It's Monday! What Are You Reading?








 
What I'm Reading Now

I am hoping to start reading the five nominees
in the nonfiction category:


  • Berlin 1961 by Frederick Kempe (Putnam Adult)





  • In the Garden of Beasts by Erik Larson (Crown)




  • Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff (Harper)




  • Physics of the Future by Michio Kaku (Doubleday)




  • The Social Animal by David Brooks (Random House)


  • What are you reading today?!



    It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is where we share what we read this past week, what we hope to read this week…. and anything in between!  This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

    I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme Book Journey loves to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. Book Journey offers a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment telling BJ how many you visited.

    2. I saw the list over the weekend too - I don't read much non-fiction but that seems like an excellent way to start. I was also pretty stoked that for once, I had read a few of the books on a list - the speculative fiction finalists - and I'm going to try and read a few more of those too.

    5. Interesting range of books. I try to read some non fiction every year so it's always good to see what others are reading for ideas.

      Happy reading..

    7. Wow-the books look good, all of them. I wonder which you will choose first? I think I would begin with David Brooks, ever interesting, but on the other hand, the 1961 book would interest me as I grew up in that time. Lots of good books to choose from! Thanks!

    8. I'm looking forward to read your thoughts on these! I need to start reading for the poetry category but instead I'm continuing The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman. ;-) Have a great week!

    10. I have put these books on my future reads list. I am trying to catch up right now on the ones I already have on my Nook. My next book is The Girl with the Dragon Tatoo. Ashley is reading it, and said it took her a while to get into it. Thanks for sharing! Have a good week! Brenda

    14. Deb Nance what a great idea - the nonfiction indie books! I am waiting patiently for the fiction selections but I should go over and check now maybe.

    15. Non-fiction is a genre I don't really read much of. Hoping to move outside of my comfort zone and pick up more books that I normally wouldn't read.

    16. That selection will certainly make for some interesting reading. I hope you enjoy them!
