Finished since the last reading post
Enlightenment, Seasons Pass (short story) and Unnatural by Joanna Chambers—liked the last-mentioned least, but would happily read more about David and Murdo in the other books; Germany: Memories of a Nation by Neil MacGregor which was good but it didn't feel that it added that much to having seen the exhibition originally; The Lady of the Rivers by Philippa Gregory, which, it turns out, I had read before but completely forgotten about; Swimmer Boy by Jay Argent, which was another terrible free ebook; Kirkkaus by Riitta Jalonen (in Finnish) about Janet Frame the author from New Zealand, which was a birthday present from my auntie that I didn't get round to reading when I was over at Christmas, so picked it up during my summer trip—I think I was resisting reading it because I didn't want to read it, which probably contributed to not liking it.

Currently reading
The Kingmaker's Daughter by Philippa Gregory and The Daughter of Time by Josephine Tey

Kickstarter question

Does anyone know how to set up a Kickstarter or GoFundMe or something? The plumber is here for the fifth time in two months and I am going broke trying to pay the bills. This is not hyperbole. My credit cards are getting maxed out by home repairs and plumbing issues, and I cannot save anything from Social Security because I’m trying to pay more conventional bills as well. As things stand, I'm going to need help by the end of the year to clear some of these bills. I'm not going to be able to do it on my own.

I fucking hate this house.
