it’s monday! what are you reading?

It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

STILL reading The Worst Hard Time by Timothy Egan. Totally didn’t finish in time for the library group discussion, and after missing the discussion anyway I didn’t really feel like I needed to rush through it anymore. I’m having trouble reading on a screen lately, too. I spend all day at a computer! Just don’t want to look at screens in my free time much lately. I need time to unwind and unplug after work (and after my computer work at home for my second job AFTER my FT job workdays. Sigh. I love being busy but this time of year can be a little much sometimes!)

So I’m slogging through The Worst Hard Time a bit but I did manage to finish The Martian by Andy Weir this weekend. I bet if I had a little more free time I could have read it all in just a couple of days; it was a pretty quick read. Not perfect, but I enjoyed it. Hoping to have a blog post up on my full thoughts this week!

Last night I started The Round House by Louise Erdrich. It’s not part of any of my challenges. But I just have all these beautiful books I bought as “retail therapy” during my moving trauma in 2013, and this one jumped out at me last night.

What are you reading this week?

    • Awesome! I’m still in the middle of The Round House and Worst Hard Time, and now because I have a longer drive to rehearsals (moved from a church close to my house to one about 25 minutes south) I started listening to This Dark Road to Mercy by Wiley Cash on audio. I just can’t help myself! I miss free time :-/
