I’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? is a weekly event to list the books finished last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finish this week. It was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but is now being hosted by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books.!
Well, I don’t know about you, but reading sloooowed waaaaay dooooown for me this week. Work was the absolute pits. You know how I needed comfort reads last week? I need them even more this week. The worry I had came to pass; my supervisor (who had a [healthy] baby 4 weeks ago today) passed away on Wednesday from double pneumonia. She leaves behind the baby and two other children. And their daddy…well, he ain’t worth much. It’s been sad, tragic…a huge slobbery mess around work and the stress apparently did my reading in. This week is probably going to be even worse with everyone coming down to our office to find out what happened and won’t end until in a bake sale for her family on Friday.
Plus, it’s time to start puttering in the garden again. The garden has been a welcome, and exhausting, distraction this week. But more on that on Saturday.
I did finish one book this week; Kat, Incorrigible by Stephanie Burgis. More on it soon, but I will say now that it was absolutely delightful. A welcome treat. I’m still listening to At Home by Bill Bryson which is omigod fascinating. Really. I wish I could take notes. I almost wish I was reading it so I could take notes, but Bill Bryson reads it and I LOVE listening to him read it. He’s such a great reader! I hope to finish it this week. I started Tender at the Bone by Ruth Reichl this week. I mean, what’s more comforting than reading about food? Right? And it’s great. The food descriptions. On my goodness. They makes me drool. Plus I haven’t read a book yet for the Foodie Challenge. Must rectify.
So, how was your week? I hope better than mine. Read anything good?
