This past week, I finished:

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is super cute and very slice of life, which is a thing I dig.

The Storied Life of A. J. FikryThe Storied Life of A. J. Fikry by Gabrielle Zevin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

When I first started this book, I didn’t think I would like it, but I very quickly changed my mind. This was really sweet (but not twee) and very engaging. Great characters.

Last week, I posted:

I’m posting about fannish pursuits for the A to Z challenge, and I have been keeping up with it rather well. Here are the posts I’ve made so far (and, yes, I don’t even want to talk about how I’m a fan of exercise. I’m just going with it.):

As of today, I’m reading:

Necessary Endings by Henry Cloud

Yes, still with Necessary Endings. Maybe this will be the week that I finish it?

I also have three books from the library on my Kindle, but I haven’t decided which one to start. Do I go for a tried and true author? The second book in a series that promises to be fun? Or something probably a little more grounded and serious? It all depends on how I feel tomorrow. I don’t want to say what the three books are because I may feel like something completely different when it’s time to choose. SUSPENSE.

Happy reading, everyone!

    I just finished Junot Diaz’s The Brief and Wondrous Life Of Oscar Wao. I’m slowly working my way through a book of African Folktales. My night-time Kindle read is for the ReadNobels challenge. It’s The Wonderful Adventures of Nils by Selma Lagerlof. Tomorrow I go to the library to pick up a book of poetry by Brecht that I’d had on reserve. Do you read much poetry?

      I don’t. I enjoy poetry a lot, but I usually don’t reading it unless I’m teaching it.

    I just listened to a podcast with Faith Erin Hicks and I am definitely eager to read more of her books.
