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.

    1. I have the feeling young people will connect with Wild completely.

  5. Thought I'd move the book info thread to here. The Davy Crockett autobiography - I totally expect it (at least some of it) to be written phonetically... and certainly not with modern english. I'll let you know.

  6. Nice! Can't believe you can juggle 3 books at once! I'm still and always will be a one book at a time girl!

    Happy Reading!

  8. I have Paris in Love waiting in the wings too. I'll be interested to hear what you think of it. Same thing for the other two of course. I know almost nothing about either of them.

    1. Paris in Love...we just can't pass up those books about Paris, can we? This one is especially good.

    1. Yes, I finished it today and I recommend it. At least for Baby Boomers.

    2. I'm not a Baby Boomer, but maybe I could enjoy it anyway. =)

  12. I hope you're enjoying the Anna Quindlen - other reviewers made it sound a little boring, I thought. Paris in Love sounds like a nice and light read.

    Have a great week!

    Happy Reading!

  15. I haven't heard of any of these ones to be honest, but they definitely have some interesting covers. :) That Oregon Trail one reminds me of the computer game. :D I loved that game...except someone always ended up dying of typhoid...or a snake bite. :P

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my Monday post, Deb! :D

    Happy Reading!

    1. I just got back from Oregon, snake-bite-free, but, sadly, not scorpion-bite-free.

  19. Looking forward to your Earthsea review!
    Just found that book while emptying my bookshelf and put it in the TBR pile :)
    Love the 'might read' part- I might adopt it as 'Reading next' always seems to jinx my reading pattern!
    Have a lovely week :)

    1. I always regret saying that I'm going to read a book....Worse case in point: War and Peace.
