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 knew a week like this was bound to happen. Between my busy schedule and battling this cold and fever I accomplished very little in the reading department. Very little.
Here is my week:
SPEAK the movie (review)
Noah’s Castle by John Rowe Townsend (book review)
The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath (book review and Bookies Book Club Review)
Pictures With Minnesota Authors (Twin Cities Books Festival)
The Changing World Of Publication: Getting Books To Readers (this was what took up all my weekend time, the Twin Cities Book Festival – but sooooooo worth it. 😛
Ok… I guess looking at that it does look like I was active. It didn’t feel like it, but two reviews, a movie review and a bookish topic isn’t bad with being gone all weekend. 😀
I have a lot of reviews to write yet. This week I am keeping it light so I can catch up on some of last weeks reading goals. Coming off of the festival I am going with a book that was given to me for review, and one that was a blogger recommendation.
This book was given to me for review from author Carl Brookins at the Twin Cities Book Festival. Carl currently has 9 books out and I am interested to see what this author, who is a member of the Minnesota Crime Wave, has to say.
I was reading My Friend Amy’s Faith in Fiction post this past weekend and she mentioned this book that I had never heard of. When I mentioned that in a comment on her post she replied saying it was one of her favorite books. On my way home today I stopped at Barnes and Noble in St. Cloud and they had a copy which is now… my copy. 🙂
I am ready for a little down time with a cup (or two) of tea and seeing what you are reading! This is 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!
