Books: What I’ve Been Reading

Winter in Canada. It sucks. I have complained so much about it (and I just can’t stop). It puts such a damper on my mood and motivation. I’ve tried to embrace it in the past, but, really, it just doesn’t work for me. I’ve been coping with the cold, dark days by watching a lot of television (I’m sort of completely sick of television now, too) and by reading more books (rather than just my usual stack of magazines and list of blogs).

In addition to about a dozen academic books (for a fun-for-me project that I might share one day), I’ve read the following…


Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn


The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

rosie effect

The Rosie Effect by Graeme Simsion

I’d recommend all three books. Gone Girl was a slow start for me, but once I got into it, I couldn’t stop reading it. It was amazing. The Rosie Project and Rose Effect were both amusing and interesting. Because one of the main characters is a professor, I could relate.

I’ve also been reading a whole bunch of money and tax books. Here are some of them:

    I went to see Gail when she presented at the Kitchener City Hall last summer, she is exactly the same in person! I have been hearing good things about the book, The Girl on the Train. I think I will pick that one up next…after all my french class reading of course!

        Clearly I need help, I just used google translator to check that! It’s French 101 and it’s been a looooong time since I last conjugated verbs 😀
