I finished my third book last night (literally - like 2 am... I can't even recall when was the last time I was up that late because of a book). I had a feeling that I will like Mary Roach and I am so happy that I do, and now I intend to read her other books as well. Packing for Mars was all kinds of interesting, captivating and inspirational. I'm so happy I read it. It also counts for my TBR Pile Challenge 2014 as an alternative choice, and that is not a bad thing.
Next I think I will pick up Why Be Happy When You Could Be Normal? by Jeanette Winterson. I would have picked Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, but Jan is still reading it. Why Be Happy... is a shortish kind of book and also from the TBR Pile Challenge list, so I'm hoping I can get through it during the weekend. I also noticed this would be my third non-fiction pick this month (and year), which is already more non-fiction I read in total in 2013 :p

Flavour of the day: That perfect, moist-from-the-inside crispy-from-the-outside oatmeal-raisin cookie Jan brought me from Subway.
