It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Well it's been quite a week all around. I finished Born A Crime (reviewed on Friday) and A Very Expensive Poison (coming this week). So that leaves room for some new reads!

I'm full-bore into Selection Day, by Aravind Adiga, which is a darkly funny story about two boys being raised to be cricket champs and their ambitious father. One day a new kid comes on the scene, Javid Ansari, and something is going to happen next.

On my bedside table is Food City, by Joy Santlofer, a history of food manufacturing and trade in New York City. I am fascinated to learn that NYC has always been a place where people bought their food versus cooking it themselves; this is certainly reflected in today's culture where you can easily, if not inexpensively, exist with a kitchen used only for storing leftovers. It's a fun and absorbing read.

At the gym I'm working through A Fifty Year Silence, which I'm enjoying, and reading Bad Feminist at home. Which everyone should read.

I'm leaving comments turned off for a while but I hope you're having a great week with lots of great books.
