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.
