It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
February 2, 2015 7 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 finished reading a Dutch book, Slaap zacht, Johnny Idaho [Sleep tight, Johnny Idaho] by Auke Hulst, which I thought was very good. At the moment, I’m reading my book group book, Funny Girl by Nick Hornby. This is a great read, too. I’m enjoying it a lot.
Next up it’s Ablutions by Patrick DeWitt, the author of The Sisters Brothers, a novel that I loved a lot and, if there’s time, The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami .
The Village by Nikita Lawani
Us by David Nicholls – in Dutch.🙂
#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, one at around 5,000 and one below 5,000 (but not far). My goal is 3 x 7,000 and 3 x 5,000 per week, and one day off. So, not good and not bad. The weather was awful, though (excuses).
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge was not so easy last week (the fourth week of the challenge): Eat no take away or deep-fried food. We hardly ever eat take-away food, so that wasn’t the problem, but I do find oven fries very handy on days that I’m busy (or lazy). So yes, that happened. Plus some potato crisps… Me bad! The challenge for the new week is to eat two new whole food items. I’m thinking quinoa and something else (not sure yet).
