It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment. You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
Last weeks winner (using Random.Org) was:
Congratulations! Please choose an item out of the PRIZE BOX and email me your choice with your mailing address as well! firstname.lastname@example.org
** And on a special note I totally overhauled the Prize Box earlier today and it is filled with new book choices! So many in fact that I think for this next week we will have two winners!!! Why do I do this?
- I think to get the full “community” of this meme, its important to go out and visit a few blogs that are new to you…. you may just find one that you love – and you will definitely hear about books that are new to you. :D
- I always have books that I have read and reviewed that I do not wish to keep. I like passing them on so they may be enjoyed by others.
- For every 10 blogs you stop in and leave a comment on and tell me here in the comment section, I enter you for a chance to choose a book.
So how we all doing now as we come to the end of August? I find it pretty bitter sweet as I know my days of summer are flying by and fall is in the air. While I love summer for the bike rides, the reading on the deck, trips to the cabin…. I appreciate fall because life starts to slow down and I tend to read more as I have more time to read.
Here is what I had happening here this past week:
The Postcard Killers by James Patterson (audio giveaway – woo hoo!!!!!!)
Summer At Tiffany by Marjorie Hart review (this is the Wordshaker online book club review!)
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins review (with a link to a spoiler page so if you have read you can stop in and hash out your thoughts with other Mockingjay addicts….:D )
Author Chat with Marjorie Hart – author of Summer at Tiffany (this 86 year old spitfire has caught my heart!)
Summer At Tiffany – Hard cover SIGNED copy of this book giveaway (ummmm….. SSSQQQUUUEEEE!)
Where Is God In Your Life by Susan Provost (A book divided into three sections for retreat ideas)
eat the Cookies, buy the Shoes by Joyce Meyer (A review of the book and the audio)
That’s my week! I actually read a few more books this week but have not had time to post their reviews yet:
To Kill A Mockingbird
I Am Nujood Age 10 and Divorced
And – I am really excited about this week! Here is what I am planning:
I will be announcing at some point this week what the next read for the Wordshaker Online Book Club will be. I am waiting on one little detail….. it’s a secret…. ;)
I am starting this one for my Bookies Book Club. This is our September read and I am so excited to finally get a chance to get into this book :D
Woo Hoo! Just in from my library reserve is this little gem that I can not wait to dive into! Doesn’t it look awesome? Doesn’t it? Huh? Huh? :D
Off the TBR Mountain(s), comes this mystery that the cooler evenings call me to. I also have two of these. Hmmmm….. what to do with the second one… what to do……. I think we will be having a giveaway!
Here is the audio I will be starting in my car this week. Fresh from Hachette I am excited to start listening to this one. I have a cabin road trip this weekend, and I may actually head up a day early to get things ready as will have guests this time. Going early means going alone and going alone means – AUDIO!!! :D
And this is a treat for my IPOD that I picked up off of Audible.com this week. I am mere moments away from starting this one and – well, I know right? It’s just calling to me!
Oh yes, my long anticipated author chat with Sarah Ockler, author of Twenty Boy Summer…. oh and yes, we are going to talk about her new book too!
So this looks like a big week for me and I obviously will not finish the audio this week, or for that matter the book club read either as I have until the second Tuesday of September to get that one done…. but it will be a fun start anyway.
I am so ready to hang out with all of you now and see what you can add to my TBR list are reading!!! :D
Please add your post link to the spot below where it says “Click Here” so I and other happy “What Are You Reading memers” can pop in and say hi! :D I hope you meet some of our newer participants this week as well as our regulars – you are all such a fun group!
