What are you reading this week?

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.  

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. 


  1. OOh nice! These are new to me but I hope you enjoy them all!

    Here's my Monday Wrapup

    Have a GREAT day!

  2. The Tortoise and the Hare looks gorgeous!

  3. Social looks like it will be really interesting - enjoy!

  4. Tortoise and Hare is beautifully illustrated. I love how Pinkney used the illustrations along with a minimal amount of text to tell the story.

  5. I'm always interested in reading books about people. Not sure I know any more about people than I did when I was five, though. Very complex.

  6. Thanks, Diane. I can't wait to see what the children at my school library think about them. That's always the true test of good books, I think....if I can sell the children on good ones.

  7. Five Days at Memorial is getting lots of buzz but I don't think I've read a review of it yet. I hope you love it.

  8. All new to me but Five Days at Memorial caught my eye. Hope you enjoy it. Have a great week and happy reading :)

  9. I already have 5 Days at Memorial on my wishlist. I enjoy this type of nonfiction very much. Hope you have a good week.

  10. Five Days at Memorial looks like an interesting non-fiction pick. I love the covers on the children's books! Enjoy!

  11. Your children's books look fabulous. It makes me wish I was young again.

  12. I'd like to read Five Days at Memorial though I think it might be a distressing read.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier.

  25. I really want to read Five Days at Memorial. I think it's going to be a tough read though!
