It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (10.1.12)




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.

I can't believe it's October already...this year is certainly flying by! I wasn't around last weekend - we went up to our cabin for 6 days, so this post is covering all my reading happenings for the last 2 weeks. We had a great time at the cabin, but it was quite chilly a few mornings - down to the 30s! I got a ton of reading in, which is good considering this past weekend I didn't get much reading time due to Bloggiesta! Speaking of which, I got lots done during this weekend festivity, including catching up on my never-ending list of reviews to write. If only I can stay caught up!

    1. I don't think I've ever been this up-to-date on my reviews...hope I can keep it up!

      Love, Anthony is really good so far! Deborah Messing, from Will & Grace, is the narrator and she's great!

  6. Glad you got a lot accomplished during Bloggiesta, a headache curtailed my participation. It is hard to believe its October already!

    1. Oh...that sucks. I can totally relate to being sidelined by headaches - there's nothing worse than not being able to do what you want b/c of a headache. Hope you are feeling better!
