April in Chicago was unpleasant this year so it was nice to be taking these vicarious vacations. I covered six of seven continents in the seven books I read. There weren't any real duds in the bunch, and I learned about a lot of interesting places I'd never want to actually visit.
May's theme is work, which may be an odd choice for someone who hasn't held a steady job in nearly a decade. I plan to read about all sorts of occupations from the unusual to the mundane. Who knows, maybe I'll find a new career. Or more likely I'll be reminded how good I have it as a homemaker who can sit around and read books about work.
