What are you currently reading?
Currently reading Kindaichi (still/of course). I'm on the third case of the second series and honestly have no memory of this one at all. (This has actually been the case with a lot of them!)

I'm also still reading Prisoner of Azkaban, though I've slacked off a bit on my lunchtime reading and I don't think I read more than a few pages this week.

Also also I am reading a physical book. (What!?) You see, all around my neighborhood are a lot of these Little Free Libraries in it and we always check them out when we walk by. So far Carla has picked up quite a few books from them, but I hadn't until last week. I picked up two books that looked interesting and I read one already (which I will talk about below) but have not yet read the other. I plan to take te one I read back today (to a different Little Library than the one I took it from, just for fun) but I decided I'd also like to try and read more of the books on my shelf so that I can leave them in these libraries when I'm done.

So to that end, I picked a book off my shelf that seemed like something I could read fast. XD It's a graphic novel called Vietnamerica by GB Tran and I think I must have read about it years ago on [ profile] 50books_poc. I've only read a bit so far, but I'm enjoying it. (Though I have found some of the lettering choices to be a bit hard to read. For some reason parts of it are done in cursive...)

What did you recently finish reading?
I finished reading my first actual book of the new year! One of the books I picked up at the aforementioned Little Library was Mindy Kaling's Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me? (And Other Concerns). I really did not enjoy The Mindy Show and gave it up after four or five episodes (the love interest was just so annoying!) and I've never seen The Office (though it's on my list), but I really liked this book a lot! It's hilarious and a super easy read, which was just the thing I needed to get me back into (hopefully) the habit of reading things other than manga. If you like humorous autobiographies, I'd definitely recommend it.

What do you think you'll read next?
Mainly just continuing to read the things I talked about above, but I will probably give Kindaichi another break after this case and try to read something else manga-wise. Not sure what, but I have a bazillion files on my ipad, so there's a lot to choose from. :D
