“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.
The last week I read…
I finished three books. &Sons by David Gilbert (click on the title for my review), Dit kan niet waar zijn [This Can’t be True] by Joris Luyendijk, a non-fiction book about banks, and The Shut Eye by Belinda Bauer, a thriller with some supernatural elements.
I’ve just started in Bal Masqué by Elia Barcelo. My final Spanish author for this month. Not hugely interesting to start with, but I have great hopes.
Next up it’s
Hausfrau by Jill Alexander Essbaum.
If I get round to it, the new Herman Koch, Geachte Heer M. [Dear Mr. M.].
#Fitreaders is a challenge for all readers (and everyone else, really) who want to get more active. My goal is 3 x 7,000 and 3 x 5,000 per week, and one day off. Last week, I was not far off this target, so I am happy with that.
The Cut out Processed Food in 14 Weeks challenge for last week, was Eat local; at least one meal per day should contain something locally grown. I did go to a farm shop but was not convinced all their stuff was local (bananas, nuts? Not in the Netherlands, for sure!). But it was nice not to buy from a big supermarket. I got some things, but not enough for seven days. I may make it a habit to visit them once a week or so. This week’s challenge is to cut out sweeteners, which I’ll skip. I’m concentrating on the local thing.
What are YOU reading this week?
