It's Monday, What Are You Reading? (1/8/17)

Hosted by The Book Date

After a few inches of snow on Thursday evening/Friday morning, we're back to normal around here, relatively speaking, which means that I have no excuse to be late for work today! 

Thankful for a (mostly) clear path on Saturday morning, I enjoyed getting out into the cold weather (it was 16F degrees when I began) for a long run; I would normally listen to an audiobook but, I have to honestly report, I'm currently obsessed with the Reality Steve podcast since I am a follower of The Bachelor television series. It is a guilty pleasure, especially on days when I run on a treadmill. 

I did finish My Not So Perfect Life by Sophie Kinsella last week and it was just as delightful as I'd expected; I'll post more in the future and, if you're a fan of her work, be sure not to miss this one!

I've got to catch up on my Social Justice Book Club selection, Hope in the Dark by Rebecca Solnit; it's not that I don't enjoy it, I've just not dedicated the time to it. My plan is to set aside time each day this week so that I can enjoy some of the group discussion. 

Instead, I spent time hunkered down with one of my most anticipated debuts of 2017 (if you missed my post on this, you can find it here), The Most Dangerous Place on Earth by Lindsey Lee Johnson; I am almost finished with it and the writing has been captivating and highly entertaining. 

In addition, I've been consumed with my library loan of Forks Over Knives - The Cookbook; I love borrowing cookbooks so that I can decide whether I want to spend the money on them. 

So far, I have found lots of great plant-based recipes that I'd like to try; I've already made the Kale Salad with Maple-Mustard Dressing and the Peanut Noodles with Broccoli and they were both delicious. Are any of you plant-based eaters? We are just beginning our journey along the transition to a (mostly) plant-based diet, so I'll be searching for good resources.
