It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good Monday morning! Thanks for stopping by. I had a good week of reading last week. I went on a business trip at the beginning of the week, so I got to read on the plane both ways, and in my hotel room in the evenings. I still only got through one book while on the trip, and started a second, which I finished when I got home.

I wrote up my review of Middlesex by Jeffrey Eugenides finally. I really enjoyed it. I also read and reviewed City of Dreams by William Martin last week. And I finished reading Scent of the Missing: Love and Partnership with a Search and Rescue Dog by Susannnah Charlson,. I'll get my review up for that one this week.

I also reviewed a couple children's art books in my What My Children Are Reading post.

Currently Reading
I'm starting Are You There, Vodka? It's Me Chelsea by Chelsea Handler tonight. This is my August book club selection.

Up Next
I'm going to move on to Gerry Tales by Gerry Boylan next. Two humorous books in a row. Hopefully it will be a fun week!

What are you reading this week? This meme is being hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  1. I like the title of the Chelsea Handler book...intriguing.

    Hope you enjoy your week.

  2. The best thing about flying is the chance to get some uninterrupted reading done! Have a great week!

  3. Looks like you had a good week. I am totally all about reading on a plane.

    Hope you have a wonderful week this week too.

  4. Flying is the perfect time for lots of reading! You're trapped anyway (and often delayed these days), so it's the perfect excuse to lose yourself in a book - especially if you're traveling alone and without the kids!!

    I'll have to go check out your review of Middlesex - it's one I've been meaning to get to for ages.

    I've heard lots of good things about "Are you there Vodka, It's Me Chelsea" - you have to at least admire the title (Judy Blume was a childhood favorite)!

  5. Julie I will be interested in your thoughts of the Are You There Vodka It's Me Chelsea..... my book club mentioned it last year but we have a rule about not picking hard covers (cost and all). So it may come up for vote again when it is in paperback.

    Have a super week of great reads! :D
