The Readerbuzz October Giveaway: Matched! as well as It's Monday! What Are You Reading?


WHAT I'M READING NOW
I'm all caught up in a beautiful Reading Flow. You know, Flow, like that described by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi in his book, Flow: The Psychology of Optimal Experience. That kind of Flow.

My Reading Flow consists of four good books:
Matched (a nice dytopian experience)...
Howards End is on the Landing (a respected author and critic takes another look at the books on her shelves)...
CityLit: Paris (a collection of little one-page excerpts from big books about Paris)...and...
The Information (a nonfiction look at information that has been important to our world through time).

WHAT I FINISHED LAST WEEK
A Game of Thrones (not yet reviewed)
Hamlet's Blackberry (not yet reviewed)
The Black Stallion (not yet reviewed)

WHAT I MIGHT READ NEXT
The Hardy Boys: Tower Treasure (Book 1)
I'm awaiting its arrival at the library.

  1. My students adore this book, so I really need another copy! I follow you, and my e mail is msyingling (at) yahoo (dot) com. I also put in a friend request through Goodreads, but I try to keep my Facebook friend list to under 40, and if I add you, I'd have to unfriend my brother, which would make Thanksgiving akward!

  2. No, let's not start un-friending brothers so as to increase one's chances of winning a prize!

  4. Oh you're reading the Paris book already! And mine is just sitting her, unloved and unopened. (I am reading a thick adult book for a change though, and I've got to get it done). Howard's End is on the Landing, is sitting unread on my shelf too. I so need an extra 6 hours in my day!

  16. Oooh, cool! Matched has been on my wish list for eons. I just discovered it's being made into a movie. I follow you on Google Reader (which I'd abandoned, but apparently I'm back . . . and I just added you to my sidebar because I'm finding people I forgot to move to my sidebar when I left GR).

    I also follow you at
    +1 Twitter and
    +1 We're FB friends

    I don't do Goodreads, anymore. I wasn't keeping up with it, so I ditched my account.

  17. I loved this book and would love to own a copy. I follow and we are already friends on Goodreads and Facebook. I just added you on twitter. I really need to take a class on what to do with twitter. My school district wants to be all 21st Century, but I really haven't figured out what to do with it.
