This wasn’t a very good reading week for me. I had monstrous allergies Monday – Thursday that made me hate the world. I suffered through the work day then parked myself on the couch to watch TV as soon as I got home. Reading was too much for my brain. Thankfully, by Thursday evening I started to feel better and Friday I was feeling my usual self – just in time for me to start reading Mrs. Dalloway for the Classics Club Spin.
At work I ‘curated’ a Funny Ladies book display. I don’t get to do displays very often because they aren’t really in my job description as the youth services librarian. The librarian who normally does them, however, was on vacation so I grabbed the opportunity to fill an empty display and decided to highlight books by female comedians such as Tina Fey, Chelsea Handler and Sarah Silverman. It’s been pretty popular and I even decided to read a couple of books from it myself – Bossypants by Tina Fey and Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? by Mindy Kaling. I haven’t finished either of them yet, but so far they are both very funny. I think I prefer Mindy Kaling’s brand of humor, though, and get more of her cultural references. They are good, light reads for when your soul needs silliness, which I think mine definitely does lately.
One week from today is the beginning of Mary Stewart Reading Week! As the time draws near I am getting very excited to see what everyone chooses to post about. I still haven’t quite decided what I’ll be reading. I’m wavering between Wildfire at Midnight, Nine Coaches Waiting and This Rough Magic – they’re all tempting me. I might just end up reading more than one book next week.
And this reminds me – I haven’t thanked my friend Charles yet for designing the MSRW badge/logo – thanks Charles!
I’ll be back sometime this week to post some mini reviews – see you soon and happy reading.
