It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Last week I finished Samantha Irby's We Are Never Meeting in Real Life, as well as A.S. Byatt's Babel Tower, which I didn't anticipate finishing for a while. But as it turned out all I needed was to sit around in holding for an afternoon without going to set.

So this week I've started a couple of new books. On the fiction front, I'm reading Nancy Mitford's Love in a Cold Climate, a kind of Downton Abbey-esque romance romp set in pre-WW2 Britain among the gentry.

I also started Aziz Ansari's Modern Romance for my audio book, which I'm enjoying. It's 80% sociology, 20% comedy and very entertaining when you listen to Ansari narrate it.

But the biggest thing for me is that I decided to participate in a readalong of Don Quixote, hosted by Nancy of the blog Bookfoolery and Ryan of the blog Wordsmithonia. They're calling it Tilting at Windmills, which is appropriate! I have tried to read Don Quixote before and faltered after about 150 pages. That is the first week's portion so I'll have to do better.

And that's pretty much it! Hope you're having a great week and I'd love to know what you're reading.
