It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

So, Monday again.  That week disappeared awfully fast!  Still reading The Lost Symbol (Dan Brown's third Robert Langdon adventure).  Like the other Langdon tales, it moves really quickly; but it's also something of a chunkster, so it's going to take me another day or two to finish.

I've put aside the other books I started with the new year because I was seduced by another Mrs. Murphy mystery by Rita Mae Brown -- Cat on the Scent, number 7 in the long-running series.  Not sure why I picked that one up just now -- I think it must have jumped off the shelf all by itself and landed in my lap. Well, cats will do that sort of thing.

Also signed up for two more reading challenges last week -- the Books in Translation Reading Challenge and the Nonfiction Reading Challenge, both hosted by The Introverted Reader.  That brings my total up to (I think) sixteen new challenges for 2013.  Probably madness, but at this point, I figure a couple more can't really make much difference.

Now I just need to STOP playing around with my other blogs (Supply Cabinet Chronicles and Joysweb), and get back to my 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. It's also a great way to discover new books and new blogs.


  1. I really like the Mrs. Murphy books. My husband is from a town close to Crozet so the setting is very familiar to me.

  2. Looks like a great reading week for you. Enjoy

  3. I love reading challenges too. I'm forcing myself to stop at 15! Hope you enjoy your reads this week :-)

  4. I have loved Rita Mae Brown books, but haven't yet read this series...I really want to!

    Enjoy your week!



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.
