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.

**Remember to qualify to win you need to stop back and let me know how many of the Monday What Are You reading Meme’s you commented on. One entry per every 10. I do this to encourage visits to new blogs and to build community. 😀
I had an insanely busy week this past week and for the first time in a long time I did not make it around to visit all the participants blogs. I really enjoy doing that but the days got away from me and with huge commitments almost every evening I was exhausted.
The good news is that as of this morning I am over the crazy business for now and have a pretty quiet week ahead that I am so looking forward to!
Here is my past week in the literary sense:
My Interview with Nat from In Spring It Is The Dawn (check out this amazing blogger who lives in Japan!)
Immanuel’s Veins by Ted Dekker with a giveaway (a good one from Dekker and a bonus giveaway!)
Minnesota/Wisconsin Book Blogger Meet Up Planned in October (I am working with Reagan from Miss Remmer’s Reviews to attend a book festival in the twin cities and hopefully create a meet up around this event. Check out the details! 😀
The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo – Review coming this week!
I’d Know You Anywhere (audio) – Review coming this week!
Gave Up On
Farenheit 451 (audio): sadly, the audio narrator was just hard to understand. In a mumble type tone I struggled to catch what he was saying and found myself losing the point because I was picking up on every few words. Even more sadly, the narrator of this audio copy I have is none other than the author, Ray Bradbury himself. I still hope to read this book some day, or perhaps I need to try the audio with a different narrator.
And yeah…. that’s about it for this week. With BBAW I really enjoyed participating and I had a giveaway a day going on and did not get a whole lot of reading done. This week…. I am hopeful will be different.
Here’s What Is Brewing For Me This Week
You know how I love a good Patterson audio! I really do! This is what will replace Fahrenheit 451 in my kitchen Cd player.
Remember the pinky swear? I know Alita from Alita Reads started this (and probably has finished!) this book last week. Our swear was to read it in September so this is a must read for me this week.
And it is also time to start this one! This is the Wordshaker on line Book Club choice that we are reading currently and discussing on October 6. It’s not to late to join in and read along with us! I received a box of signed books for giveaway from the author this week! (WOO HOO!!!) Which will go up for giveaway as we get closer to review time. Those who are reading along are automatically given a bonus entry in the upcoming giveaway.
That’s my week! I even took a nap this afternoon so I am ready to come and visit you all this time around and cant wait to see what you have been reading! Be sure to leave the link to your Monday What Are You Reading post by entering where it says “click here” below.
I hope you all have an incredible week with books and audio that take you on wonderful adventures! 😀
