I got home on Tuesday afternoon, with enough time to collapse into bed for a nap before our home-town book event that evening. I spent Wednesday tooling around doing errands with my mom, and I spent yesterday knitting in a fog of exhausted contentment.

Kim is on page 90 of 316 of The Last Policeman: I'm loving this book so far. It's a pre-apocalyptic crime novel! Which could totally be gimmicky and gross, and totally isn't.
