It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, that is guaranteed to add to your reading list.
This week is going to be a repeat of what I was supposed to read last week. I am still waiting on one to come in from the library, although I think it got stuck in transit. I cancelled the hold and started a new one, just in case. So now hopefully, it will actually come in. Last week was super busy for me - I started subbing and I am not used to really working outside of the house. I came home on the days I worked and just crashed out, and in the case of one job where I had to get up at an ungodly hour, took a huge nap the next day too. I think I am getting used to it though now, and am getting smarter about which jobs I accept right now.

Read Last Week:
A Rough Guide to the Heart by Pam Houston: I love Pam Houston. She writes the most heartbreaking, beautiful essays. I had forgotten I had ordered this book when it surprised me by arriving last week. I immediately started reading, to realize, I can't read her while pregnant! Some of her essays make me sob on a regular day. Add hormones to the mix and it was a horror show. I will have to wait to finish this book, although I do love her work.
Reading this week:
The Little Paris Bookshop by Nina George: I started this last week, and have really enjoyed what I have read so far!
Hand to Mouth: Living in Bootstrap America by Linda Tirado: I am starting this book as well. I am sure I will take it slowly due to the material, but I read an essay from it that was really well done.
The One Way Bridge by Cathie Pelletier: I chose this based on the cover.
And of course, if that elusive book that will not be named finds its way to me, I will read that and not start a few of these others.

My husband and I are toying with the idea of cutting our cable plan to basic and relying on Hulu Plus and Netflix. Has anyone else done that? I really wish you could pick and choose your channels, a la carte style. Anyway, we started watching Vikings, which I was reluctant to watch and now I love, and also 30 Rock, which I find hilarious!
