It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


Hello. I'm posting this a little earlier than usual. I hope you had a great week. Mine was pretty good. And our weekend was a nice mix of getting things done and relaxing. We ended the weekend with the kids playing outside with their friends and us watching football. Very nice.

I didn't get much reading done last week, except That Day In September by Artie Van Why, a memoir about his experience during 9/11. This is a very moving little book. Artie also shared a guest post about the importance of sharing our memories with others.

I also reviewed Just My Type: A Book About Fonts by Simon Garfield. I'm giving away a copy and the giveaway ends tonight, so be sure to click through to enter now!

Finally, I shared some of the books my kids have been reading lately.

Currently Reading
I'm now reading Revenge: A Travis Mays Novel by Mark Young. 

Up Next
Next I'll be reading The Homeplace Revisited by William Leverne Smith. I'll also be participating in Book Blogger Appreciation Week, so you can expect some posts throughout the week related to that.

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.

  5. I just posted a review of That Day in September. I enjoyed the book.

    Three-quarters of what I read this week was in the form of children's picture books. Please come see what they were.

  6. Sounds like a great weekend - ours was a little too focused on getting stuff done and not enough relaxing!

    Sounds like you have some good stuff lined up for this week - enjoy your books and I look forward to the BBAW posts!
