Reading Right Now! (268)

What I'm Reading Right Now! is...

Lake of the Ozarks: My Surreal Summers In a Vanishing America by Bill Geist -- I'm still going with my NEWTs Magical Readathon, even though I fear that I won't complete all my levels. I had a book that really slowed me down, so I'm hoping I can finish strong.
For my Arithmancy Level A, I have to read a non-fiction book. I'm going to be totally honest, non-fiction is not my genre of choice. Most times I would rather live in a fictional world then read about a real life story. So I scanned my shelves for something that I could read for this challenge and came across this one. I won this last year in a Goodreads Giveaway (as you can see, I'm awesome at reading all my arcs on time *wink wink*) This was short and it looked interesting, it fit the prompt, so I said I'm reading it.
I'm enjoying it. It's not so much a linear story as it is listening to someone ramble on about the past. Sometimes it can be funny. Sometimes, I wonder what the point is.
I think another reason that this book kind of interested me is that I have a lot of family that comes from Missouri. Great grandparents and great great grandparents, so not family that I've maybe met or anything, but still, I have Missouri roots! I do have a cousin that lives in Missouri though. Kansas City, Kansas is where my grandparents live, but that's right near Missouri. Anyway, it has a pull because it's where many of my ancestors lived.
I'm enjoying it so far, and it's pretty quick reading.

So that's what I'm Reading Right Now! What are you reading?
