Much like I expected it would, the weather here went from somewhat chilly Spring to “Woah, it’s almost 90!” in the span of about a week. While it made for good reading and romping time in the backyard with the pup, we were somewhat limited by our ability to withstand the heat. My husband worked all weekend and I knocked out a bunch of the things I had to do (primarily groceries and yardwork) pretty quick, which left me with some time to tackle long overdue, tedious blog tasks. Broken links, tags, things I keep trying to pretend don’t exist. I’m nowhere near done, but I did get a good start.
I’m still reading The Improbability of Love (it’s a long one!), but started and finished So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed by Jon Ronson for my book club. There’s a ton to turn over with that one. I don’t agree with him on everything, but the book definitely had me going back and forth with a few of the situations. I’ve also just started Sarai Walker’s Dietland, which is wickedly smart and strange so far. I can’t wait to see where it goes. Appropriately enough, its cover is a bit of a play on the typical chick lit cover, no? We’re discussing that term, what we think it means and how we feel about its use over at The Socratic Salon if you’d like to join in.
