Still an English Major at Heart

In the midst of my Fulbright year in Spain, I had an excess of time to read in 2019. Summer brings with it a few more hours to read in Omaha before beginning law school in the fall, when reading will be focused on cases and no longer the fiction of my choice.

Below lies a chronicle of me reading my way through 2019. I claim to be no book expert, just a retired English major.
