It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I spent half of my week at home and then the rest of the week in Detroit for the Women's National Book Association National Board Meeting. Ironically enough, for a long weekend devoted to books and women in the book world, I got almost no reading in once I arrived. My lack of reading aside (and this is entirely a personal problem), it's a great organization and you all should look into it if you are a bookish person in any way shape or form. We have authors, editors, agents, librarians, publicists, teachers, and readers among others, so we certainly have room for any of you reading this! This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Books I completed this past week are:

The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells by Andrew Sean Greer
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
The Tricking of Freya by Christina Sunley

Bookmarks are still living in the middle of:

The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind by William Kamkwamba
The Revealed by Jessica Hickam

Reviews posted this week:

Paperboy by Tony Macaulay
The Year She Left Us by Kathryn Ma
The Impossible Lives of Greta Wells by Andrew Sean Greer
The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion

Books still needing to have reviews written (as opposed to the ones that are simply awaiting posting):

Where Somebody Waits by Margaret Kaufman
Dinner With the Smileys by Sarah Smiley

  1. I'm intrigued by the Tricking of Freya.

  2. You remind me that I have The Rosie Project on my Kindle. I was so eager to read it when I got it but it got buried under more urgent books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  3. I'm intrigued by the Women's National Book Association. I've started reading on their website, but I'm looking forward to doing some more spelunking! And now I'm off to read your review of The Suicide Shop!


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.
