It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. If you want to let the world know what you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.

I was a little under the weather last week -- sort of both figuratively and literally. Had a bad tummy bug that kept me from getting out and about most of the week, but even if I'd been in better shape, the outdoor world was cold and damp and not very tempting. So I stayed close to home and got quite a bit of reading done.

● Finished three books:

(latest in the Flavia de Luce series - I'll be getting a review up soon)

The After House, by Michael Phillip Cash

 The Case of the Velvet Claws, by Erle Stanley Gardner 
(first in the Perry Mason series)

● Also read a couple of books for the I Love Picture Books Reading Challenge:

Corduroy, by Don Freeman

● And posted a short review of a book I read earlier this month:

● This week, I'm still trying to finish up Against the Fall of Night, by Arthur C. Clarke. And I'm also reading one of the Early Reviewer books I've got from Library Thing:

Let Sleeping Dogs Lie, by Rita Mae Brown
(#9 in her Sister Jane Arnold series)

So I think I'm off to a pretty good start for the year, and I'm hoping to get another two or three books finished before the end of the month. 


  1. A Flavia new release. Eager to read this. Loved the series.

  2. I've heard good things about the Alan Bradley book, but I'm still trying to get the chance to read the first book. many books, too little time!

  3. Corduroy is one of my all time favorites. And, the Chimney Sweep book has been catching my eye.


Welcome and thanks for leaving me a comment. I love to hear from visitors.

Also, please note that while I appreciate the thought, I don't play the blog awards game. I think you all deserve awards! But you might think about becoming a follower of my blog -- that would really be the best award.
