It’s Monday! What are you reading? (January 27 2014)

itsmonday“It’s Monday! What are you reading?” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila at Bookjourney to share with others what we’ve read the past week and planning to read next.

Hello Monday, how did you get here so fast? The weekend was a blur of shopping (we’re trying to put up curtains in the kids’ rooms – currently they’re in separate rooms but when the baby’s older, we hope to put them in one room) and cooking (I made some baked rice with broccoli and sausage ahead of time so that I don’t need to cook dinner for the next few days).

Currently(-ish…)

Reading:

burymyheart
Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee: An Indian History of the American West – Dee Brown
A rather big book (509 pages)! But pretty interesting so far.

jerusalem
Jerusalem: Chronicles from the Holy City – Guy Delisle
Delisle’s books are always lots of fun. I love how he always incorporates his daily life with the kids into them.

Eating:

Toasted baguette

Drinking:

Milky tea

Watching:

Top Gear – I’m not really a car person but this BBC show is always a fun watch as they get up to all kinds of nonsense. Car-related nonsense that is!

Cooking:

Thinking of making a pasta salad for lunch. Chickpeas, avocado, cucumbers and maybe some salmon.

Looking forward to:
The kids’ naptime later!

Last week:

I read:
genius
Genius – Steven T. Seagle, Teddy Kristiansen (Illustrations)
A story about a quantum physicist facing some difficulties at work. But it’s also about his family (a typical teenaged son – hilarious conversation about girls and dating – and a smart younger daughter. And his more down-to-earth wife), oh and Einstein makes an appearance. Which made me think of this great stop-motion video.
chocolatewar
The Chocolate War – Robert Cormier

There are actual chocolates in this book, which surprised me (I thought it was a euphemism). Yeah it’s one of those should’ve read them books that I’m now curious about as an adult. And obviously didn’t have a clue about.

What are you reading this week?

  1. I haven’t read The Chocolate War yet. I will be interested to see what you think of it!

    I think sometimes, as readers, we are still surprised by how many books we have missed over the years!
