March's religion theme turned out to be challenging. I only finished six books and spent as much time staring off into space as I did reading. I had a hard time getting through The Faith Instinct, and I gave up on another book at the end of the month, When Religion Becomes Evil by Charles Kimball. It isn't a bad book; I managed 100 pages but just couldn't get into it. With a couple days left in March, I decided to forge ahead with the first book of April's theme instead.
And April's theme is... Vicarious vacations! I need a break after all those religion books, and I have plenty of travel memoirs to choose from. Plus I'd really like to be hitting the road for a vacation, but that isn't going to happen anytime soon. So while I'm stuck here in Chicago, I'll tour the world through someone else's words.
