It's Monday...What Are You Reading? (11.19.12)

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.

Unfortunately, I didn't get too much done this week. I ended up with a massive headache on Thursday and it lingered on until Sunday. The only good thing is that because I couldn't spend time reading, I got all my cleaning and most of my shopping done for Thanksgiving and got some quality crochet time in. This week is going to be busy with holiday baking, last minute shopping for the fresh vegetables, and last minute spot cleaning. Hopefully after the holiday, I will get some reading time in!

Books Completed last week:
  • Stake & Eggs by Laura Childs (review book)
Reading Now: 
  • Merry Christmas, Alex Cross by James Patterson (mine)
  • Wolf Hall by Hilary Mantel (mine)

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


  1. Enjoy the holidays and I do hope you get more reading time though you've done very well with such a little time!

  2. Sounds like a horrid headache hanging around for days!! I'd like to crochet some more flowers for scrapbooking later in the week, maybe while I listen to an audiobook :)
    Happy Thanksgiving and enjoy the holiday weekend!

  3. It was a slow week for me too. But sometimes it can't be helped and it's always good to have a bit of a break just to keep enjoying what we do.

  4. I hope your headache is completely gone. I am glad you were able to get some cleaning and other stuff done even when you couldn't read.

    I am going to be doing some holiday baking and figuring out recipes for Thursday. Thankfully my parents host Thanksgiving because I didn't get any cleaning done this weekend :)

    Have a great week and Happy Thanksgiving!

  5. Oh, headaches are the worst! I used to get them a lot more...perhaps leaving my thirty year career in a stressful job helped! lol

    Hope you have a better week. Love the look of your book list...I keep meaning to read something by Iris Johansen; I've enjoyed several of the books made into movies.

    Must read more of the Stephanie Plum books.


  6. Wow, even with a headache, you were super productive! I will start my a new book soon, Lunch with Buddha, for an upcoming TLC tour.

  7. At least you were able to get some other things accomlished! I fought a migraine and won (yay!) over the weekend. Have a great Thanksgiving.

  8. Ugh I hate it when headaches linger like that! Enjoy your holiday prep

    Have a great reading week!
