I did not finish a lot of books during this last week but I did actually get a lot of others things done that will lead to great reading this year. Here is what I accomplished this past week:
I finally sat down and planned out what Challenges I wanted to be a part of this year. This was fun and I think I can be successful in all of them.
The 2011 WHERE are you reading Map is up and now has three (woo hoo 3!!!) pegs on it coming out of the first week of January so I thrilled about that. You still have time to join in! 😀 You can see my current map at the bottom of all my current book reviews in 2011.
- The Nineteenth Element by John Bercher – with a SIGNED giveaway copy!
Peace, Locomotion by Jacqueline Woodson – audio review (this is one I think is best enjoyed in audio!)
Author Chat with Rhonda Hayter (if you have Middle Graders (MG) in your life, this is an author to pay attention to!
In Memory Of A Book Blogger (sadly, I learned this past week of the passing of a regular commenter and a fellow book lover)
Also – new in the house from my super fun road trip with my friend Wendy this weekend to St. Cloud and of course Barnes and Noble:
Yup! I could not turn down the chance to pick up th LOST encyclopedia at 50% off!!! AND Matched has been on my wish list for awhile and Wendy recommended Night by Elie Wiesel.
That was pretty much my week, but considering that I had work all week and a meeting every evening : Monday – Thursday, I feel pretty good about what I accomplished.
For this week here is what I currently have going on as well as what I hope to accomplish:
I have not read Evanovich in years but while looking for something to listen to in my kitchen CD player at the library this one caught my eye. I had heard that the audio’s were good and thought I would give this a try…. I am currently on disc 2 and enjoying the read!
Fresh from my library, Some Girls Are was on my wish list for 2010 and I just never got to it. So – here it is, on my kitchen table and in the plans for this week!
I am listening to We Are All Welcome Here in my car. Currently on disc 3 I am in awe of this one so far. Key words of interest: Polio, Iron Lung, Paralyzed
Currently on the IPod…… Nothing….. nada. After finishing Peace, Locomotion yesterday I have not looked to figure out what I want to download next to listen to on my IPOD. I am open to suggestions – what would you recommend on audio?
Kitchen Boy that I am currently reading from last week has been put on hold for me to finish in the next 36 hours: The Forgotten Garden which is my book club read for this Tuesday.
There you have it. I am anxious to see what you are reading these cool January days and nights. I will popping in as I can to check that out! LINK up with the Linky below and I highly encourage each of us to take time to check out some of the other participants blogs. It’s fun and appreciated and you never know where you may find that next great book recommendation – or blog you wish to follow.
