It's Monday - What Are You Reading? (3.21.11)

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.

This was a really slow week for me reading-wise. I had a lot going on for work and then had family and friends over yesterday for our town's annual St. Patty's Day parade, so I was busy preparing for that. I am hoping to be a bit more productive this week reading!

  • Love You More by Lisa Gardner (review book)
Reading Now:
  • The Secret Lives of Dresses by Erin McKean (mine)
  • Plain Truth by Jodi Picoult (library audio book)
  • Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff (book club book, mine)

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


  1. I really loved the Plain Truth - it was the first of Picoult's books that I ever read. I hope you enjoy it! Happy reading this week. Here is my Monday post:

  2. @BonnieHi Bonnie! I am enjoying it so far - listening to it helps with all the Amish language - not sure I would be able to pronounce some of it! This is the second Jodi Picoult book I've listened to but the fifth or sixth book of her's I've read!

  3. I have yet to read a Jodi Picoult book but will eventually buy one and read it as she seems like a great writer :D

  4. @blogabooketcI love Jodi Picoult because she always chooses such timely yet controversial topics to write about and the books are always great!

  5. I also have The Secret Lives of Dresses! I have yet to read it, but it sounds interesting and the cover is very pretty!

  6. @The Fiction FairyI love the cover and am really enjoying the book. I have about 100 pages left and am hoping to finish it today!

  7. I've seen the Cleopatra book on so many lists and in reviews...I may just have to give that one a try. Happy reading!

    Here's my Monday:

  8. I have two new projects coming up. My reading load will be out of control next month. Come see what I read.
