It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Happy Monday! How was your first week back to a normal schedule after the holidays? Ours was challenging in terms of getting up in time for school, but overall it was nice to get back to normal!

I had a busy week here last week. I did an interview with Lou Aronica, publisher and author of the new novel, Blue, which published on Saturday. I finished reading Blue and will be putting up my review this week. I really enjoyed it!

I posted a few comments and questions about my new Nook, so if you have a Nook or other e-reader, check it out and let me know what you think! Speaking of the Nook, last week I said I had started A Secret Kept by Tatiana de Rosnay. Well, I soon found out that the free download was actually an excerpt, not the full book. And I just wasn't enjoying it enough to buy it at this point. It was okay, so I may purchase it later, or borrow it from the library. But I decided to move on to something else for now.

Finally, I got back to my weekly What My Children Are Reading post after a few weeks off.

Currently Reading
I'm currently reading When Pigs Fly by Bob Sanchez. This is a book I discovered over a year ago, but I just haven't gotten around to buying it until now. I found the e-book for $5, so I downloaded it and am finally reading it!

Up Next
I'll be moving on to my January book club selection, Picking Cotton by Jennifer Thompson-Cannino, Ronald Cotton and Erin Torneo. We have our meeting on the 20th, so I need to get reading!

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. Hi Julie - I will have to look at your Nook post. I do have questions about mine. I was in Barnes and Noble on Saturday and was hoping to talk to the Nook representative but they were busy the entire time I was there so I thought I will figure it out. :)

    Come visit if you get the chance. I've been curious about eReaders. I'll have to actually check one out soon.

    Have a great week!

  5. I love it when parents post what their kids are reading. My 15 yo DD snatched up my ARC of The Girl who was a Beatle and read it in one day. I have a Kindle and I am still trying to figure it out (I got it in October)Happy Reading

  8. Sounds like you have some good books going lately!

    Good luck with your book club book. I just finished Year of Wonders by Geraldine Brooks for my library book discussion.
