It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


I'm a bit late today, but wanted to be sure to get this update out. I spent the weekend working on Bloggiesta updates to my blogs, so I didn't get a lot of reading done. I did get a lot of behind-the-scenes work done on my blogs, though, so it's good to get that out of the way!

I completed and reviewed One Foot in Eden: A Novel by Ron Rash last week. This was read for the Support Your Local Authors Challenge and I loved it! I'll definitely be reading more of his books in the future.

I published my What My Children Are Reading this week. I focused on one specific book this week. It's called Because I am Your Daddy by Sherry North, and I think it makes a great Father's Day book to read if you're looking for something like that.

I've decided to host a Summer Reading Challenge. I'll be posting the details tomorrow, but essentially, it's a fairly open challenge that will run from June 21-Sept 21 and will be modeled after the challenges hosted by Katrina at Callapidder Days. I'm doing her Spring Reading Thing challenge right now and wanted something to move on to when it ends next week.

Currently ReadingThe Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls ~ about halfway done

Not sure yet. Probably something for review, since I have several in a pile at the moment!

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.

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 …
