It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (5.27.13)



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.

Well, the weather didn't pan out exactly as I had hoped for the holiday weekend, but I did get some reading time in. Of course, if I just stayed off-line for a while, I would probably have gotten much more done than I did! Twitter is still new for me, and I find myself checking it out all the time. Luckily, from all my diligent checking this weekend, I came across a new online book club that I decided to join. The Book Lovers Unite Online Book Club is just starting and I signed up to read their first book pick for the month of June - Reconstructing Amelia by Kimberly McCreight.  The book sounds interesting and I'm looking forward to being part of the discussion. Let me know if you decide to join in!

  3. I'm not someone who is very 'big' on social media but with now having a blog I am contemplating getting a twitter.. I don't know, I think it'll prove to be quite a resourceful tool if I do eventually pluck to get one.

    There are a number of books featured in your post this week that may just be added to my wish list...

    1. I'm not huge into the social media, either, but I did the twitter mainly for the blog (although I do follow some things related to General Hospital!).

  4. The internet interferes with my reading time too. I spend way too much time playing Facebook games. Come see my Monday Report. Happy reading!

    1. It's so bad some times - between facebook, pinterest, and now twitter - I really have to discipline myself!

  5. Pinterest is what drags me away from reading, blogging and reviewing ... perfect procrastination source lol.
    I read a couple of Tami Hoag books a few years ago and really enjoyed them ... don't know why I haven't picked something else up.

    Have a great week and happy reading :)

  6. I'm so horrible at participating in the book clubs I join - so I might have to consider an online book club too. Thanks for the idea :-) Hope you have a great week!

    1. I think the online ones will be fun...and less pressure than the in-person ones.

  8. We're finally supposed to have real Memorial Day kind of weather today, so I plan to hit the hammock with my book in an hour or so. Hooray for summer!

    I believe I have Innocent Traitor around here somewhere to be read. I'll be curious to see what you think of it. Enjoy your week!
