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.

  11. I love all the picture books you have - I have a huge collection of picture books from my teaching days and I refuse to part with them! There's nothing better than breaking some out when my nieces and nephews come to visit.

    I hope you are enjoying The Shoemaker's Wife - I loved that book!

    Have a great week and thanks for stopping by my blog!

  15. WOW! Lots of books and lots of great titles. I don't even know where to begin! So many nice picture books to check out (or buy!) next time. I didn't know who Julia Child was (shame on me!) until I watched Julie & Julia and I loved her ever since! Glad to see a children's book about her! I was about to start writing down which ones I'd like to be added on my shelf, but I realized I'd be listing almost your entire book post! Well done with this week's reading!
