s War: A Woman’s Story of Survival (Franci Rabinek Epstein; 2020. Non-fiction.)
For a Gross Center for Holocaust & Genocide Studies Home program.
■ The Mayor of Casterbridge (Thomas Hardy; 1886. Fiction.)
With the folks behind the fabulous The Readers Karamazov podcast.
■ Faust (Goethe (trans. Margaret Kirby; 2015); 1808. Drama.)
My fall book group concluded last weekend.
■ The Inferno of Dante (Dante Alighieri (trans. Robert Pinsky; 1995); 1320. Poetry.)
With 100 Days of Dante.
■ What Happened to Paula: On the Death of an American Girl (Katherine Dykstra; 2021. Non-fiction.)

■ Beatrix Potter: A Life in Nature (Linda Lear; 2007. Non-fiction.)
This excellent biography satisfies one of my reading challenges.
