I figured out what has to be the best barometer of just how little spare time I have these days: Ron Rash's new novel has been at the top of my TBR pile for over a month. And what have I been reading instead? you ask. A lot of stuff like this. Hooked I am. I guess because the baseball season was an utter flop and football has turned out to be even worse, I'm left watching politics as if it were some sort of fantasy sports league. It's never good when you lose sleep when your preferred candidate drops a point in some obscure daily tracker.
Just another reason why this election can't come soon enough.
