Friday Reads 2/12/21

Hello. Sorry I've been MIA this week. I've been going to doctors and just taking care of myself for awhile. I haven't really read much this week either. I'm reading too many books, honestly, and I kind of stalled out. Here is what is on my stack.

Les Miserables by Victor Hugo - Of course. I broke 900 pages this week. The end is almost in sight.

Reader, I Married Him by Tracy Chevalier - I started this. I've read 5 or 6 stories. I'm enjoying them so far.

A Fatal Grace by Louise Penny - I think I might have read 35 pages of this one. It's good, I'm just overwhelmed.

The Fuck It Diet by Caroline Dooner - Someone I know who lost 80 pounds credited it to this book, so I ordered it. So far, I'm at the part where it says we should be eating 3200 calories a day and limiting our bodies to 2000 calories is putting them in fat storage mode because they think we are in a food shortage.

The Undocumented Americans by Karla Cornejo Villavicencio - It's time to read the next 3 sections of this book for a meeting on Wednesday.

Coming up

What We Talk About When We Talk About Books by Leah Price - I nabbed this from the library today because I want to read it, like right now.

The Deep by Rivers Solomon - I also have this from the library that is due soon. It's very short. I got it to boost my reading numbers quickly when needed.

We are in the middle of an extended cold snap. We are experiencing Lake Effect Snow although we are easily 30 miles from the closest lake. Maybe from the river? Who knows, but it just snows constantly. Of course, everything iced over first, because Oklahoma. In other news, we are expected to get a foot of snow on Sunday night. I braved the streets to go get our medications today, but there aren't any options for grocery delivery before Monday, so I may have to find another route for that. I'm a little stressed about these things, so we'll see what reading happens.
