It's Monday What are you Reading-is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
First of all, my twitter account was hacked. Thank you to everyone who sent me a message and sorry to those that were DM. Yeah tomorrow is MLK day. A holiday from work. Yeah, Yeah Yeah. I have been in trial since after Christmas so the break is quite welcome. A little biking, a little reading, maybe some cooking, playing with the kitties and of course a reflection on what Martin Luther King had hopes of achieving.
This week I read More than Words Can Say. You can can catch my review. It was not my favourite book. I also finished off Day After Night by A. Diamant, the story of four young orphaned teenage Jewish women held in a British camp in Palestine and their rescue (excellant story) and A Train in Winter the story of 320 French women who were accused of being part of the Resistance and shipped off to Birkenau. As much as I love everything France, I am disgusted at how they rounded up the Jewish people and members of the Resistance, doing the Nazi's dirty work.
For Christmas I received Plenty by Ottolenghi, a Mediterranean vegetarian cookbook. Earlier in the week I made a tofu dish that was delicious. Tonight was a carrot salad. There was more than that for dinner.
I also pulled down Babycakes from my shelves and was rereading the recipes.
I have started reading Vaults of Power and listening to A Good Year by P. Maynard.
I also received Across Many Mountains which I cannot wait to start reading. I am really hoping to clear some books off of my shelves. So what is my plan. I will read library books as they come in on the hold shelf and alternate between reading my books and review copies I have agreed to read.
