It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
February 16, 2015 8 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 Ablutions by Patrick DeWitt which I really enjoyed (4.5 stars). Very different from The Sisters Brothers! I’m currently reading a Dutch dystopian book, Weerwater [Water Fort] by Renate Dorrestein. She’s one of my favorite authors. I missed her book presentation because I was ill, so I bought the book as soon as I could. It’s great! I’m also reading Man o man [Man, Oh Man] by Mascha de Groof, another Dutch book, a nice, easy going chicklit.
Then next it’ll be The Strange Library by Haruki Murakami and The Shut Eye by Belinda Bauer. But that’s what I said last week, too! 🙂
Our book group met on Friday and we discussed … everything but the book! It was fun, though. We did a book game were we all brought a book we liked and ended up with another book. I got (stole! That’s part of the game) Rules of Civility by Amor Towles. Yay!
Just one review. Slaap zacht, Johnny Idaho [Sleep Tight, Johnny Idaho] by Auke Hulst – in Dutch. 🙂
I have a small pile of to-be-reviewed books. It’s not as high as the to-be-read pile, but I must try harder at reviewing!
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who want to get more active. Last week, I did quite well. I had two days of 10,000 steps and two of 7,000. The other days I was ‘resting’. My goal is 3 x 7,000 and 3 x 5,000 per week, and one day off. So, this is not bad.
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge was easy last week (the sixth week of the challenge): Eat no light or diet food, including low-fat. That was a walk-through for me, as I don’t tend to eat food like that, except semi-skimmed milk and I’m not changing that, not even for this challenge. The coming week, we have to eat wholemeal everything. That’s OK, too, I think!
What are YOU reading this week?
