Weekend reads, or surviving a weekend with a windchill of negative numbers

The last week of January might be my least favorite week in New England. Today is blindingly sunny and bitterly cold (current real feel of -11). 

So I'm comforting myself with pouring over my seeds and plotting my sprouting schedule, and cuddling with two good reads: Me and White Supremacy: Combat Racism, Change the World, and Become a Good Ancestor by Layla F. Saad and The Heiress Gets a Duke by Harper St. George.

What are you planning this weekend? Any good reads on your horizon?


  1. It has been about 37 in So California which is way, way cold for us. We had snow one day for just a little while and hail a few times. Last night we had a big storm but they were predicting three days of rain and we only had one good night so far. I could not live in -11 temps.

    I am really looking forward to my next two reads, both review copies. Klara and the Sun by Ishiguro and Murakami's new collection First Person Singular.

  2. As usual hot and humid here though promises of rain have not materialized. My reading has taken a backseat as I've got immersed in a series Broadchurch and cant seem to let go.

  3. Whew! I hope y'all are keeping warm. The temperature went way down last night, so I had my ceiling fan up all the way, and kept waking up cold and being like "you're not cold! stop it! go back to sleep!" Update, I was very cold; it got cold outside. :P

    I am reading Joan Vinge's The Snow Queen, which has been on my list for so so such the longest time, and it... is not grabbing me yet! I have a bunch of books on the go that aren't really grabbing me, so hopefully that will change soon and I will fall in love with something.
