It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
With Bloggiesta on top of the other things that kept me from not reading last week, I’m still not reading much. I finished nothing, but did start another new book. So, here’s what I’m reading right now.
Do I Look Fat in This? by Jessica Weiner. I wish I could hand this book to every woman in America. Too many of us bond with other women by talking what Weiner calls The Language of Fat. She has specific ways and words to use to counteract that impulse.
Garden Artistry by Helen Dillon. We will be visiting this garden and meeting this gardener during our Ireland trip. The book was published in 1995, so I feel like I’m looking at the garden from 17 years ago (and it was about 17 years old at that time) and will get to see how it’s changed on our visit in a few months. Very excited!
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.
I have just put the “Fat” book on hold at my library. Think its a great concept – can’t wait to read it. 🙂
Happy reading this week!
P.S. I just wanted to let you know – I attended your blogging program at MLA (which was excellent) and have been keeping up with my blog since! Thank you so much for introducing me to the blogging world – I have made so many friends and I love talking books!!

Oh yay! I’m glad to know that program helped. Book bloggers are as much fun as librarians, aren’t they? A little known secret of both groups!
I want to read the “fat” book, too. Sounds like one that all women should read.
