Weekly Reading Roundup
September 30, 2013 11 Comments
Phew! I finished the big editing job I was working on. Now, it’s some smaller projects this week. Also, I will be interviewed by a Master student (studying Media) who’ll ask me all about reading and blogging. Furthermore, I’ll doing a short course at the tax office to learn all things tax-related to do with my business and in the weekend I’ll be doing a two day Business Bootcamp course. I did one before, in May, and straight after that, I started my business. Now that that is up and running, I want to learn a few more things.
Reading-wise, things are looking up. Rather than the miserly two books a week in the past few weeks, I read THREE books! Well, that’s an improvement. I usually read 3-4 books per week, so I’m almost back to schedule.
Books I finished in the last week: 3
Not a Drop to Drink by Mindy McGinnis. A post-apocalyptic story about a girl living with her mother on a farm near a pond. They shoot everyone that comes near, because water is very, very precious. 5 stars
The Donor by Helen Fitzgerald. A father finds out that his twin daughters have kidney disease. He can only give them one kidney, so he goes to find their mother, who has disappeared long ago. 4 stars
A Beautiful Truth by Colin MacAdam. A childless couple adopt a chimpanzee. Raising Looee is difficult and isolating. It just can’t end well. 4 stars
Books I’m reading & planning to read
Cartwheel by Jennifer Dubois. Also a family story, in Argentina. A young USA woman is arrested for murder and her family flies over to visit her. 4 stars
