Reading The North Water and it's everything NYT said it was.  Complex but straightforward, and the guy can tell a story.

Got this from the library, almost done with it. Laugh out loud funny at times, other times merely mildly amusing.

The Will to Change: Men, Masculinity, and Love by bell hooks.

Ain't no party like a bell hooks party cuz a bell hooks party dismantles the patriarchy for everybody.

A year and a half later, finally getting around to reading some of the books we got for our wedding. A friend of ours gave us an autographed copy of this one. Just started it, but so far it's pretty good (but very dark).

Not yet, but just wanted to post somewhere that I'm hyped because the new John Darnielle novel and the debut novel from George Saunders come out like a week apart from each other in early/mid February.
