Well? So? How was your Christmas? Mine was fabulous! I didn’t get many books (only Steig Larsson’s Millennium trilogy and a spiffy new cover for Jackson Wilkie Fitzgerald Owens, my nook) but I got lots of cooking stuff including a brand new Kitchen Aid Fire Engine Red Mixer!!! And new knives! Woot! It’s funny, the way presents change and what excites us over the years, isn’t it?
I did manage to finish three books last week despite the holiday and coming down with a raging case of Strep Throat (fun times, that) and am more than halfway through another. Firstly I finished The Sherlockian, which I teased last week, and which totally lived up to it’s hype and promise. I looooved it. Then I finished Second Nature by Michael Pollan. I listened to the audio version, which the author reads. THEN! I finished an ARC of Wither by Lauren DeStefano, a new YA coming out in March which I could. not. put. down.
Now I’m listening to The Moonstone by Wilkie Collins, read by Peter Jeffrey which appears to be out of print – which is a crying shame. I adore Wilkie, as if you didn’t know and I’m really enjoying Jeffrey’s reading of The Moonstone. I’m also reading The Amazing Maurice and his Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett. Pratchett is my best discovery of 2010 hands down; I completely adore him!
You may also notice I changed my template a little bit. Any time I get bored with blogging, that usually helps bring me around. I’m rather fond of this one, so I expect it will stay for quite awhile. But you never know with me!
So, gimme all the dirt? What did you get? What did you read? What will you be reading? Feed my TBR my minions!
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? is a weekly event to list the books finished last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finish this week. It was created by J.Kaye’s Book Blog, but is now being hosted by Sheila from One Person’s Journey Through a World of Books.!
