It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

April is more than a week old now! I find that very hard to believe, especially since our weather keeps dancing back and forth between spring and late winter. We haven't had the snow and ice that some of the country has had, but these last few days have been WAY too cold for a central Texas spring. Not happy about that.

Also a little upset that I only finished one book last week:

Murder in the Meadow (DI Hillary Greene #7), by Faith Martin

Haven't reviewed it yet (soon, I hope), but I did get a few reviews posted for books I finished earlier this year:

Looking ahead: This week I'm hoping to finish up a couple of Early Reviewer books from LibraryThing (I'm embarrassingly far off the track over there):

The Cottingley Secret, by Hazel Gaynor

The Girls in the Picture, by Melanie Benjamin

Both of those are print books, and I've gotten very used to doing most of my reading on my iPad. I find I read much faster on an e-reader, but I do occasionally miss the physical experience of reading "real" books. How about you? Are you a dedicated "print purist" or have you gone over to the dark (electronic) side? I like both, but I certainly do enjoy being able to carry a whole library with me on my Kindle or iPad. That's a definite advantage.

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is now hosted by Kathryn at Book Date. 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.


  1. I just finished a Hazel Gaynor book "A Memory of Violets" and have another in the queue. The one you have pictured looks really good as well, I will have to check it out. I am reading on my kindle almost exclusively now. I read faster, I can change the font size and I can carry it with me with no problem. I have bought a couple of books lately but I do prefer the e-reader.

  2. Enjoy your books! I have a handful of "real" books to read, but the Kindle reading is definitely easier for me, too. Just Kids looks like one I would like.

    Thanks for sharing...and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  3. The Cottingley Secret looks really interesting!! And it's still cold here in PA, wishing spring will get here soon!! I am happy, I finished one book this week,and reviewed!! But I read at my own pace, so I enjoy it. I hope you have a good reading week!!

  4. I prefer reading on my Kindle. I like to be able to highlight parts of the story I want to remember for my review. With print ARCs I dogear pages which is normally a practice I hate. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  5. The Cottingley Secret is on my "eventually" TBR, but I'm a mood reader at heart. Who knows when it might jump the queue. I'm format agnostic---give me stories in every and all formats! ;)
    Have a good reading week!

  6. One book is better than no books. I hope you like this week’s reads. Have a great week!

    Aj @ Read All The Things!

  7. I havent read a real book for a while now. Your books are an interesting mix.


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.
