It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Happy Monday! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you have a good cup of coffee in your hand this morning as you make your way through your blog reader. I know I do!

Last week, I finally finished Rebecca by Daphne du Maurier. Unfortunately, I didn't enjoy it nearly as much as some of my readers. You can click on the title to see my review.

I also published my What My Children Are Reading post again this week. And I started The Journey Home by Michael Baron this weekend.

I stopped by Borders this week and they were having a Buy 2, Get 1 Free sale on bargain books. So I picked up three books I had never heard of before.
Have you read any of the books I got at Borders? Did I make good choices?

Up Next
I'll be reading Jonathan Livingston Seagull by Richard Bach next, for the Birth Year Reading Challenge. This is a short read so I'm hoping to start another book by the end of the week, but not sure which it will be.

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.

  5. I haven't read any of those but they all look pretty good! Especially Land of a Hundred Wonders---have to love a character named Gibby.

  6. Oooh...I love sales at the book store! I've been trying not to spend money on books for myself (using the library), but I have to go this week to get something for my mom...could be trouble! I'm not familiar with the ones you picked, but they look good!

    I haven't read Jonathan Livingston Seagull myself, but it was one of my mom's favorites in the 70's/80's...I really should read it myself.

    Enjoy your new books!

  9. Hi there! I found you through the Book Blogger Hop. I read Rebecca last year and I liked it, but it didn't send me over the moon. I think I'd like to try another by her, though.
