Hello and welcome to another fun addition of It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?
This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!
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 telling me how many you visited. **You do not have to have a blog to participate! You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.

This week… was a hard week. Probably the hardest I have had in a long long time and I am still recovering. If you have been here this week… you know what I am talking about. Here are the posts that I put up this past week:
Sleepers Run by Henry Mosquera (book review)
The Night Strangers by Chris Bojalian (audio review)
We The Animals by Justin Torres (audio review)
Halloween Giveaway – Laura Child’s book – Skeleton Letters, personally signed hard cover copies!
Reading went out the door after Monday and with all the happenings this week I pretty much shut down other than audio. This weekend however at the cabin led me back to Monsters Of Men by Patrick Ness which actually felt good to read and let go of all the pain.
This week I leave for the Cities on Friday afternoon and to Honduras Saturday morning. I will be gone until the following Friday. Yes, It’s Monday is planned to go on while I am away and yes, if I can get my head together here there will be posts while I am away. As for the reading plan…
Yes… yes, I am still reading. BUT – I will finish this week and I am LOVING it (and seriously need the distraction).
Frank W. Abagnale, alias Frank Williams, Robert Conrad, Frank Adams, and Robert Monjo, was one of the most daring conmen, forgers, imposters, and escape artists in history. In his brief but notorious criminal career, Abagnale donned a pilot’s uniform and copiloted a Pan Am jet, masqueraded as the supervising resident of a hospital, practiced law without a license, passed himself off as a college sociology professor, and cashed over $2.5 million in forged checks, all before he was 21. Known by the police of 26 foreign countries and all 50 states as “The Skywayman,” Abagnale lived a sumptuous life on the lam – until the law caught up with him. Now recognized as the nation’s leading authority on financial foul play, Abagnale is a charming rogue whose hilarious, stranger-than-fiction international escapades and ingenious escapes – including one from an airplane – make Catch Me If You Can an irresistible tale of deceit.
I seen the movie, found the audio on sale and I am LOVING this!
Nobody Owens, known to his friends as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a sprawling graveyard, being raised and educated by ghosts, with a solitary guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor of the dead. There are dangers and adventures in the graveyard for a boy. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, then he will come under attack from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family . . .
Still in a bit of creepy October spooky mood, this one should be just the fix… plus I have always wanted to read Gaiman.
Tuesday watch for my fun audio review of Snow Flower and The Secret Fan as well as a movie review and giveaway!
That is all I am going to plan for this week as I suspect as Friday ekes closer I will be busy planning and prepping.
