It's Monday -- What are you Reading?


  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 I finished the following books:
  Books in Progress:
  Book Abandoned (for now):
  What are you reading this week?


  1. Ah, The Tortilla Curtain! I loved it, hope you do too. I can imagine you abandoned Bloodlands. Well, I wouldn't have started it, but maybe it's something that interests you on a good day.

    Enjoy the week!

  2. Good morning! I'm still working on The Hot House (Pete Earley) and Tinkers (Paul Harding). Just started Borkmann's Point by Håkan Nesser, which is the second in a detective series out of Sweden.

    How is the Tortilla Curtain? I love TC Boyle's short stories - is that a collection or a novel? And I certainly don't blame you for abandoning Bloodlands...those history tomes are hard anyway, and that subject matter is downright hideous to approach for days on end.

  3. Good Morning-

    I am glad to hear that I am not the only one who has had to abandon a book for a while!
    Hope you will stop by for a visit

  4. Don Quixote...that brings back memories from college. I didn't think I'd like it but wound up loving it.

    Here's my Monday:

  5. I have liked T.C. Boyle for a really long time, though I have not read anything new from him in awhile. I hope you enjoy The Tortilla Curtain. I am reading Pox, An American History. It's about the smallpox epidemic in the early 1900's and all the problems it caused. Very interesting stuff!

  6. How do you juggle so many? I'm reading Death of a Chimney Sweep by M.C. Beaton.

  7. Judith -- The Tortilla Curtain isn't doing much for me yet, but it's still early so I'll keep on with it.

    What Book Today and Zibilee -- This is my first T.C. Boyle so we'll see how it goes.

    Bev -- I'm enjoying Don Quixote, though he is, shall we say, a few sandwiches short of a picnic

    Lisa -- I find it so hard to abandon a book but Bloodlands is one that you really need to be in the proper frame of mind for to appreciate its message.

    Ann -- As long as I'm reading books that don't have much in common, I can read more than one at a time. The three I'm reading right now are all quite different.

  8. blogger just ate my comment.

    I have not made progress on DQ yet. Here's hoping I make progress before next week. Am starting to panic about having it read by our meeting!


What do you think? Good or bad, I'd love to hear from you (but be nice - I'm sensitive!)
