It's Monday!



                 


What I Finished Last Week



Two bleak novels that have left me longing for a jolly good funny story. Suggestions?

We listened to Mister Monday on audio last week during our trip to and from TLA. 


 It's easy to read a lot of books when you are at a librarian's conference.
Look at all these short books I finished last week, too.


This should be a busy book week.
Wednesday is World Book Night!
Saturday is Dewey's 24-Hour-Readathon!





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.

  1. I've got Garth Nix's Key's to the Kingdom series to read. I really enjoyed the Abhorsen series, he's a great Aussie author :)
    Have a great week and happy reading!

  5. Have you read Gail Carriger? She always makes me laugh. I don't know how you manage to read at conferences. I just add to my stack when I attend one. Come see what I read last week. Happy reading!

  7. I've not read The House of Mirth before but I have read Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton. It does sound bleak but I hope it was a good read for you! :)

    Thank you for visiting my blog.

  9. All new titles to me, except for Katherine Schwarzenegger's book, that I saw her talk about on the Today Show. I probably would not pick it up for myself, but maybe for my young granddaughters. Enjoy your busy week ahead.

  10. These are all new titles to me, never ceases to amaze me the number of books to be read. Enjoy.

  11. Oh how I'd love to read more...I'm seriously impressed with your list and have noted them for future reference.
    I've just started reading 'Winter of the World' by Ken Follett.
    Have a great week ;D

  12. We liked Mister Monday a lot. It was a perfect read for us on our trip to San Antonio last week.

  13. Your son would definitely like Mister Monday, Shelley. All you need to do is stop by my Little Library here in Texas....I have the book and the audio cds out, waiting for a new reader/listener.

  14. You don't want to miss Silent Wife. I can't remember when I've read something so eerie.

  15. I'd never heard about Silent Wife until one of the staff in the Penguin booth at the conference recommended it.

  16. Gail Carriger is new to me. Off to see if I can find something by her. Happy to try something cheery.

  17. All of us in our book club read different Edith Wharton books. But all the stories were bleak.

  18. I do read a lot, but, don't forget, I gave up tv in 2003!

  19. I saw I Just Graduated... Now What at the bookstore and was tempted, it looks interesting even though I graduated, um, a few years ago ha ha.

  22. I'm jealous of your Mister Monday road trip. I'm going to listen to By the River tomorrow on a trip to the blue mountains. You do have a big week lined up! I so want to do a Deweys Readathon one time- the timing is difficult down under though- and of course I'm working all weekend. You gave up tv 11 years ago! Wow, no wonder you get so much reading done. I don't watch all that much tv, but I don't want to give it up.

  23. I'm not obsessive about not watching tv....I watch movies and I do watch series on occasion.
