On the blog this week…
A Readers’ Workouts July 24 post when I was finally caught up. Check back tomorrow to see if I still am — and join this energetic group of readers who exercise.
More Ireland photos on Wednesday: Wordless Wednesday — Dingle Peninsula Ireland. I would have put some up on Saturday, too, but I was too busy on Friday night watching the Opening Ceremony of the Olympics (Mary Poppins to the rescue!) to process photos.
Two book reviews:
And, yesterday, I announced my participation in the Pin It and Do It Challenge and Camp NaNoWriMo in August: Pin It and Do It and Camp NaNoWriMo. I didn’t mention it in that post, but I think we can be pretty sure that with all that plus the Olympics, my reading and reviewing will slow to a crawl.
I finished Searching for Whitopia by Rich Benjamin in time for the Diversity Book Club meeting and we had a rousing discussion — talking until the library kicked us out because they were closing. And, then, more conversations in front of the library!
Bro-Magnet by Lauren Baratz-Logsted was the ebook I had downloaded on my phone. I saw the ending coming a mile out, but that really just added to the fun. When is he going to figure this out?
I finished The 4-Hour Workweek and kind of want to turn it over and read it again. I might, but read it at my desk this time so that I can work through things more rather than just think about them.
I finally started reading The Color of Tea by Hannah Tunnicliffe, but I’m afraid it’s going to go slowly with the Olympics taking up much of my evenings.
The book I started for my lunch-time reading is The Good Food Revolution by Will Allen with Charles Wilson. I’m surprised how engaging it is and the way it touches on all of my top reading interests.
I need to load a new book on my phone…I went with Written in the Ashes by K. Hollan VanZandt because I’m on a blog tour (my first one!) for that in September. Since it takes awhile for me to read ebooks, I probably should be starting on that.
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.
