Happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s Monday! What Are Your Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Be sure to check out her post today to see her selections and the list of links to all the other participating bloggers.
Here are the books I wrote about last week, all related in some way to Valentine’s Day!
- Book Review: WomenHeart’s All Heart Family Cookbook by Kathy Kastan and Suzanne Banfield
- Book Review: Cupid by Julius Lester
- Book Review: The Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts
I’m still reading The Way to Eat by David L. Katz and Maura Gonzalez. There’s a lot I like about how to improve eating in a difficult environment. I’m bothered by how often they say that it is sometimes a good idea to give into a craving. It’s a theory that it is better to eat the craved item than it is eat three things trying to prevent that. I suppose that can work for some people, but it never worked for me. I didn’t get a better handle on healthy eating until I quit giving into cravings and ate what was on my plan, at least for several months. If I really wanted something, I wrote it on the plan for the next day, but there were and are whole categories of processed foods that I choose to no longer eat, cravings or no. And that seemed to be one of the keys for me.
I’ve made some progress on the e-book I started last week, but not much. It’s a Torchwood spin-off book called Another Life.
I started Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods with my reading buddy, Erin. We’re talking about it in the comments of this post: Reading Buddies Discussion: “A Walk in the Woods” by Bill Bryson.
There’s an internet rumor that Borders will be declaring bankruptcy today. I wasn’t sure how that would effect the $200 of gift cards I was sitting on, so I decided the only thing to do was spend them! I have many books to choose from now! I’ll let you know when I make the choice.
