It's Monday - What are you Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at bookjourney to allow us to share with others in the book-loving cyberworld what is on our reading plates.
This week, the only book I finished was A Novel Bookstore by Laurence Cosse. I abandoned Freedom after 20 pages because it just wasn't doing anything for me.
Books in progress:
- Emma by Jane Austen
- Mary Tudor: Princess, Bastard, Queen by Anna Whitelock
- Parrot & Olivier in America by Peter Carey
The latter part of the week was slightly tumultuous for me. An employee's domestic situation brought itself into my workplace and somehow my office (and a few others) was targeted. I arrived at work on Thursday to find that my desk had been trashed with equipment overturned and just about everything else scattered on the floor. Thankfully nobody was physically injured and the property damage was minimal, but it was still a scary situation -- you know it wasn't something personally directed at you, but it feels that way nonetheless. Hopefully this week will be less dramatic.
