“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.
I’m still working away at Pride and Prejudice. It’s one of those books that you need to sit down and focus on, and unfortunately I didn’t get enough opportunities to do that this week.
I’m a one-book-at-a-time kind of girl, but this week I broke that rule by starting Breakfast at Tiffany’s by Truman Capote.
On Saturday I needed to return the Jane Eyre tapes, and although my TBR stack was definitely not in any need of increase, who can resist taking a look at a few books?
As mentioned, I found Breakfast at Tiffany’s, which also includes three short stories. Very excited about this one! So much that I started reading it in the park outside the library.
I also picked up In Her Shoes by Jennifer Weiner. I haven’t read anything by Weiner before, and had been wanted to read this one for a while. Now seemed as good a time as any.
Yesterday I visited the library known as my Dad’s bookshelves. All his books are numbered and catalogued, so it counts. From this visit came 1984 by George Orwell, which will be part of my Back to School Challenge.
Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
I had one book arrive in the mail this week – Off Season by Anne Rivers Siddons. This was my very first contest win, courtesy of Stacy at Stacy’s Books.
