It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment. You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
Last weeks winner (using Random.Org) was:
Aths (Reading On A Rainy Day)
Congratulations! Please choose an item out of the PRIZE BOX and email me your choice with your mailing address as well! firstname.lastname@example.org
For the first time since I took over this meme in February for J Kaye, I did not get the post up the night before. My weekend was so busy I still feel like I could just sleep another 4 or 5 hours to catch up. Usually I prep this post Sunday afternoon and try to have it post around 8 pm Central time on Saturday night which I know really helps the Monday Meme bloggers who live in other countries. Last night I just did not have the brain power to write this up so instead I played around a bit with the Blogfest blogs and wish I could have had more time this weekend even doing that.
I got up early this morning to get this post written and active.
So what happened this past week in the reading world for me?
To Kill A Mockingbird (book to movie comparison and review)
Men and Dogs by Katie Crouch - Audio Review: A hard review to write, this one was not one I enjoyed
Dropping the “F” Bomb – a list of upcoming FALL bloggy and booky events
What The Yuck! Review – A book that answers the questions you may be too embarrassed to ask your doctor.
The I Hate To Cook Book by Peg Bracken review – *I loved this and used it last night to make dinner.
That was last week. I have no great reading successes to report. If anything my reading time has been minimal and I have to report that while ROOM was ob my list to read last week, I did not even have time to pick it up. My week was so busy with the last days for my assistant, planning the office moving forward, prepping for the feed the children event, the Honduras kids in town, tailgate party planning and participating, set up for the homeless serving week and then last nights orientation…..GAH!
So here is what I currently have going and what I plan to start this week:
Finishing this one up today. This is my book club read and we meet tomorrow evening! YIPES!
I had big plans for this one last week and I never even picked it up. Too many other commitments…. try, try again this week.
What is Dekker up to now? I am about to find out. This one came with a t-shirt which I think is also part of a giveaway I will have to check.
I am also working on The Handmaid’s Tale and Bleak House as read-a-longs.
Today is also the kick off the BBAW – Book Blogger Appreciation Week so please take time to read my sticky post at the top part of my blog about what I have planned for this week of celebration!
I am taking today off from work as I am just so behind on everything. My lawn needs me, my house needs me… and I just need a day to breathe and catch up. I also want to see what you are all reading to please connect your Monday What Are You Reading post to the space below where it says “click here”. I will be stopping by throughout the day with Coffee Cup to see what you have planned for this week.
