It's Monday! (10/12/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
Last week, I finished The Story of My Life by Helen Keller. I read only the autobiography, not the letters, etc. included in the book. I was kind of let down. I expected it to be more inspiring than it was. More complete thoughts later.
Killing Reagan is not what I was expecting. I've read several books on Reagan, including his memoir, An American Life, but O'Reilly presents a very different Reagan than the one I knew. It was disappointing.
I was not disappointed, however, with 180 More. This is one of the best poetry books I read this year.
This week, I'll finish:
Finding Atticus, oh my dear heaven. I don't know how it will end, but so far it's been quite a ride. It constantly undoes me and builds me back up. This might end up in my year's top ten. It's that good.

I've started:
Last week I began one of the oldest TBR books on my shelves, Lynne Truss's Eats, Shoots & Leaves. I'm not very far in yet, but I'm enjoying the feeling of solidarity of another picky-about-punctuation person. And it's kind of funny--in a very British-y way. 
Last night, I started How Eskimos Keep Their Babies Warm. I love parenting books and books about other cultures, and it seems like ages since I've read either one. This book has been on my TBR for so long, so I'm happy to have begun.

 Whatcha reading?
