It's Monday - What Are You Reading? (4.11.11)

It’s Monday What Are you Reading , hosted by Sheila, is the perfect way for me to begin my week and allows me to focus on what needs to be read and to see what I have or have not accomplished the previous week. I also enjoy discovering new books by visiting other participants blogs.

Spring finally seems to have come to the Northeast and I am able to enjoy sitting on my enclosed porch in the afternoon sun and read! While last week was busy with workshops and trainings for work, I was still able to get quite a bit of reading in. Hopefully the trend continues as my tbr piles aren't getting smaller fast enough!
Books Completed last week:
  • Blackberry Crumble by Josi S. Kilpack (review book)
  • Bedeviled Eggs by Laura Childs (review book)
  • The Bone Trail by Nell Walton (review book)

What about you?  What does your reading week look like this week?  Whatever it is, happy reading and have a good week!


  1. You had a great week! I am not making plans for this week. I'm going to choose from the stack based on my mood. My Monday Report is here.

  2. @Kathy Martin It seems as if all I'm doing lately is reading review books...I'm hoping to get ahead so that I can sneak in one or two of my books!

  3. I can not wait to be able to sit outside and read! Still a bit chilly here in Minnesota and it is annoying how long it is taking to warm up... we had one day tat reached the high 50's so far this year.... I was thrilled - I went on a bike ride :)

    Your books look good - have a fantastic week!

  4. @Sheila (Bookjourney) I love sitting outside's so peaceful! Plus, I love going for walks with my puppy.

  5. I love Already Home it was such a great book. I did a couple of reading outside days last week and aiming for some more this week.

  6. @Felicia the Geeky Blogger I am about 50 pages in so far and it's great! I'm hoping to be outside this week, too, reading.

  7. Looks like a great reading week. Its almost warm enough to sit outside and read today - except there is a lot of wind cooling it off! I will have to settle with sitting inside beside an open window!

    I didn't participate this week because my blog is undergoing some major changes but I will be back next week!

  8. @Bonnie I saw that...I'm anxious to see what the new look will be!!!

  9. I really enjoyed The Hundred Secret Senses, hope you do too! I've got a few Orange Prize longlisters lined up, but secretly I'm waiting for the shortlist to be announced tomorrow, list.too.long ;)

  10. @Chinoiseries Hundred Secret Senses will by my first Amy Tan book - but I've heard great things about her books. Will have to check out the shortlist to see what's on it.

  11. Looks like you had a great week! I'm slowly getting back into the swing of things...but not quite up to what I had been doing. Happy reading this coming week!
    Here's my Monday:

  12. @Bev Hankins I seem to go through spurts, too. I have had a few weeks where I was able to read four or five books, but those weeks seem to be few and far between!
