Ok, so I'm still reading for sure. Just with the new job and all I haven't felt like writing much lately. I finished Harry Potter and loved it. Loved it so much. Enough said. There are plenty of amazing reviews out there. Find one and read it and that's probably some of what I would have said only less eloquently. I also read Affinity by Sarah Waters. Didn't really like it that much. Kind of dull, boring and odd. Which is strange because I have really enjoyed everything else that I have read by her. So, that and now I'm on to The Fellowship, a non fiction book about Frank Loyd Wright's architecture "school" that he and his wife ran on their property in Wisconsin. Kind of a combination cult, school, slave labor, religious/cultural reform movement. A bit slow to start but its picked up about 150 pages in. Lots of ego, lots of odd religious/metaphysical belief, dancing and of course a bit of art talk. Now 150 pages in we get to the sex, manipulation, and flat out cruelty of Wright and his third wife Olgivanna. I'm looking forward to it.

I read something else between Harry Potter and Affinity but for the life of me I cannot remember right now what it was. I'll get back to you if I recall. More later, as my summer reading program draws to a close.
