It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


It's Monday again. I hope you had a good week. Mine was busy so I didn't get a lot of blogging done. I did manage to start a Summer Reading Challenge last week, though. If you're interested in joining, you can see details here and sign up here. I'll also be publishing a linky for reviews this week.

And I celebrated surpassing 100 followers with a big giveaway last week! That was exciting!! One of my new followers, Emma of Em and Emm Expound on Exposition won.

Last week, I read and reviewed I Am Hutterite by Mary-Ann Kirkby. You can click on the title to see my review. I also published What My Children Are Reading.

Currently Reading
The Girls: A Novel by Lori Lansens ~ my book club's July selection

Up Next
Finding Marco by Kenneth Cancellara ~ I'll have two copies for giveaways so check back next week!
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Stieg Larsson ~ need to squeeze this in as soon as my friend let's me borrow it. Can't wait!

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.

  2. Your kids books sound so fun, especially the Armadillo one! Love it! Like the new look too, I'm probably way behind...I've been so busy.

    Have a fabulous reading week and if you have a minute check out my Reading Week at There’s A Book.

Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop

I Am A Reader, Not A Writer and Mundie Moms are hosting the Freedom to Read Giveaway Hop in honor of Independence Day in the United States, and I've decided to participate.

To stick with the theme of Independence Day, I'm doing what I did last year for this hop:

I'm giving away a book of your choice that is written by an author from the United States.
It can be any genre as long as the author is from the United States. You choose the book (up to $15), and I'll order it and have it mailed to you from Book Depository.

The contest ends on Thursday, July 5th at midnight Eastern Time. The winner will be notified by e-mail. If they do not respond within 48 hours, a new winner will be drawn.

Happy 4th of July! I hope you have a safe and fun holiday!

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 …
