i still have this on my shelf, unread! wha-whaaaaa. (sad trombone.)
like you penny, i am also feeling like my brain is exploding with ALL THE BOOKS! i've had a really busy week, so haven't had time to make a plan for my reading... but i hope to do that over the next couple of days.
i definitely will be starting our Riffle book club's June read, americanah. this is a re-read for me, but i am looking forward to it.
as well, i have my in-person book club next friday, so have to get the monsters of templeton read.
because you have loved it so much, i really want to get to eleanor oliphant soon!!
oh...Monsters of Templeton was such a great read for me! I really do hope it's a great read for you too!
I too will be reading the first scheduled part for Americanah - I started it and was really enjoying it - so I'll finish up to the first part in the schedule this weekend too! My Friday night is going to be one where I am on my own, alone, quiet and yahoo! Kids will be out of the house, hubbie is working an afternoon shift - so it's just ME. So I plan on setting myself up with a nice glass of wine, sitting out on my patio for the first time this week, and enjoying the total alone time with my books.
I also have Americanah on the go for our book club... come join us!!
And I am reading, for my in-person book club meeting tonight, The Monsters of Templeton, by Lauren Groff -- I am really enjoying this one, so far. Have to get the last bit read before the meeting. #NoPressure.
I don't know if I have read anywhere particularly unusual... though, as a bookish introvert I tend to always have a book/my kobo with me when I leave my house - in case of emergencies. Haha!! I have read while at parties or in bars/restaurants. And I was totally that kid who would read a book while walking.
Good morning Jennifer! I've been trying this week to get in reading time, it's been a bit hectic so it's been scarce, but I did start The Practice House which so far has been pretty good, although I'm not very far into it at all.
For the summer, my favourite reading spot is on the patio but if we're away, nothing beats sitting on a comfy chair overlooking the lake now does it? I haven't been able to do that in a couple years, but it's bliss when it does happen!
this week has been hectic for me too. my reading time was pretty scarce as well, though i did finally finish the monsters of templeton, and really liked it! it went over well at my book club gathering too -- everyone was quite happy with the novel and they all want to read more from lauren groff. YAY!!
oh!! yes!! reading by water is so lovely. i am lucky to be able to visit my brother's cottage, and i love sitting out on the dock (under an umbrella, i am a shade-hound!) with a book, a nice drink, and snacks!! so perfect! when i am at home, i love sitting out in the shade of my front porch while reading. (also with snacks and drinks. heh!!)
i have to pick a new book to read this weekend... though it's going to be a busy weekend with work and other stuff, so i am not sure how much reading time i will actually manage.
Yes, today is the holiday day for our Canada Day Holiday! Happy #Canada150! Poor planning as always on our part doesn't have us doing anything or going anywhere exciting to celebrate though.
I just finished reading, last night One in a Million Boy - which was good, just a sweet story overall.
Today I will return to Deafening by Frances Itani. Ha! Perfection for Canada Day! She's a wonderful Canadian author - queen of a quiet and lovely read. I read Tell by her and fell in love with it. There are many Canadian authors that I love. But if we want to go with maybe a comparison read to Tell - perhaps it might be The Age of Hope by David Bergen.
