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.

So far, March hasn't been a stellar reading month for me. I only finished one book last week. Also didn't get any reviews posted, although I've got several started. All the rainy weather we've had recently, plus the time change, has slowed me down considerably; but I'm hoping to get back in the groove (or at least find the groove) this week.

  • Finished last week:
    Contact by Carl Sagan. I've got a review of this one started, and hope to get it finished and posted soon.

  • Reviews posted last week:
    None. As I said, I have several underway, and hope to get them all posted during the week.

  • Reading this week:
    Mrs. Malory and Any Man's Death, by Hazel Holt (should finish this one later today).
    The Family Man, by Elinor Lipman.
    Continuing with The Library: An Illustrated History, by Stuart A.P. Murray.
    Also continuing with The Magnificent Ambersons, by Booth Tarkington. This is turning out to be quite a long-term project. But I really am enjoying it, and do intend to finish it up one of these days.

  • Next up:
    A Fair Maiden, by Joyce Carol Oates. Found this at the library the other day and decided to take a look at it. It's recently published, though I hadn't heard anything about it. Haven't read that much JC Oates, but this one looks interesting (and short).


  1. A Fair Maiden sounds like it could be a good one. I love just picking books off the shelf and taking a chance with them! Have a great week!

  2. Oh, I hadn't heard of this Joyce Carol Oates book either! Must add it to the list.

    Here's mine:

  3. The Library book looks interesting - I definitely love mine!

    Here is my Monday:

  4. I agree - a Fair Maiden does sound like a good one! Enjoy your week!

  5. The library book sounds great. I'll definitely have to look into that.

    I haven't read any Mrs. Mallory books, yet. I take it (since you're on book 19) you like the series?

  6. I'm so happy to hear you're liking The Magnificent Ambersons. That really is such a good book. Also, I'll be back to read your review of Contact. Have you read any of Sagan's nonfiction?

  7. I'll be watching for your Contact review - I think my husband might like that one.

  8. I'm interested in the Oates book...not one that I've heard of. Enjoy your week of reading!

  9. They all look good. I'm hoping to get both my books read this week , if things go as planned! Hope your week goes well!

  10. The Library book sounds so interesting! Happy reading :)

  11. I have A Fair Maiden at home and look forward to reading it soon! YOur books sound terrific :-)

  12. Looks like you are having a great reading week.

  13. The Magnificent Ambersons is one of my favorite movies, I should really read the book.

    The Library looks really interesting, must check that one out!


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.
