What are you reading? Wednesday

Ah Wednesday. Only two more days to the weekend. I am feeling jealous this week of all of those people who can spend their summers with their kids while mine go to daycare and I work.

Luckily George R.R. Martin created a world so horrifying that it makes me happy that these are my worries and I don't live in Westeros. Everybody gets hurt when people play the game of thrones.

It has drawn me in, it really has. But so horrifying and no one is safe. Medieval Earth was pretty gruesome I think but I hope it was better than this. They didn't have any wights or dragons anyway.

I am finally on Book 5, A Dance with Dragons. I don't know how many years it will be until the next one comes out- and the next and next after that.

My kids, luckily, are keeping my spirits up with a much happier book, Hour of the Olympics (Magic Tree House #16). It's their little introduction to the Olympics before I go a little crazy this weekend. Actually tonight with the first women's soccer game, Canada vs. Japan. Who do I cheer for?????

Are you going Olympics mad? Are you having your own reading Olympics?


  1. I haven't read any Martin since Sandkings! Nice to see he's branched out.
    I am not a big soccer fan but I do have a soft spot for Nadeshiko (a few of the players hail from my former High School). I, too, am torn as to who to root for. Maybe a draw??

  2. I am reading The Hunger Games and am really enjoying it.

    Since I'm commenting after the big Canada/Japan game I don't have to answer...I don't really mind who wins though I'd like Canada to win the medal race.

    No reading Olympics here.

  3. My city did a viewing of the soccer game and I desperately wanted to go, but a middle of the night game isn't really conducive to being awake and alert at work the next morning, is it?

    Have you found other sports or Olympic-themed books to read with your kids over the next few weeks?

  4. I just started Game of Thrones--I've got a lot of catching up to do!

  5. That's quite the mix! I've never read any Martin books, although I've heard so many good things. Happy reading!
