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.

My past week started out kind of slow… I had several books/audio at the point of being done… but nothing done. Then midway through the week the dam broke and everything started finishing up one after another. Here is what my week looked like:
Could I Please Get A Huck Finn Lite? (My thoughts on the changes that are being made to the Mark Twain books)
Audio Suggestions (A master list of what you think the best audio books around are)
The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton (The Bookies book club January read and review)
365 Thank You’s by John Kralik (an inspirational book that put me on the path of a personal challenge)
We Are All Welcome Here by Elizabeth Berg (My first Berg… and not my last….. oh wow.)
I signed up for a Polar Bear Plunge in March… in Minnesota…. in a tiara and prom dress. TRUE story
Finger Lickin’ Fifteen by Janet Evanovich (A visit back to a series I used to never miss)
It’s not too late to join the WHERE Are You Reading Challenge
The Nineteenth Element is still up for a signed copy giveaway!
Some Girls Are by Courtney Summers – review up on Tuesday
As for this week I have some good things happening I am pretty excited about!
Yes… another Berg. My second. The first went so smoothly and left me admiring this author enough to reserve four more of her audio (all of which are now on my kitchen table). This one currently resides in my car cd player.
Last Monday I was at a loss of what to listen to on my IPOD so I asked you what you would recommend. Between the Monday post and the Audio Suggestion post I ran on Tuesday, the suggestions flew in. This was one of them and having started it yesterday I have to say I truly love this story so far being told by the dog, Enzo. I am finding it funny and sad all rolled into one.
My friend Angie from the Bookies book club suggested this one and I know a recommendation from Angie has to be good. This one is just starting in my Kitchen CD player. It sounds fascinating! (click on the picture and read for yourself!)
The Butterfly Garden is the book I am starting today. I discovered it at Wal-Mart and after reading the back about the author being raised falsely as the child of a man on America’s Most Wanted, I knew I had to know more.
And finally this book was recommended by my friend Wendy when we were at Barnes and Noble last week. I know many of you have read this book. I have not. But… I will.
I have a few I hope to finish up from past weeks, in the event I finish up the reading I have listed here. And one more thing… if you are not aware, or in case you forgot, this weekend is the BLOGGIESTA and it is not too late to sign up. I have participated each time and always come out learning something new or updating a blog project that I have put off. Stop by to check it out, it is not too late to sign up.
