Mood Tune: Pumps and a Bump by MC Hammer (YouTube). Don't ask.

Anyhoo, lazy loungy weekend after Friday's Brand New Heavies concert.
But today, after lunching in Pasadena, stopped by one of the chain bookstores to see what's new. As if I need another book to read. The to-read pile is dozens high already.

But good thing I browsed. Found a new one by a recent favorite.

A novel about a single mother in Arizona, who has a deadbeat ex-husband and a young daughter. Already read the first chapter, and in true Darnella Ford writing style, she keeps it heavy and humorous at the same time.

If you haven't heard of her, check out her website. And then also check out her previous books -- Rising and Crave. Crave, I read a couple years ago, and I loved it.
