So while we were lounging and Greyson was enjoying Batman cartoons, David and I read. I love that we can lay around and read together, and it's totally comfortable. Like, that's what we do. He has his Nook, I have mine, and we read in peace with breaks to talk and share fun sections of our books.
This past week I finished two books, and how long has it been since I could say that? A while! I knocked off Confessions of a Sociopath by M.E. Nelson and The Last Girlfriend on Earth: Stories by Simon Rich.
Late in the week, I started Soonchild by Russell Hoban for a buddy read with a group of my bloggy friends who were nice enough to ask me to join them! I managed to finish it up on Saturday morning, and I'll be writing a review of it soon.
I'm currently reading The Crimson Petal and the White, by Michael Faber, along with Heather (re-reading, listening) and Patti from Peppermint PhD. I will be reading it for A WHILE since it's 800'ish pages long. But it does seem like it'll be a quick, enthralling read.
I also dug into the non-fiction choice I've really been itching to read: The Whole Fromage: Adventures in the Delectable World of French Cheese, by Kathe Lison. It's been forever and a day since I read a non-fiction foodie book, and this one fits the bill. I am about halfway through and I adore it! Lison is funny, I love her anecdotes, and the history of France and French cheese is really informative and fun.
Up next: Who knows! Maybe I'll go for another wild card like The Last Girlfriend. It'll probably be something short until I make more headway into The Crimson Petal and the White.
In case you haven't heard, The Estella Society is hosting a readalong of John Irving's A Prayer for Owen Meany. We'll start on July 2 and wrap up on August 13. Read at your own pace and check in when the spirit moves ya! #MeanyRAL
