What are you reading Wednesday?

What are you reading this week?

The kids are sick this week so I have my day job plus looking after sick kiddos plus bleaching everything they have come into contact with. But I do lay down with them for 10 minutes at a time or so, so it's the perfect time to break out a book of short stories.

I am reading Coming Home, a book of short stories by a number of writers from the Northwest Territories, as chosen by John Mutford, the host of the Great Canadian Book Challenge, and Judy McLinton. I have especially enjoyed "Haunted Hill Mine" by Cathy Jewison, can't wait to read the rest of the book.

My kids need comfort and crawling up in a futon with an old-timey book is definitely comfort. So we are going with some Little Golden Books. I Can Fly, with the charming rhymes from Ruth Krauss, definitely hit the comfort spot.

What are you reading this week?

Do you comfort read?


  1. Awesome! So excited that you're reading Coming Home.

    I'm reading Judge Dredd: The Complete Case Files 01 and to my son, Mary Pope Osborne's Christmas in Camelot (a Magic Tree House book)

  2. I definitely comfort read. I curl up in bed with a book (quite often a manga these days actually) and if I can wrangle T-J into taking care of Xander I may even dare to have a tea in bed. Sometimes I comfort read in the bath if I'm sore all over. Comfort reading is the best.

    Right now I'm not just reading, I'm beta-reading! I'm beta-reading the novel of one of my critique group friends. Xander is obsessed with his Disney/Pixar Christmas story collection. He carries it around half the day and keeps pushing the book at me because he wants me to read the Toy Story tale from it.

  3. I definitely comfort read and it's not kidlit either! I go back to the books of my younger days, the ones I practically know by heart, like Anne of Green Gables or anything Georgette Heyer wrote.
