It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


We had another busy weekend. My daughter's fourth birthday was on Friday, so we have been celebrating most of the weekend. She had her party at Build A Bear and the kids all had a great time. I did get quite a bit of reading done this week, though.

I finished reading Final Vector by Allan Leverone, which is a thriller about terrorists trying to shoot down Air Force One, told from the perspective of an air traffic controller. My review will be up tomorrow for the blog tour.

I also finished  Elephant Talk by Ann Downer, which I'll review this week as well. This is a nonfiction book about communication among elephants. Very interesting.

Last week, I reviewed The Shepherd by Ethan Cross. You can click on the title to see my review. This was a very intense thriller. I also interviewed Ethan Cross, who is a debut novelist.

And finally, I shared a few books my kids have been reading in my What My Children Are Reading post.

Currently Reading
Now I'm reading Zero Day by Mark Russinovich, and I'm just about done with The Story of King Arthur and His Knights by Howard Pyle, which I've been reading to C.

Up Next
I'm going to start on my March book club book, My Stroke of Insight by Jill Bolte Taylor, next. I also plan to celebrate Read Across America on Wednesday with my kids. It's Dr. Seuss's birthday, so we'll be enjoying some of our favorite Dr. Seuss books.

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. Elephant talk sounds interesting (I found your blog through What Am I Reading). And I like the idea of blogging what your kids read; I should try that if I can keep track of the 6th grader's books.

  2. I'm reading My Stroke of Insight now. It can be vert technical at times but my brother just had a stroke and it is really helping me with that.

    It can also go towards my memoir challenge. Enjoy your week.

  3. All of your books this week are new to me, but it sounds like a good mix of genres!

    Enjoy your books this week -

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 …
