It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I'm running very late this Monday morning. I hope you had a wonderful weekend. We had a busy weekend but it was mostly fun. This is a short week for us because we're heading to Disney World at the end of the week! Woohoo!

I had a decent week of reading and blogging last week. First, I participated in the Lucky Leprechaun Giveaway and gave away two sets of books. That was a lot of fun and I got a whole slew of new followers through the giveaway hop so Welcome to My Book Retreat!!

I put up a review of My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor. This was a fascinating memoir about a brain researcher who experiences a stroke herself. It was very educational and inspirational. Click on the title to read my review.

Finally, I joined the Spring Reading Thing challenge again, and have committed to reading eight specific books during the Spring season. I'm sure I'll read a lot more than that, but I'm just not sure of the other titles yet!

Currently Reading
I started Serena by Ron Rash last week. Then on Saturday I took my Nook to my daughter's dance class and started reading Spinning by Michael Baron. I don't usually have two books going at once so I've kind of switched over to reading Spinning and figure I'll get back to Serena when I'm done with that. I'm also still reading Aliens on Vacation by Clete Smith to my son.

Up Next
Since I'll be going out of town on the weekend, I'm going to read something on my Nook next. I think I'll start The Girl's Guide to Homelessness by Brianna Karp.
