It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (1.21.13)




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.

Last week was a rough week - I ended up getting that nasty stomach bug that is going around. I wasn't able to do more than just sit on the couch and read. Glad to finally be done with that. Now I am back to my training for the Challenge Walk MS which is the first weekend in March...hopefully I will not have any more roadblocks in my training as a badly sprained ankle and the stomach bug have been more than enough!

I happened to see that there will be a mini-Bloggiesta in 2 weeks - I cannot wait. I have a few things in mind that I want to do on the blog and have been putting them off for a while now. It's set for February 2nd-3rd.

  • Big Sky River by Linda Lael Miller (library book)
  • Can't Help Falling in Love by Bella Andre (review e-book)
  • I Only Have Eyes For You by Bella Andre (review e-book)
Reading Now:

  13. I'm glad you're feeling better! Now, just stay clear of anyone with Influenza A. That seems to be absolutely rampant these days.

    I just picked up Mrs. Lincoln's Dressmaker at the bookstore on Saturday, after having watched the movie Lincoln on Friday night. I can't wait to get to it and learn a bit more about Mrs. Kekley. Enjoy!
