It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Here we are again...another Monday another new week. I'm hoping for a little more normality this week. Last week, we were adjusting to C going off to 1st grade, and then M got strep throat. So needless to say, it was a bit of a crazy week!

I did get some reading and reviewing done. I finished reading Audience, Relevance, and Search by James Mathewson, Frank Donatone and Cynthia Fishel. If you're looking to improve your website or blog, check out my review.

I also put up a review of The Curious Case of Benjamin Button by F. Scott Fitzgerald but I still need to write my review of Letter to My Daughter by Maya Angelou.

Finally, I wrote up short reviews of two more picture books, which you can read in my What My Children Are Reading post.

Currently Reading
As expected, I did not move on to Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. Instead, my neighbor let me borrow The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest by Steig Larsson, so that's what I'm reading now. I'm also reading How to Sue a Telemarketer: A Manual For Restoring Peace On Earth One Phone Call At A Time by Steve Ostrow. I'll publish my review for that on Friday for the book tour.

Up Next
This time, I will definitely move on to Snow Flower and the Secret Fan by Lisa See. It's the only book left on my Summer Reading Challenge list so I need to read it! Plus, everyone says they love it so I don't know why I never seem to get to it!

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.

  1. My husband is reading Hornet's Nest, too - hard to stop that series once you get started, isn't it?

    Snow Flower and the Secret Fan has been sitting on my TBR shelf for over a year now - I look forward to hearing what you think of it.

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 …
