Read: Crook Manifesto by Colson Whitehead ★★★★☆ 📚
More Harlem corruption, criminality, horror & fun. 3 linked episodes across the 70s. Wanders into back alleys & backstories in an engaging way.
Read: So Late in the Day by Claire Keegan ★★★★☆ 📚
Very short, disturbing & moving tale.
Read: The Woman Warrior by Maxine Hong Kingston ★★★★☆ 📚
I read this decades ago and was not disappointed by this re-read.
I really like the iOS micro:bit app as do my class. I was intrigued by the data feature when it came out but had not used it. Delighted to see this:
Selecting this option lets you retrieve data that has been logged during a data-logging session with the micro:bit. This is only available with Version 2 micro:bits.
Read: We Begin at the End by Chris Whitaker ★★★★☆ 📚
Murder mystery with arms & legs. Despite the rather unbelievable teenage, character, the twists and convolutions kept me reading and engaged. A nice distraction.
Read: The Marriage Portrait by Maggie O’Farrell ★★★★☆ 📚
Enjoyed the dip into the strange world of the 1500s Italy. Not quite as absorbing as Hamnet but I was engrossed, even though the murder is announced at the start I had my hopes up.
Really enjoyed listening (on Huffduffer for 30 days1) to Preparing for ReclaimPress from YouTube even though it is not really in my wheelhouse (maybe a link to my Glow Blogs role). The possibilities for WordPress keep on growing. Jim talks about moving DS106 to this infrastructure. I still think DS106’s WordPress setup (as is micro.blog) is a great example of how we should run educational community.
