It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (10.15.12)




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 past week was a crazy one for me. I had minor surgery on my left arm to remove a cyst or a FLT as the doctor called it (funny little thing) and because I am left-handed, it provided a minor inconvenience for the first few days - I couldn't type, write, or do much with my arm. Then, I ended up catching the cold my husband had all last week - and of course, I end up getting it much worse. I pretty much spent the weekend on the couch, alternating between reading and sleeping, and watching some tv while crocheting. Hopefully this week will be a bit better!

Books Completed last week:

  • Zoo by James Patterson (mine)
  • Promise Canyon by Robyn Carr (e-book)
  • Home to Big Stone Gap by Adriana Trigiani (mine)
  • NYPD Red by James Patterson (mine)

  8. Sorry that you got that cold. My hubby has it and I am trying not to get it! ;o). I've got a couple of those FLTs on my leg and have to decide when to take care of them. Have a great reading week.

  9. I'm curious to hear your thoughts on Love Anthony. I loved Lisa's first book, the second one not so much. So I'm a little not sure about the third one.

  10. I hope you're feeling better after your surgery. The book you're reading I'm most interested in is Wolf Hall. It's supposed to be good, so I hope you enjoy it!
