It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted by Kathryn at Book Date
Last Sunday, there was snow. This Sunday, it was 73 degrees! Such a wonderful turnaround - we spent the weekend out and about and running around with friends. We are all exhausted but it was a great weekend. We had dinner with friends and babies Friday night, a flea market, sushi and ice cream on Saturday, and Sunday went to Greenfield Village with my brother, sister-in-law and daughter. It was opening weekend and we ran into our good friends as well as more cousins!
Here are my happy guys enjoying the sun.
Read Last Week:
I ended up reading my slow read first! Lol.
The Happiness of Pursuit by Chris Guillebeau: I am reading this with my husband - rather I read it and he is listening to it on audio. I am excited for him to finish because I had mixed feelings about it. It will be fun to discuss!
Once a Rancher by Linda Lael Miller: I am almost done with this book - so far so good!
Reading This Week:
Vinegar Girl by Anne Tyler: I didn't get to this last week so I am excited to start it this week.
Lowcountry Boneyard by Susan M. Boyer: I received a free copy of the first book in this series a few years ago, and really enjoyed it. It is the year of the mystery for me I guess! Maybe it is because the first book I read this year was And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie! Speaking of..any recommendations for my second Christie read? I enjoyed the one I read, and I want to read another but I am not sure which one to choose!
Everything is kind of wrapping up and getting good! The Vampire Diaries, The Originals, Outsiders, Supernatural - not sure what we will do once summer is here; probably hang out outdoors more lol. I think we will try to catch up on the new season of The 100 for sure.
For class this week we watched Indus The Unvoiced Civilization. It is a little more academic and the quality isn't great, but it was pretty fascinating! The people of the Indus region in the Middle East had flush toilets and elaborate water systems about 5000 years ago, which blows my mind. If you are interested I think you can find it on YouTube.
Around the Interwebs;
Just a few links to a few articles I found interesting last week.
Call a Random Swede (I want to do this!)
And this op-ed piece by the manager of the indie bookstore Malaprops in Asheville. It is about the boycott of her state due to the transgender bathroom law that just passed in North Carolina. It was very thought provoking.
