Most of my reading is through newspapers I pick up during brief grocery runs while navigating restrictions of this pandemic. There's also personal email from family and friends, reading for the day job - screen reading of articles, fact sheets and technical support fixes.

After I unpacked and shelved wine boxes of books from our move to a Read more of this blog post »
