It's Monday - What Are You Reading? (5.9.11)



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.

Last week was a busy week, but I did make it to the author meet and greet for Elizabeth Berg - so exciting! I also managed to spend a lot of time this past weekend reading on my porch - this has become my new favorite spot to read.
 
This week is looking to be a bit busy, but I am still hoping to get in some quality reading time.


Books Completed last week:
  •  Elizabeth I by Margaret George - review to be posted later today
Reading Now:
  • A Turn in the Road by Debbie Macomber (library book)
  • Pandora's Daughter by Iris Johansen (library audio book)
  • Cleopatra: A Life by Stacy Schiff (book club book, mine)
Next:

  • Friendship Bread by Darien Gee (review book)

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

  2. What a great list! So I immediately checked out Friendship Bread. Last year my Mother in Law was gifted some friendship bread and started and before I knew it everyone in our community was making it. (I gifted it to many of our neighbours as well).

    Have a great reading week!

  3. There are a lot of books on your list that I want to read! Friendship Bread looks interesting and I've been wanting to try Debbie Macomber's books. I still need to read Elizabeth Berg too.

    I hope you enjoy your reading this week.

  5. I'm curious to see what you think of "Cleopatra" - I want to get to it when I have more time to really spend digesting it.
