It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

You'd think a week away would translate into some serious reading and reviewing time, wouldn't you? Not in this case. The week started with two 9 hour driving days back to back and then culminated in the terrible news that my grandmother is in the hospital after a serious stroke. This meme is hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books I completed this week are:

Safe From the Sea by Peter Geye
The Miner's Daughter by Alice Duncan
The Hundred-Foot Journey by Richard Morais
Miss You Most of All by Elizabeth Bass

Bookmarks are still living in the middle of:

The Far Pavilions by M.M. Kaye
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)
The Secret Confessions of Anne Shakespeare by Arliss Ryan
Daughter of the Queen of Sheba by Jackie Lyden
How to Mellify a Corpse by Vicki Leon
The Laments by George Hagen
Tuesday Tells It Slant by Holly Christine

Reviews posted this week:

  1. Looking forward to reading your review of Molly Fox. Hope your grandmother feels better.

  2. You have a lot of books on the go - makes me feel better that I'm not the only one! My Monday is here

  3. So sorry to hear about your grandmother!

    You have a lot of books going - I do that too and then need like two weeks to get them all finished :)

  4. You still managed to get a fair amount of reading done, by the look of it.

    I'm sorry to hear about your grandmother.

    Take care.


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.
