It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. Hope you had a great weekend! I'm planning a big week of reviews and reading, but for now, here's what I did last week.

I didn't get a lot of adult reading done, but I did read through Fifo "50 States" by Hayley Rose. It's a geography book for kids. I'll be reviewing that one tomorrow for the blog tour. And I finished The Story of King Arthur and His Knights by Howard Pyle, which I had been reading with my son. I also read the first Club Penguin book, Stowaway! Adventures at Sea, which I picked up for my son. I was curious about it since I love read-your-own-adventure types of books when I was a kid. It was fun reliving my youth with that one!

I put together a monthly review of my reading and reviewing for February. I also celebrated Read Across America Day with my kids.

I wrote reviews of Final Vector, a thriller by Allan Leverone, and Elephant Talk, a nonfiction book for kids about the way elephants communicate by Ann Downer.

I also shared a few books my kids have been reading in my What My Children Are Reading post.

Currently Reading
I'm still reading Zero Day by Mark Russinovich. It's an engaging thriller but I just didn't have a lot of time to read last week. I also started My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor, but haven't gotten very far with it yet.

Up Next
I may pick up Serena by Ron Rash next, but I haven't decided for sure yet.
