    How's your reading coming?

    How's your reading coming?

    Does it mean "How is your reading going"?

    Re: How's your reading coming?

    It's a casual way to ask whether you're making progress with your reading. I could have asked How's your reading coming along or How's your reading going?

    Now I know that working from home is turning out to be more tiring than working in the office. I'm sorry.

    When you get back to your old routine, maybe you can read a chapter of something during your commute. That would be something to look forward to.

    Yes, they are taking advantage of the situation. They ask us to work at the weekends as well(but I don't do that).

    They will- with things very much in flux, people will try to take advantage.

    What if I put "very much" after "in flux"?

    ... with things in flux very much, people will try to take advantage.

    Does this version sound OK? Or does it sound unnatural?
