It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now being hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. If you want to let the world know what books you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link.

Last week I didn't get as much reading done as I hoped I would. Between the power outage caused by the snowstorm, and the hours I spent zonked on pain killers after dental surgery, there wasn't much time left for reading. But I'm hoping to get back on schedule this week.
  • Almost finished last week:
    , by James McKean. I should be able to finish that one up tonight.

  • Reading this week:
    Continuing with Booth Tarkington's The Magnificent Ambersons. I've put Joan Didion's Play It As It Lays aside for the moment - good book, but just a little too depressing for this time of year.

  • Next up:
    Haven't decided yet, but I'm thinking of People of the Book, by Geraldine Brooks - it's been on my "must read" list for quite a while now. Or maybe a nice cozy mystery - preferably set in the tropics with lots of beaches and sunshine!


  1. Ooh, I hope you do pick People of the Book - I'd love to know what you think of it.

  2. I haven't yet read People of the Book, but it sure sounds good!

  3. I loved People of the Book and gave it to my niece who was all excited because her mother-in-law told her how good it was. My niece called me Saturday to say she just couldn't get into it. I was dumbfounded. I havne't read any negative reviews at all. I'll be most interested to hear your take on it.

  4. I would love to know what you think of People of the Book. I haven't read it but I've heard good things about it.

  5. People of the Books has been on my shelves for a long time now. Would love to know your thoughts about it, if you read it. Have a great week.

  6. You had a tough week! Hope you are feeling better after the surgery. Enjoy your reads!

  7. I understand about Joan Dideon...I hope you are enjoying your books and not getting cabin fever with all the snow. Have a great reading week!

  8. Sorry to hear about the dental surgery, then the power outage - what a tough time. Hope you are feeling better now.

    Take care,


  9. I'd love to read People of the Book at some point too. How did you like Quattrocento? That sounds interesting. I had a bad week last week too. Here's hoping we have a better one this week!

  10. I'm trying to decide if I want to read People of the Book. I wasn't a big fan of March so not sure yet.


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.
