It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme is now hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books.
Books completed last week:
She's So Dead to Us by Kieran Scott.
I did a ton of volunteering for a Fundraising 5K for the Library last Saturday which raised over $11,000 in pre-registrations alone! I'm not sure what the final total was, but I expect it will be substantial. Woo hoo! Also, The Known World is really dragging me down. I've had given up on it a while ago but it's for my book club on Thursday. I'll pick back up once this book is behind me.
Books I gave up on:
The Fall of the House of Walworth by Geoffrey O'Brien
Books I am currently reading/listening to:
The Known World by Edward P. Jones
Up Next:
The Sound of a Wild Snail Eating by Elisabeth Tova Bailey
The Great Typo Hunt: Two Friends Changing the World, One Correction at a Time by Jeff Deck and Benjamin D. Herson
The Upside of Irrationality: The Unexpected Benefits of Defying Logic at Work and at Home by Dan Ariely

I had book club issues too -- wanted to give up on The Sweet By and By -- but managed to get thru...barely. Blech.
I've heard such good things about A Known World...sorry it is dragging you down.
My Monday list is here:
