This post has absolutely nothing to do with being poor or anything else that’s depressing

Nah, still not talking about money issues. Instead I’m going to tell you about books & reading I am doing and want to do.  Ok? Just this once. I’ll get back to talking about being poor tomorrow probably.

True to my polygamist style of reading, I’m currently reading a few books at the same time right now.
The Nix by Nathan Hill
Speak by Laurie Halse Anderson
  The View from the Cheap Seats: Selected Nonfiction by Neil Gaiman
and
Weapons of Math Destruction: How Big Data Increases Inequality and Threatens Democracy by Cathy O’Neil .

I always sign up for way too many reading challenges and while I probably do end up meeting the challenges, I end up losing track and don’t update anywhere online. So, this year I’m scaling back my reading challenges to just Book Riot’s Read Harder 2017 Challenge ,and What’s In A Name?, a challenge I’ve done every year since it began (I don’t know when. Years now). I guess I’m off to a good start, at least with the Read Harder challenge. The Nix  works for “#2. read a debut novel” and Speak is “#10, read a book that is set within 100 miles of your location”.

I might sign up for the Books N’ Tunes Challenge, too but this is how I read every single book so I guess it’s not much of a real challenge. I sometimes make an entire playlist based on the book I’m reading.

I also picked up this Monster Knits for Little Monsters book yesterday at the library and I want to knit all the things in it. I’m having a hard time narrowing it down to one or even five. It looks like squishy little grandbaby will have a solid hat collection for next winter (planning on knitting a size up for him to grow in to).  Lucky boy.

I wonder if I can find a reading challenge that involves crafty books? Hmmm…..
