“This is the trouble with history. You can’t see what’s not there. You can look at an empty space and see that something is missing, but there’s no way to know what it was.” Don’t worry, I’m still reading The Power by Naomi Alderman. I find I’m happiest when I’m reading more than one book at a time, so I do. Lately, I’ve also been experimenting with reading across more than one format at a time. The Power is my current Kindle book. In addition to reading before bed, this means I can also sneak in some reading while nursing my baby.
