After a long long wait, the Eagles finally won the Superbowl!! I’m not a real football fan, but it was great seeing the home team win. I’m usually in it for the commercials and thankfully they didn’t disappoint this year. That Tide campaign was just genius!! On to my Reading RoundUp:
This week’s Reading Roundup!
Work Book (for lunch time reading):
The Snow Child by Eowyn Ivey – First of all, I think the author’s name is gorgeous. Her novel is just as enchanting. It’s a bit of a dark fairy tale. Set in Alaska, an aging couple who long for a child seem to create a young girl out of snow.
The Zookeeper’s Wife by Diane Ackerman – The movie which came out last year introduced me to this book. It’s a World War II novel set in Poland. A zookeeper and his wife use their zoo in Warsaw to help the persecuted Jews. Unfortunately, parts of the book ramble on and the story isn’t keeping me interested.
The 100 Foot Journey by Richard C Morais – I’m on a bit of a kick lately for any book that’s food related. I picked this one up at a book sale a while ago, but finally decided to get around to reading it.
One Match by J.Y Chung – Goodreads giveaway winner right here!! This is now the second book I won through their site! The concept is a brand new dating service that matches you with exactly one person, who you then have to meet face to face to discover their identity.
From Around the Web:
Library Goals – This couple from Austin, TX has amassed 10,000 books in their personal collection. We’re…5% of the way there! Maybe they’ll let us visit when we head to Austin this month : )
Netflix Top 10 Shows New Members Watch First – I’ve seen…parts of just one of these haha.
Funniest Super Bowl Tweets – Twitter is really only worthwhile during major events.
