Weekend Reads is a Goodreads group created by Nici, a booktuber over at LitPixie. Basically book lovers can record a video or write a blog post about what they plan to read on the weekend, and also answer a fun question.
Since Nici hasn’t posted any August topics, I’ve decided to go off track with a topic of my own.
The question for this weekend:
Apart from books (fiction and nonfiction), what else do you enjoy reading?
Great question, me. Recently, I’ve started reading comics and graphic novels, which are a joy. I’d also like to get into Manga but I don’t know if I will. I working up to it. I enjoy reading magazines as well, mainly the National Geographic magazines, New Philosopher, Scientific American Mind, Psychology Today, and the Smithsonian Magazine. I’ve realized that I prefer to read about scientific topics in magazines rather than books. I also enjoy reading long-form articles on the following websites: The New York Times, New Yorker, The Daily Beast, and sometimes Medium.com. And when I have the time, I visit Arts & Letters Daily for others.
What I’m reading this weekend:
I’m continuing with A Clash of Kings this weekend. I’m almost half way through. I would have been further along but I didn’t read much during the first days of this week. I so surprised that I’m as hooked on the book as I was the first time I read it, and that I still don’t like Catelyn. I thought my opinion of her had changed but no.
I also started reading Jason and the Argonauts. I was in the mood for a classic and since my copy of Suetonius’ Caligula has yet to arrive (Grrr…!!), I settled for Apollonius’ poem. I was apprehensive when I began because I thought I wouldn’t be able to handle the language (thinking of Shakespeare) but it’s easy to read and understand. The translator, Aaron Poochigian, wanted to make it as accessible as possible and I appreciate that.
Well, what did you read this weekend? Please share below.
Happy reading! 😀
