My reading has slowed as other things like gardening, trip-planning, and celebrating birthdays sped up.
I was on track for my exercise goals in my first report for May: Readers’ Workouts May 8 (Check back tomorrow to see if I still am. It will take a fair amount of effort to get there.)
I received and awarded my first ever blogging award: Liebster Blog Award.
For Weekend Cooking, I celebrated my 50th birthday with Chocolate Chip Bread: Weekend Cooking: Chocolate Chip Bread.
I didn’t finish any books last week.
I read about half of Drop Dead Healthy by A.J. Jacobs. I want to finish it, but there’s a waiting list at the library and they want it back. So, I’ll have to pick it up again later. I’ve switched back to Why Calories Count by Marion Nestle and Malden Nesheim, a book I started in April during the Read-a-Thon.
I’m still reading Color Me English, the next selection for our book club. If I’m going to get it back to the library in time for someone else to read it, I’ll need to get through it more quickly. It turns out to be a collection of essays. I’m enjoying it, but there’s no plot to drive me through the pages.
Julia’s Child by Sarah Pinneo is a May selection of the From Left to Write Book Club so I want to read that. I’m wishing for something purely fun, though, so I after Julia’s Child, I’ll pick a romance or a YA novel.
What are you reading?
