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:

What a great weekend! I had a great time being a part of the Dewey read-a-thon and I am hoping many of you participated too. If you did, you probably have a few more books read this week than usual. I do! I have yet to write reviews but I did make a small dent in the TBR! 😀 I think Lynne, from Lynne’s Book Reviews, put it best… today is like a book hang over. Little groggy…. but happy. 😛
So here’s what this past week looked like for me:
When Life Throws you Lemons Make Cranberry Juice! by Shari Bookstaff (review)
In The Presence Of My Enemies by Gracia Burnham (review and author sighting post from my friend Barb!)
The Wife’s Tale by Lori Lansens (Review with Wordshakers on line book club)
Lori Lansens HUGE Book Giveaway – 9 books – ALL SIGNED!!! YOu don’t want to miss this!!!
The Absolute True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie (Fantastic Book! Did I mention it is also banned?)
Author Chat with Lori Lansens (Author of The Wife’s Tale, The Girls’ and Rush Home Road)
Author Chat with Bill Walker (author of Titanic 2012 and A Note From An Old Acquaintance)
I read several books during the read a thon and have not wrote a single review yet. GAH! Oh well…. 😛
Here’s what my plan is for this week
I loved this author’s book, Water For Elephants. I was excited to see this book come out and hope it is a wonderful story!
This book looks fantastic. Doesn’t it? Look at it. See? I told you. I seen this on another blog and thought it looked sooooo good. 😀
Pete is 13 the summer the Preacher Man comes to his small town, vulnerable with both adolescent yearning and the need to find religious fulfillment. His parents are lapsed church-goers, who neither share nor encourage their son’s deeper convictions. The Preacher Man, with mesmerizing blue eyes, is a traveling evangelist who holds revivalist meetings in Pete’s town that summer; Pete finds in him a companion who can understand his feelings about God without speaking a word. As the Preacher Man takes on Christ-like proportions in his mind, Pete decides to travel with the man when he leaves town. Pete waits for him all night, his bags packed, feeling as if he were called to this journey. But Rufus, his best friend and a confirmed atheist, is the one who tells Pete that the Preacher Man has run off with a woman. A year later, Pete understands that the Preacher Man’s fallibility was of this earth, not to be confused with a betrayal by God.
I am keeping it light this week. I have meetings Monday, Tuesday (BOOK CLUB!) and Wednesday evenings. Then Friday I leave for the cities for the Twin Cities Book Festival and Minnesota/Wisconsin meet up. Seven of us will meet there! More on that later this week. 😀
I am so looking forward to stopping by and seeing what you are reading! This is actually one of my favorite things to do each week. Add your What Are You Reading post to the linky where it says CLICK HERE and we all can visit the posts!
