Happy Monday! The last week has felt like a busy one. I participated in Bloggiesta, but I didn’t get as much done as I had hoped. I also made the 2.5-hour drive home to visit my parents and my sister for a few days. It was a nice visit, but it made for a pretty light reading week.
The only book I finished was Selfish, Shallow, and Self-Absorbed: Sixteen Writers on the Decision Not to Have Kids, edited by Meghan Daum. It was fantastic, and I have a feeling I’m going to be recommending it to a LOT of people through the years. I unfortunately set aside A Death on Diamond Mountain: A True Story of Obsession, Madness, and the Path to Enlightenment by Scott Carney. I can’t quite put my finger on why, but it just wasn’t pulling me in.
And finally, after a few months of reading almost entirely new releases, I’m allowing myself some mood reading! I just started Americanah by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, which has been on my shelf for many months. I’ve heard wonderful things about it, and I’m already falling in love.
