What I Read and What I'm Reading Now

A very quick look at the books I read and acquired last week....

What I Read Last Week

Strange Pilgrims? A Latin Haruki Murakami.
Mrs. Mike? A romance and an adventure.
The Oregon Trail? Two brothers in 2011 take the Oregon Trail. Complete with wagon and mules.
The Running Man? Silkworms, a mysterious Vietnam vet, and a scary running man.

What Arrived in the Mail


A Walk in the Woods, 101 Most Influential People Who Never Lived,
Rising Strong, Fab Four Friends, and A Window Opens

What I'm Reading Now

A Window Opens

What are you reading today?!

What is the Sunday SalonImagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them,and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book. Click here to join the Salon.

The Sunday Post is a meme hosted by Kimba at Caffeinated Book Reviewer. It's a chance to share news and recap the past week.

Mailbox Monday was created by Marcia at The Printed Page. We share books that we found in our mailboxes last week.  It is now being hosted here.

Stacking the Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga's Reviews in which you can share the books you've acquired.
