Lunchtime Poll: Reading Material

I read in phases. I don’t read any books for a month or two, and then I need to read ALL OF THE BOOKS! I’ll stay up way later than I should and carry my Kindle in my purse with me, just in case I have a few extra minutes to get a chapter or two in.

Right now, I’m reading the Sookie Stackhouse books by Charlaine Harris. ¬†They’re great to wind down to at the end of the night. Sometimes, I like a book that doesn’t make me have to think too much.

So, bookish ladies, what are you reading at the moment?

I’m reading Street Gang: The Complete History of Sesame Street and A Generous Orthodoxy. I tend to pick up about two or three books at a time and be at various points in all of them. Eventually, I finish them all up, or I give up on the least interesting one. I usually have a book with me in my backpack or purse for the wait-times in my day.

I’m reading Such a Pretty Fat by Jen Lancaster. This is the 3rd book of hers I’ve read in a row, so her style is getting a bit redundant, but overall, I enjoy the books as a way to relax before bed. I am also halfway through Some of My Friends Are Black, an interesting book about school integration, but had to put it down for a few weeks b/c I’ve been stressed and have needed a relaxing bedtime book rather than one that makes me think.

In my reading “queue” are Libba Brae’s The Diviners and Bryn’s new book!

I started 1Q84 a while ago, and ugh, some really disgusting stuff starts going on about halfway though. I didn’t know what I was getting into, and I don’t think I’m going to finish it.

I recently read the first few pages of Cloud Atlas, but I feel like I need to sit and read it for hours at a time, and I don’t really have time. I’ve heard great things, though, so I’ll try.
