Check in Thursdays: Week 30

Watching... Summer Olympics start this Friday! I'll be avoiding spoilers and cursing NBC TV coverage of gymnastics all week.
Listening... Nothing notable or new...finishing up the The Penderwicks at Point Mouette audiobook though.
Reading... Finished both Is Everyone Hanging Out Without Me ? (And Other Concerns) by Mindy Kaling and The Fault in Our Stars by John Green. The former was really funny and smart and I'd totally want to be friends with Mindy Kaling but I think I'd be too lame for her. The latter lived up to every bit of its hype! John Green writes teenagers like no one else and even though I've never been in the situation that these characters are in (or even been close to anyone who has), it just felt so...true. I couldn't put it down. Anyway, next up, getting back to Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can't Stop Talking and also have The Art of Racing in the Rain on the Kindle. (All from the library of course).

Watching... Step Up 4 Revolution TOMORROW!!!!  And summer reality TV finales -- The Bachelorette and Love in the Wild. Oh and this video is pretty fantastic. Watch it!
Listening... Nothing new for me this week, too. Feeling rather nostalgic, actually; especially for Dizzy Up the Girl by The Goo Goo Dolls. :)
Reading... In the middle of 3 out of the 6 library books I have right now. The Rick Riordan one mentioned last week, Botticelli's Secret by Marina Fiorato, and The Lost Years by Mary Higgins Clark.  Perhaps the problem is none of the books have really drawn me in so I just keep starting something else. Oh well, will probably finish 'em all off over the course of this weekend.

Been meaning to read The Fault in Our Stars. Glad to hear positive things about it.
