It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Good morning. I'm getting some work done this morning then I have to run out to the YMCA to switch around some of my son's camp arrangements. Trying to get ready for the summer since this is his last week of school. I can't believe he's about to finish first grade!

As far as reading goes, I finished A Game of Character by Craig Robinson last week, and put up my review for that one.

I also wrote up my May month in review post. That month seems to have flown by!

And I shared some of the books my kids are reading, including some old favorites.

Currently Reading
I'm currently reading The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley. It's been on my bookshelf for a long time and I finally decided to take the time to read it.

Up Next
I still need to finish up A New Prospect by Wayne Zurl, and then I'm going to move on to a book I have for review called Dead Barchetta by Kathryn Lively.

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. I'm interested to see what you think of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I have that on my TR list and was thinking about reading that after The Glass Castle.

  3. Hope you enjoy the book from your TR shelf - I have so many sitting on mine I need to purge so I have room for some new ones. Happy reading!

  6. Oh, I've been wanting to read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie for ages! I can't wait to hear what you think of it!

    Last week of school here, too. Summer means no early morning alarm clock and quiet, easy evenings...but it also means no quiet days in the house for me! Much harder to get any work done with the kids here.

    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 …
