It's Monday - What Are You Reading? (6.27.11)

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.

Well, it ended up being a productive reading week and a productive week getting reviews done! I also had the opportunity to meet author Lisa See who was touring with her newest book, Dreams of Joy. Hoping this upcoming week ends up being as productive. The holiday weekend means sailing for my husband all three days and that means plenty of quality reading time for me, while sitting on the porch of the club.

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


  1. Gracious! You had a busy week!! ;)

  2. A Summer Affair sounds interesting, so does Beachcombers. I love Amy Tan, and I loved The Hundred Secret Senses. She is such a wonderful author. Have a great week!

  3. @ Peppermint Ph.D: I wish every week was like that - then I might finally conquer my tbr list!

    @ Cinnamon Owl: A Summer Affair is really good so far - I always love her books! The Hundred Secret Senses was the first Amy Tan book I ever read and I am now a fan!

  4. What a great list! Looks like a lot of great summer reading.

    Here's my Monday:

  5. Beach Lane sounds good! Im a Sherryl Woods fan.
    Im finishing up The Knitting Diaries ( with 3 stories ) Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery and Christina Skye. Im also reading the 4th in the Virgin River series called a Virgin River Christmas by Robyn Carr.

  6. @ Bev: It's funny that the book I'm reading and the audio are both set on Nantucket!

    @ Melissa: I just started reading the Virgin River series and I think I am up to book 3 - it's a great series!
