I'm slowly chipping away at Before the Devil Breaks You, one chapter (sometimes two!) every night before bed. My new audiobook to listen to while working on puzzles is This is Where I Leave You. A friend gave me the book last year, but I don't have the energy to read more than one physical book at a time right now so I downloaded the audiobook from OverDrive.

Geraldine, are you liking Barbarian Nurseries? It looks like something I might like!

This week I'm re-reading Ruth Reichl's first two memoirs, Comfort Me with Apples and Tender at the Bone. She's such a great writer, and food writer, and discusses her difficult family so beautifully.

Mirkat | 209 comments I started Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones . The author uses "atomic" to mean "small," since atoms are tiny building blocks. I kind of wish he'd called the book "Nano Habits." Because in my brain, "atomic" is "explosive."

So, I'm still early in the book, but for those of you familiar with The Power of Habit: Why We Do What We Do in Life and Business , James Clear's aim is to build on that book and provide actionable steps for habit formation.

Yes its a very good book. It's from the point of view of a young lady who is an immigrant from Mexico. It gets across her point of view illuminates what's been happening in this country relating to present day immigrants . It's relatable and tells what her life is like now in the USA and also something about what it was like in Mexico. Hector Tobar's writing is illuminating

I'll have to look into this. The Power of Habit was a great read, and I'm always interested in learning more about how we form and break habits.
