It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Happy Monday morning! Thanks for stopping by! It hasn't been a great reading week for me, but hopefully it has been for you! I did have a great blogging week! I joined in the Book Blogger Hop hosted by Crazy-for-Books and ended up with several new followers. Welcome to my blog!

I didn't manage to complete any adult books last week. I did read and review Ima Nobody Becomes Somebody by Brenda Poage. It's a children's book about bullying.

I also published my weekly What My Children Are Reading recap. So I guess it was a big week for kids books around here!

I've been reading A Hundred Feet Over Hell: Flying with the Men of the 220th Recon Airplane Company Over I Corps and the DMZ, Vietnam 1968-1969 by Jim Hooper, and I'm enjoying it. But I just haven't had a lot of time to read this past week. I'm hoping to finish it soon!

Up next:
The Piano Teacher: A Novel by Janice Y. K. Lee ~ whenever it's finally available from the library!
Forget Me Not by Vicki Hinze

This meme is being hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books, so hop over there if you'd like to see what others are reading too.

  3. I'm going to have to go back and check out your review of Ima Nobody (I'm so behind in my reader, it's ridiculous!), because I just got it last week and I'm not so sure about it.

    Anyways...so glad to see more visitors for you! I've gotta try the Blog Hop this week I think!

    Have a fabulous reading week!

  4. Same kind of week here - not a lot of time for reading (or blogging) - just too much other stuff going on!

    Hope we both get more reading time this week..

Getting back to blogging

It seems that blogging has dropped to the bottom of my list for the past year, and was pretty low for the year or two prior to that. I love to read, and am continuing to do so, but as my regular readers know I haven't been around much. My last blog post was almost a year ago!!

There are many things that have taken me away from blogging. Work has been much more challenging and interesting these past few years, but that means I really don't want to get back on the computer when I get home at night - or on the weekends.

Family life has been more busy with kids having multiple activities in the evenings, leaving little time to just hang out and write about the books that I read.

I will admit to a bit of a Facebook addiction, which means way too much time spent scrolling through my newsfeed instead of doing something more productive. This is one of the things I'm working on and hoping that this will free up some time for getting back to the blog.

Overall, life is good. Work is …
