Monday Round Up (04.19.10)
“What are you reading on Mondays” is a weekly event hosted by Sheila that lets you share books you’ve read over the past week and books you have coming up.
Started: Uglies by Scott Westerfeld
Up next: I’ve been receiving books much faster than I’ve been reading them, so other than a couple books already en route to me, I’ve put myself on a book-acquisition ban. Right now I have 40 books sitting on my shelf, all of which I really want to read. But how am I supposed to pick just one out of forty? Such a tough decision! Starting this week, I’ve decided to let random.org make that choice for me. We’ll see how long this lasts.
So. Let’s pick the first random book. And the winner is…. #18 – The Secret Shopper’s Revenge by Kate Harrison!
I’m trying to keep myself away from the public library at the moment, but I borrowed these from the private library known as My Mom’s Bookshelf:
The Brightest Star In The Sky by Marian Keyes [I love Marian Keyes, but I face her latest with mixed feelings, even before opening the first page. If you’ve read it, let me know what you thought of it!]
Digging To America by Anne Tyler
Mailbox Monday is a weekly event hosted by Marcia at The Printed Page.
won: The Heretic’s Daughter by Kathleen Kent (won from Kristi)
My birthday was just over a week ago, and I got a couple lovely bookish gifts that I shared last week, but I also got … gift cards! With which I bought the following:
The Neverending Story by Michael Ende
The Princess Bride by William Goldman
Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer
Very Valentine by Adriana Trigiani
What are you reading? Did any new books find their way into your possession?
