It's Monday...What Are You Reading (7.11.11)

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.

I have not taken on any blog tours this month because I will be doing a fair amount of traveling over the next few weeks. As for my reading, I am trying to get some of the books I've had sitting around done so that I can pass them on to family members.

  • Now You See Her by James Patterson (mine)
  • Beachcombers by Nancy Thayer (library audio book)
  • The Knitting Diaries by Debbie Macomber, Susan Mallery & Christina Skye (mine)

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


  1. Wow! You have lots of books going on there :)

    A productive week I can see.

    I am getting better at having a couple of books on the go. One main read and another for those moments when I want to read but there is a lot going on around me.

    Have a great reading week.


  2. Beachcombers sounds good - perfect for summer! Enjoy our week :)

  3. @Dizzy C Before I started blogging, I never read more than one book at a time. Now I usually have at least one book going, sometimes two, and an audio.

  4. @Sheila (Bookjourney) Beachcombers was great and I loved that it was set in Nantucket - the perfect beach read!

  5. As celebration for the new Bloggers' Alliance for Nonfiction Devotees (, I'm cheering on everyone's nonfiction reading today. So, yay for Cleopatra!

  6. Our reading and TBR piles are very similar. Have a wonderful week!!

  7. Wow, looks like a great list for you - a nice mix of summer reading!

    I'm re-reading the last Harry Potter book before the movie comes out. Enjoy your books this week!


  8. I tried reading Cleopatra: A Life earlier this year but didn't have the time to finish it. I hope you have better luck with it! I liked Beachcombers when I read it and I've been meaning to try some of Nancy Thayer's other books. Have a great week!
