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:
The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Little Town on the Prairie by Laura Ingalls Wilder
These Happy Golden Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
Pretty in Plaid: A Life, a Witch, and a Wardrobe, or, the Wonder Years Before the Condescending, Egomanical, Self-Centered Smart-Ass Phase by Jen Lancaster
I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley
Books: A Memoir by Larry McMurtry
The Age of Innocence by Edith Wharton

I rarely have this many books going at once. But my BF reminded me that I can pick my first book of 2011, and I decided to go with the Jen Lancaster as I know it's really funny, and I've been saving it. Good to start the year off with a laugh. The McMurtry is one I don'tneed to read all the way through all at once. I can read it in bits and it's great that way. In fact, it might be too much all at once. I like the Wharton, but it's a mass market and I'm traveling again next weekend and mass markets travel so well, I think it'll be fine with a week's break in the middle. The Crosley I am really not liking as much as I'd been lead to believe I would, but I'm going to stick it out. After all, it's an audio so it's not much trouble to read, and I did pay for it.

Up Next:
The First Four Years by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean Auel (book club is at end of January)

You did great! I could manage to read only one.

Wish you and your family a very Happy New Year. May 2011 filled with reading!

Here is my Monday: Mailbox/What Are You Reading? post!

The title of your Lancaster novel is hilarious! If the rest of the book is as good, it should be a wonderful read! Ashamed to say that I haven't yet read The Age of Innocence, but I have promised myself that this year I will be reading more classics - started with Anna Karenina :). Audio books are weird for me; unless the narration is superb, I always find myself thinking, "I think I would like this better on paper". Happy New Year!

I enjoyed both The First Four Years and The Age of Innocence. Happy reading.

I didn't get as much reading last week. I have been sick with a cold and I was traveling.
