Who’s Reading What: March 2011
20 March, 2011
It’s been a while, hasn’t it? Lashings of apologies. I just keep forgetting…
So, what’s my family been reading? Check it!
An Artist of the Floating World by Kazuo Ishiguro – my Pa likes to read about Japan. He was very impressed with this one.
Picking Bones from Ash by Marie Mutsuki Mockett – I’m just happy my Pa is reading one of the books I left behind at home:)
Pro Theory or プロ論。―情熱探訪編 by B.ing (eds) Tokuma (publ) – my Ma likes to improve her mind since she’s a creative type. This book is all about work and how successful people have made it. She likes her non-fiction.
Daily 15 minute Meditation for Body and Soul or 心と体がスッキリする「1日15分」瞑想法 by 宝彩 有菜 PHP (publ) – my Ma likes to chillax
The Good Women of China by Xinran – my sis likes stories about strong women
Qi Kong by Shifu Yan Lei – my brother-in-law likes his martial arts
Hiccup: How to Train Your Dragon by Cressida Cowell – nephew no.1 loves to read and we all thought the film was magical. I even shed a tear.
The Little Book of Good Manners by Christine Coirault – nephew no.2 is trying to be a good boy
I’ve just finished reading Joe Dunthorne’s Submarine and have started re-reading Steven Erikson’s first Malazan book, Gardens of the Moon (because I must), Henrik Ibsen’s A Doll’s House for A Year of Feminist Classics and am slowly savouring Sandra Newman and Howard Mittelmark’s Read This Next (hilarious).
So what are you and your family reading?
