What are you reading?


Twenty Chickens for a Saddle, Robyn Scott’s memoir about growing up in Botswana, is my book club’s April selection.  While I’m enjoying her vivid descriptions of daily life, I wish there was more of a narrative arc to keep the story moving along and to hold my interest.  I’m only halfway through, so we’ll see if that resolves itself.

Tina Fey’s Bossypants is unsurprisingly hilarious, but I am also enjoying her honest insight on women, careers and motherhood.  This is a fun read and has had me in laughing out loud more than once.

I’m also reading Just in Case: How to Be Self-Sufficient When the Unexpected Happens. When taking an evening stroll, do you mentally evaluate each house you pass for how secure it will be in the zombie apocalypse ?  No?  Just me?  Okay then.

On the blog front, I’ve recently discovered The Financial Diet from Chelsea Fagan.  “When you become smarter about money, everything gets better.” – so true.  The Minimalist Pixie Dream Girl: Who She Is And Why I Hate Her and Financially-Sponsored People Need To Be Honest About Their Shit are two good posts.

Also, Permission to Kick Ass: Granted is a must-read from Pamela Wilson.


How about you?  What are you reading right now?  Please share in the comments.

    Thank you for the book suggestions! I’m currently reading All the Light we Cannot See by Anthony Doerr. So far the prose is absolutely beautiful and the story is interesting. I actually have my entire reading list for April up on my blog, if you’re interested!: https://intrusionsofbeauty.wordpress.com/2015/04/09/reading-list-april-2015/

    Side note:are you located in Portland? I just moved here, and I’m already madly in love with Powell’s. I actually got my copy of All the Light We Cannot See from there.

      Hi, Natalie! I’ve heard good things about All The Light We Cannot See. Thanks for sharing your list.

      I lived in Portland for years but now we’re in Hood River. (A day trip to the Gorge is a must-do if you’re new to the area.)
