My what a lazy day this has been! I slept sort of late, then later in the afternoon I was reading but I got sleepy so I had a nap! We had thought we might go out today but it's been hot and humid this weekend so we ended up just staying home with the air-conditioner on, and drinking lots of cold drinks.
As for what I'm reading, it's a non-fiction book, Shutting Out the Sun: How Japan Created Its Own Lost Generation by Michael Zielenziger. It's an interesting read and a lot of what he says makes sense but I have to admit it's making me feel rather blue about the state of modern Japanese society. Neither my husband nor I want to settle permanently in Japan and I suppose this just reinforces that. Since it's going a little slowly, I think I may pick up some fiction to read alongside it.
Otherwise this week, I just posted my review of Matrimony by Joshua Henkin and two books arrived in the post, Clouds Over Mountains by Matt Joseph and The i Tetralogy by Mathias B. Freese, author of Down to a Sunless Sea that I read and reviewed last month. They're both review copies and I'm enjoying the fact that I've started to get the odd copy sent to me for review, but I'm beginning to understand those of you with a stack of them that complain about how they mess up your reading plans, especially in regards to the reading challenges. Ah well, it's fun so I won't complain.
For the winners of my BAFAB Giveaway, I didn't have a chance to get to the post office this past week, but I hope to get your books sent out to you this week. Sorry for the delay!
Have a great week, everyone!
