What Are You Reading?!


We just got in from a long weekend in Chicago. My younger son, Ben, has graduated from college. Woo hoo! He gets married in July and I will, at long last, take off that mom apron.

I did a little reading on the plane, up and back. I finished my reread of Orphan Train for the Tuesday night book group. I finished W is for Wasted, the latest in the ABC mysteries. And I read A Nice Little Place on the North Side: Wrigley Field at 100 and learned more about the Cubbies that I ever knew existed. Three very good reads!

I started Creative Habit and Storied Life of A. J. Fikrey and Path With Heart and Studs Terkel's Chicago. I'm going to set aside Chicago until I head up there in July but I'm going full force into the other three.

So that's my reading week. How about you? Are you reading anything good? Any recommendations? Hope you'll share your reading week with me, too.

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.
