“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).
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!
Thinking of making a pasta salad for lunch. Chickpeas, avocado, cucumbers and maybe some salmon.
Looking forward to:
The kids’ naptime later!
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.
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.
