40 Posts in 40 Days: What are you reading?

It's Sunday, and I have not opened a book since Friday. I blame the weather. We had a sneak peek of Spring and we didn't waste a moment of it. We got back into our daily walks around the block and played a lot of basketball with the kids. I am feeling the effects of that tonight. The weekend is over and I'm relaxing with a book.

I finished The Time Hackers by Gary Paulson with my daughter. She thought it was funny that one of characters was always trying to use the time traveling technology to go back and catch famous women bathing :)

I'm still reading The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris. It's taking me some time to get through this one.

A new memoir I'm starting is Growing Up Mostly Normal in the Middle of Nowhere by John Sheirer. The author was also my English Professor in college. I actually had a table next to him at a book event in November. This is the first of two memoirs he has published. He was a great teacher and I look forward to reading his work.

What are you reading?


Kristin : )

PS: I posted this entry from my Ipod, which I have never tried before. So please be patient while I it out.


  1. Hey Kristen! Hope your old prof's book is good, let us know!! I'm currently reading "Bright-Sided" by Barbara Ehrenreich, which is turning out to be the first book of hers that I've read, that I am having some difficulty with. I definitely get her point about being fake-positive, but question some of her examples, although she usually fully researchers her work, so I'm being open-minded so far (less than 1/2 way through). I will be moving on to Gretchin Rubin's "The Happiness Project" after, if only to get a possibly alternative view on this whole "Happiness" issue. :o) See ya on Twitter!

  2. I am currently reading The Hambledown Dream, by Dean Mayes. So far, so good!
