kazzy_cee: reading by the pool (reading)
For me reading is always a pleasure.  I am not very good at keeping a list of what I read, however and the last time I did the 'What am I reading Wednesday' was here on 28th September last year!  However, as I managed to read over 50 books last year I might as well start afresh with a new list for this year.

Under the cut 2017 reading so far.. )

What I'm reading now:
The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking the CEO of The Happiness Resarch Institute in Copenhagen. Describing a very similar way of life to the one we experienced when we lived in Norway (where they have candles everywhere too) where Hygge is embraced with the word "utepils" which means sitting outside in the sun with a beer.  Usually topless if our experience is anything to go by!  It's fun, but if you followed all the recipes in the book you might end up rather fat! I am enjoying reading about the Danish designers though.

I'm also reading
The Queen's Conjuror: The Life and Magic of Dr. Dee: The Science and Magic of Dr.Dee (Science and Magic of Dr Dee) by Benjamin Wooley.  This is mostly because I've never really read much about him and I'm going to a lecture with [livejournal.com profile] daiseechain and [livejournal.com profile] brutti_ma_buoni, so I thought I'd read a bit of background :)

What am I reading next?
I have Agatha Christie on Screen by Mark Aldridge to read through, but it's more of a reference book, so I might not read it all in one go (it uses a teeny tiny type face too and as it's a proper book, I can't make it bigger!).  I also have Purfume A Century of Scents by Lizzie Ostrom whose scent workshops I've been to a few times. Looking forward to that.

In other news - Youngest Cee stayed home from work today as he couldn't breathe last night so he didn't sleep well with the heavy cold he has. As he's not been in his job for long he doesn't get full pay for sick days so his manager has suggested he should work at home tomorrow if he still doesn't feel well so that he gets paid a full day. It's nice they are looking after him.

Positive things for this post - reading and considerate employers.
