What Have You Been Reading?

Since we already have one of these for tv and movies, I figured we might as well have one for books .

I’ve been reading Oliver Twist and listening to The Conquest of Bread audiobook. Enjoying both so far. Except for learning that Charles Dickens was apparently an antisemite. Ah, Victorian men. Kropotkin, on the other hand, seems like a completely nice guy and Idk why I haven’t gotten round to reading him before.

Haven’t read Oliver Twists in years… Don’t like Dickens so much.

Right now I thought I’ll do something for my brain and read “A brief history of time” by Stephen Hawking

read the tribe revolution book as thinking of fan edit to fix errors and plot holes.

Good luck with that.

Currently reading Stiff: The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers by Mary Roach

If you guys have Goodreads you can add me there I’m AgentOrange it’s a hot mess but it’s easier then keeping up with what I’m reading here.

reading Stephen King at the moment … i wasn’t much into reading since dad dies. i tried to come back different times but i never found fun in it again.

Now one last try and it works better, even when i can’t do it every evening. a start is done and i read 2 or 3 evenings in the week.

Two or three evening in a week sounds great, especially when you are just getting back into reading. Establishing a routine that works for you is the key.

Finished Oliver Twist and am about to start One Hundred Years of Solitude. Excited because I’ve always wanted to delve into magical realism/Latin American literature in general but never quite got round to it.

Have been sentimental today and read “Five feet apart” again😭

Last week I also read ®evolution again, to get myself around how much the story really showed similarities to that old Fanfic I wrote right after s4 O.O

Right now I am undecided what to read.

The only books I took with me to isolation a month ago and hoping to start reading next week.
Because it’s been years and years since I’ve read The Handmaid’s Tale (and not sure if I’ve read it in english, so I bought the new edition) and I want to re-read before sinking my teeth into Testaments.
Atwood’s beautiful beautiful use of language is a balm to the soul.

Also wow, 30+ years and we got a sequel.

After reading a pretty technical film thing I’m back on my normal reading list.

Right now it’s The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot. While I live the book I feel really bad for the family and it almost makes me feel guilty that I’m reading this book and they still haven’t been treated they way they should. It’s still really interesting.
