Summary -
Not my best reading week, but I enjoyed finishing off the stories about Four from the Divergent series.  I also really enjoyed the audiobook of Flying.  I finished my steroids this week and felt a jump in energy and threw that energy back into working out, thus less reading time than when I was in my flare up.  A migraine on Thursday night led to reading Vogue (just needed something mindless yet enjoyable, but I learned Vogue is not mindless, but actually a really amazing magazine).  Hope to balance everything out this coming week with more reading, but the sewing bug is biting and also with at least two nights of practice to take Jacob to and I want to go to at least one night of Logan's, I see my reading continuing on a slow pace.  Oh well, at least I love  football and can use practice time to crochet, it's easier to look up and watch while crocheting (finishing up a pattern so it's a lot of repeat rows) than it is to read and look up.

My Amazon Unlimited expired over the weekend, and though I really liked it, I am already subscribed to Scribd and Next Issue so that's enough money spent on reading books and magazines each  month so I let that go. I think Scribd is a better service so I'm keeping it and I love to read magazines and Next Issue lets me read a variety and it suits my moods well.

Have you subscribed to any book/magazine services?  If so which are your favorites?  I'm always open to new things :)
