It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Back to reality today. We spent the last four days in Orlando at Disney World. It's been a tough morning getting back to real life. Especially since we have gray skies and sleet instead of the 85 degree sunny days we had in Florida. We had a wonderful time. On Thursday we enjoyed the pool and beach at the Polynesian Resort, and then went to the luau there for dinner. Friday was spent at Magic Kingdom where the highlight of the day was lunch in the castle with Cinderella, Snow White, Belle, Sleeping Beauty and Ariel. M absolutely loved it! On Saturday we met my sister and her family at Hollywood Studios, where the highlight of the day was Jedi Training for C. Then we had a nice breakfast at Kona Cafe on Sunday morning before heading home.

I didn't get any blogging done last week, and I only did a bit of reading on the short flights. I did finish Spinning by Michael Baron. I plan to put up my review tomorrow and my interview with the author on Wednesday.

Currently Reading
I started The Girl's Guide to Homelessness by Brianna Karp. I'm not quite halfway through. It's very interesting. I haven't made any more progress on Serena by Ron Rash, since it's a paperback and I only brought my Nook on vacation. And I'm still reading Aliens on Vacation by Clete Smith to my son. We didn't do much reading with the kids on vacation so we didn't make much more progress on that either.

Up Next
I'm not sure what I'll start next since I'm in the middle of two books at the moment. I did receive Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury from Paperback Swap while I was gone, so it's very tempting to pick that up next. I also need to start The Road by Cormac McCarthy, which is my April book club book.

  3. Ooh, I loved Fahrenheit 451! Hope you enjoy it, too. It's scary but incredibly important for bookies to read. Glad you enjoyed your Disney World vacation :)

  4. Welcome back!! I was offline myself much of the week, so I'd forgotten you were going away. Sounds like you had a great time. we stayed at the Polynesian when I was a kid, shortly after it opened. We saved for years for that trip!

    I haven't read The Road, but we recently watched the movie adaptation - pretty grim stuff!

    Glad you had a nice vacation - enjoy your books this week -
