No Time to Spare is the curated and collected blog posts of Ursula K. Le Guin. Thoughtful, fun, rebellious—Le Guin’s musings are all of these things and more. Le Guin began blogging in her eighties, and the collected posts run from 2010 to 2016. The posts aren’t in chronological order, but rather are arranged according to theme, in sections. Thoughtful and thought-provoking, scattered with musings on her new cat, many of Le Guin’s observations are even more pertinent now than they were when she wrote them. I thoroughly enjoyed No Time to Spare and recommend it to fans of Ursula K. Le Guin and to those who’ve yet to discover her. I’ve known about Le Guin for some time but this is the first book of hers I’ve read, and now intend to read many more.
I will continue this blog, but right now I’m operating at the limits of my mental bandwidth (thank you, 2020), and I just am not having the mental anything needed to read fiction, not even the books I’m rereading. I’ve been mainlining nonfiction though, in the form of both books and podcasts. Next week, I’m hoping to write a review of the latest nonfiction book I finished, No Time to Spare by Ursula K. Le Guin. I highly recommend the book, if you want to read it but don’t want to wait for a proper review. Good luck.
