In My Reading Life
Bad news. I DNFed 2 books last week. They were The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel and Three Moments of an Explosion by China Miéville. I started both of them in December and was having a really hard time paying attention to them. I finally just gave up on them and reread Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. Then I read Angel Catbird, volume 1 by Margaret Atwood and Johnnie Christmas. Right now, I’m reading Sex with Kings: 500 Years of Adultery, Power, Rivalry, and Revenge by Eleanor Herman, and I See Reality: Twelve Stories about Real Life.
In The Rest Of My Life
Last week was not the greatest for me. My aunt died from cancer while Trump was being inaugurated. My dog injured herself. And, for reasons I don’t understand, I can’t get my prescription refilled. So . . . yeah. Feeling kinda sick right now.
But, let’s do this. Five things that made me happy last week:
- The blog now has a discussion library! It’s up there ^, right under the header. All my brilliant opinions about stuff are in one place.
- I finished my 2016 reading statistics post. It took forever because I had to do math and make graphics. I hate both of those things, so I’m proud of myself.
- I didn’t cheat on my diet or slack on my exercise. I was tempted to be lazy last week. Deep breaths and back away from the cookies.
- Book trading.
- This commercial from New Zealand. When my diet is over, someone needs to park that churro cart in my driveway.
Take care of yourselves and be kind to each other. See you around the blogosphere!
