April Wrap-Up

This wrap-up is definitely going to be of the short and sweet variety. Key points from this month: I'm still unbelievably busy, blogging and reading are still taking back seats, but I'm still alive! And hopefully by the middle of May when the semester ends I'll be able to be on a more normal posting schedule.

THE BOOKS

REMINISCENCES OF MY LIFE IN CAMP by Susie King Taylor: This was required reading for my Emancipation and the Afterlife of Slavery class, and while there were certain sections of it that I really liked, the book as a whole was kind of boring. The author's experience as awhole was interesting and I'm glad I read it, but the book itself wasn't for me. ★
