It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. For those of you who spent the weekend celebrating Christmas with your families, I hope you had a very Merry Christmas! We had a wonderful week with my dad visiting. The kids had a blast playing with Papa. But I didn't get any reading or blogging done! We have more guests arriving on Wednesday night so my goal is to finish the book I'm currently reading by the time they arrive.

I did sign up for two challenges last week: the 2011 E-Book Reading Challenge and the I Want More Reading Challenge. I'm trying to keep my challenges simple for next year since I didn't really finish some of the challenges I joined in 2010. Speaking of that, I also wrapped up the Fall in Reading Challenge last week.

Currently Reading
I'm currently reading Blood of My Brother by James Lepore, which I'll be reviewing sometime this week.

Up Next
I think I'll move on to another review book next: Blue by Lou Aronica. I'm also starting to load my new Nook with books, so I'm sure I'll be starting an ebook soon!

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. Sounds like you had a fun Christmas! I am keeping my challenges to a minimum as well this year. I am really excited about the one I am hosting for WHERE are you reading which is to try to read a book that takes place in each of the 50 states this year. I am really excited to see how I do. It counts for whatever you are reading so it should be fun and easy.

    Enjoy the rest of your week :)

  2. I have signed up for a few challenges. I have finished all but two from last year, but it has been a challenge keeping them all straight. Sounds like Christmas was lovely and I hope you have a great week.

  7. I just finished A Suitable Boy!

    I read just 2-3 books a month so you can imagine how this one slowed me down (1,488 pages).

    Have a great week!
