It's Monday! What Are You Reading?!


What I Finished Last Week

Visit Sunny Chernobyl
and Other Adventures in the World's Most Polluted Places
by Andrew Blackwell
How does this sound for a vacation: 
A fun-filled trip to Chernobyl, 
the site of one of the world's worst nuclear accidents? 
Or how about a boat cruise...more

The Cay
by Theodore Taylor
I am astonished at all the things I learned 
from reading this very short children's chapter book. 
I never knew that Caribbean islands lay just offshore...more

What I'm Reading Now

Where'd You Go, Bernadette
by Maria Semple

Saving the School:
The True Story of a Principal, a Teacher,
a Coach, a Bunch of Kids,
and a Year in the Crosshairs of Education Reform
by Michael Brick


What I Might Read Next

My Boys and Girls Are in There:
the 1937 New London School Explosion
by Ron Rozelle

by Michael Palin


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.


  1. I just put the Chernobyl book on my hold list at the library. Sounds interesting.

    1. It's very sad. It would be hard to have your homeland butchered like these spots have been butchered.

  2. Nice! Those are new to me but I hope you enjoyed and enjoy them!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup
