Place // On the couch in my sister’s apartment in Minneapolis (change of location!)
Eating // Easter candy, the breakfast of champions
Drinking // Off-brand black tea
Reading // Despite making a list of books I want to read RIGHT NOW, I ended up reading something entirely different: The Outsourced Self by Arlie Russell Hochschild. I also want to start reading The Round House which I am going to have to return to the library really soon.
Watching // I didn’t watch much of anything this week. I went with some friends to see The Croods, which I enjoyed. My sister and I also watched the first half of the BBC adaptation of Pride and Prejudice last night. I think we’re going to try to finish it this morning before we head to my grandma’s for Easter dinner (we’re not a religious bunch, so Easter is mostly about food and family for us).
Listening // I got bored with Outlander this week (I know, I know) so I started listening to a short nonfiction audiobook, Contagious: Why Things Catch On by Jonah Berger. It’s fun, so far, and a nice change of pace from the epic fantasy/romance audiobooks I’ve been listening to.
Promoting // I loved this post from Jenn (The Picky Girl) about a reader’s responsibility in which she argues, basically, that a reader’s only responsibility in this whole big publishing monstrosity is to read. Not to buy or promote or tweet or review, just to read. I loved it. Go read it.
Enjoying // The discussions that are happening in Book Bloggers Do It Better, a Google+ community organized by Becca (Lost in Books) and co-moderated by Byran (unfinished person), are fantastic. If you’re a book blogger, I encourage you to check it out.
Loving // The almost, kinda, maybe spring weather! It’s still not warm, by any stretch, but I did get to walk around outside yesterday without a winter jacket — that’s progress!
Wanting // The warm weather to continue! My sister and I went shopping yesterday and, in the flush of not reezing temperatures, I almost bought myself some new sandals. We’re so close.
Anticipating // Easter dinner, time with family, cuddles with my sister’s kitten, and more Pride and Prejudice.
Happy Easter, everyone! What are you reading today?
