On my nightstand: Suite Francaise. I really like Irene Nemirovsky (David Golder is a very wonderful, if bleak, read), but I’m having trouble getting into this one. Time to leave the World Wars for a while and find a new reading theme. How about English classics? On an e-reader! I’ve made the jump, and while I still prefer paper books (easier for flipping back and forth, underlining, dog-earring, and just plain cozier), the e-book has improved my commute 110%. It’s also just perfect for waiting rooms – no need to touch outdated, germ-coated magazines! I haven’t tried buying any e-books yet (just reading through some of the 100 books already on there), but so far it’s very user-friendly, and ideal for travelling. I can have dozens of hearty books with me, and less than 200 grams.
On TV: Vikings. It’s really quite violent, but I love this show! And the music in the opening credits is great.
We've also started watching Arctic Air. It's a Canadian show set in and around Yellowknife that follows a cast of characters who work for a northern airline (um, called Arctic Air).
On my MP3: Nothing – I don’t need it, because my e-book has a built-in MP3 player. :D Heehee.

On my plate: I’m working my way through It’s All Good, a cookbook by Gwyneth Paltrow that I received for my birthday. Watch for some brownies and a pro-Gwyneth tomorrow. You can check out some of the recipes here.
In my mug: Cinnamon Orange tea, my new evening drink.

In my agenda: Not a thing. We’ve got a long weekend coming up, and we’re planning on doing nothing.
On my to-do list: Yogurt-making and apron-sewing, two things I've been wanting to do and just haven't done, for no reason in particular.
