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.!
Wow, y’all, what a week! I was so busy last week! I came home every night from work to do more work. Getting the house ready for the Mother’s Day cookout we didn’t get to have yesterday (weather), plus getting the garden ready left this girl too tired to blog! I was almost too tired to read! Thank God for bath time, or I would never get any reading in!
I managed to finish A Discovery of Witches by Deborah Harkness last week. I have a few problems with it, but I enjoyed it. I want to read the next one for sure! More on that soon.
I started listening to Oryx & Crake by Margaret Atwood. I’m about halfway through with it. You may remember, Atwood was on my list of to-be-read this year AND since I have tried her in print repeatedly with little result, I thought I’d try audio. I’m confused as hell, but I *think* I actually started enjoying the book yesterday while I was working in the garden. It COULD be I’m enjoying Campbell Scott reading it to me, we’ll see. He has a NICE reading voice.
I am currently reading Equal Rites by Terry Pratchett on ye olde Jackson Wilkie Fitzgerald Owens (my nook). After two huge chunksters, I was ready for something light and easy on the brain. Plus, I adore Pratchett and was feeling a little homesick for Discworld. I am so glad I have so many more books by him to read!
Up next? Your guess is as good as mine? I brought home a TON of books from a local book sale this past weekend, so I definitely have plenty to pick from. Want to see?
I got 21 books for about $60. Not too shabby, especially as most of them look brand-spanken-new! Where would you begin?
How was your reading week? What was good? What wasn’t? How ya doing?
Oh, and did you notice the new template? I’m quite pleased with this one; I think it’s a keeper!
PS: I’ve been made aware of the commenting problem. I *think* I’ve fixed it. Can you hit me up and let me know? Thank you!
