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 books you're going to be reading this week, head on over to her blog and leave your link.

Well, I'm a little late with my reading report this week, but I almost decided not to bother doing one. Last week, I really got no reading done. That's none, nada, zip, zero! I'm still playing with the new iMac, trying to expunge all my old Microsoft habits and get with the new program. Some things are just the same, but a lot of it is really new and different. And I always have trouble with new and different, so I tend to get bogged down very easily. So, here's how things stack up (in the bog):
  • Last week:
    See above.

  • Reading this week:
    This week, I hope finally to finish up The Vanishing of Katharina Linden, by Helen Grant (yes, I know I promised to get that one wrapped up last week, but this time I really, really mean it).

  • Waiting in the wings:
    A couple of books I've started, but only read a few pages in each --

    The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, by Stieg Larsson (this one is looking like a long-term project)

    Think of a Number, by John Verdon (reading an ARC of this, but I think it came out earlier this year)


  1. Think of a number looks intriguing! Happy Monday!

  2. I hope you have a great week in books!

  3. The Larsson book is waiting for me at the library. I got all three in audio versions.

    I am hosting a give away on Rose City Reader for one of the books that came to my mailbox last week. It's a memoir -- you may like it.

  4. Glad you are enjoying figuring out your iMac! Stick with Girl with Dragon Tattoo, it gets better.

  5. I'm not a cat person, but I love the art work of The Vanishing...!!
    Have a great reading week.
    Here is my Monday review:

  6. Great reading choices! I hope you find a little time to get some reading done this week... I know how crazy life can get. :D Glad you posted anyway!

  7. I loved The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo- hope you do too!

  8. HOw are you enjoying KATHARINA LINDEN? I read it awhile ago for LibraryThing and will post my review soon, probably next week.

  9. Many thanks, everyone, for dropping by!

    I have mixed emotions about "Linden" - I liked it, but I think my reactions to it may be affected by the fact that I was reading it right after reading "The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie," which has a similar set-up - spunky young girl solving mystery close to home. And I think "Sweetness" is really the better book. But they're both very enjoyable.


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.
