It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Still no balance for me between reading and reviewing but I'm okay with how much more reviewing got accomplished this past week even if it was at the expense of reading. This meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books I completed this week are:

The Lacuna by Barbara Kingsolver

Bookmarks are still living in the middle of:

Our Mutual Friend by Charles Dickens
Great Lakes Nature by Mary Blocksma (this is going to take me all year as I read her year's entries on the corresponding days of this year)
Cutting For Stone by Abraham Verghese
The Vagabond by Colette
Ophelia Joined the Group Maidens Who Don't Float by Sarah Schmelling
A Circle of Quiet by Madeleine L'Engle

  2. Wow you really did a lot of writing this week. I get nervous when I have two or three books to review. Hope you have a great week and can tackle some more of those reviews.

I have had to disable the anonymous comment option to cut down on the spam and I apologize to those of you for whom this makes commenting a chore. I hope you'll still opt to leave me your thoughts. I love to hear what you think, especially so I know I'm not just whistling into the wind here at my computer.
