It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? (August 1, 2016)


Hello from Virginia! We are here on the other side and settling in as best we can without Internet or furniture. I’m writing this post on my phone – so it’s going to be brief! Our moving truck arrived in Buffalo on Thursday and we spent the day frantically finishing our packing and cleaning our apartment from top to bottom before rolling out ourselves on Friday morning. Since then it’s been a whirlwind of driving, figuring out logistics of all sorts, and making multiple Target runs (4 in 36 hours!) which hasn’t left me with much reading time.

No pictures this week, but conjure up that pretty Angela Thirkell, Wild Strawberries, because I’m still reading that. I’m enjoying it, but having a hard time squeezing it in. I’m also reading Elizabeth Jane Howard’s The Light Years, on my kindle, and Middlemarch on audio. I thought I would make a lot of progress on that last, during our long drive down here, but it turns out that Nugget is not a fan. 16-month-olds don’t like George Eliot – who knew? Not me.

Up next this week, I’ve got a reading round-up for July coming, and my August diverse kidlit pick. Check back!

What are you reading this week?

    • I’ve never read anything by Jeannette Winterson yet. I would like to, since she’s such a classic – but I think I might be a bit too shy!
