I am absolutely relishing these long days, and dreading when we swing back around the Sun and it gets darker earlier. Even as far south as I live, there is still a hint of light at 9 p.m. and I love it. 

Here is what I am reading this week. 

American Eclipse by David Baron

Who is excited for the eclipse!? I am. We live very near the path of totality so we are going about 2 hours north to make sure we get to see the complete solar eclipse this August. So I’ve been reading up quite a bit on the history of eclipses. This book has been the most interesting one so far. Baron tracks dozens of these shadow hunters — likely and unlikely — as they traipsed across the untamed American west.

Frankenstein Dreams, edited by Michael Sims

Michael Sims always does a fabulous job of finding and editing collections of Victorian stories. This one focuses on early science fiction, inspired by Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. It’s a great selection of little-known stories by well-known authors, as well as tales forgotten to history.
