It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
January 12, 2015 26 Comments
“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what we’ve read the past week and are planning to read next.
My reading week
I’m still reading Look at Me by Jennifer Egan. It’s okay, but not brilliant. I love reading about the main character, but there are other characters getting the lime light and I don’t care so much about them. I’m also reading a Dutch book, Tegenpool by Pauline Slot, about a trip to northern Norway (yes, just what I’d like to do myself).
I wrote a review (in Dutch, sorry, I hope to translate it soon!) of The Bone Clocks by David Mitchell.
Next on my reading list is Us by David Nicholls.
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who like to get more active. Last week, I did three days at 7,000+ steps, three at 5,000+ and one (uh-oh) below 4,000. My goal is 5 x 7,000 and 2 x 5,000 per week. So, a fail. Except that I’ve changed my goals on the basis of the first two weeks. Let’s keep it realistic. Everyone deserves a quiet day at home! So, the new goals are: 3 x 7,000+, 3 x 5,000+ and one day off. Hey, isn’t that just what I did last week? 🙂
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge was easy last week (the first week of the challenge): For every meal, replace some food with two portions of fruit or vegetables. I managed this quite easily, except for one or two meals where I had just one fruit or vegetable (I just forgot about the second one). I’ll continue this into the new week, as the new challenge is also pretty easy: Beverages will be limited to water, coffee, tea, and milk – and can only be naturally sweetened with a little honey or 100% pure maple syrup. As this is more or less what I drink anyway, I’ll be fine. I don’t take sugar in my coffee or tea and take normal milk in both. Easy peasy!
This coming week… Another quiet week. But… there is the ‘Evening with David Mitchell’ on Saturday, that I’m really looking forward to. His book, The Bone Clocks, was a mixed read for me, and I’m keen to see what he has to say about it.
