Subtitled: It is Wednesday isn’t it?
During my trip to BookCon I got the news that I would be moving. An opportunity arose and I grabbed it. Ok…not entirely true. I actually laid awake at night for a few weeks before BookCon watching Schitt’s Creek over and over again while I worried about what to do. After finalizing the decision, I grabbed the whole thing with both hands. In a little more than a month I will be moving to Chicago.
This is why I have been so behind in posting and, frankly, reading! Every time I picked up a book my ‘ol brain started worrying. And, when I wasn’t worrying, I was decluttering and packing. Since I am moving from a bigger place into a much smaller place, I was tossing things and donating them at a rate that would alarm even Marie Kondo. But I missed my books, posting, and most of all reading everyone else’s blogs so, even though July 3rd is nearly over, I am determined to get back to it. So, happy WWW Wednesday! Make sure and check out Sam’s site at Taking on a World of Words and all the other wonderful people who check in on Wednesday.
What Did I Recently Finish Reading?
All of these were the perfect stories for the worried mind. The Proposal was a fun romantic comedy, The Littlest Bigfoot was a wonderfully sweet middle grade story and Fortunately, the Milk was as much fun as anything else I’ve read by Neil Gaiman. All of them will (hopefully) be reviewed soon.
I probably read other things but things were so crazy here I even forgot to log them onto Goodreads.
What am I Currently Reading?
I’m a mess. My Goodreads keeps telling me that I have 7-9 books on my currently reading shelf and so many of them are mere chapters from completion… but I may have packed them. I don’t want to forget them though so I am leaving them there. Here are the books I have in my hot little hands this week.
Factfulness by Hans Rosling is the best and most uplifting book I have read this year. It is full to the brim with facts that prove that our world is actually better than we perceive it to be. It is a soothing balm to my anxiety driven heart. I cannot wait to finish it and read it again.
Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell has been on my shelf forever but I bought the mass market paperback and the print is 7 point font. Might even be smaller than that. Finally, I donated my copy and got a digital version from the library. Whew! I am not far in but it is wonderfully weird.
Finally, I am working my way through all the Neil Gaiman books I own and I am loving Norse Mythology. Great stories told by a masterful storyteller, it is truly a treat.
What Will I Read Next?
One of the books off my massive physical TBR because I cannot take everything with me but I don’t want to give up books I haven’t even had time to enjoy!
Tell me, please!
