I'm on Readcation Monday through Wednesday of this week. I hope to do a lot of reading, but I'm in the process of a huge decluttering project, and that has kind of taken over my life lately. Even when I set aside time to read, I find myself gravitating toward a closet or bookshelf that needs going through instead. I'm also doing a bit of online shopping for pieces to replace what needs replacing around the house (lamps, etc.) and a fair bit of daydreaming. Getting rid of so much really refreshes one's mind.
Last week I finished:
What I'll be reading this week:
I thought I've Been Thinking... would be a good "advice" book, but it's very simple and impersonal. Very little depth. There's a hold list for this at the library, so I decided to give it up for someone else's enjoyment.
My Kindle mix-up:
I've heard Lauren Graham's Talking As Fast As I Can was fun on audio, so I'm listening to it, even though I've only recently seen a few episodes of Gilmore Girls and I've never watched Parenthood.

Well, we've reached the halfway point in the reading year, and I'm sitting at 91 books read. Last year at this time I was at 67. This was another eclectic month of reading, with everything from politics to decluttering advice, from child abduction and espionage to presidential biography, from marriage essays to ice hockey.
