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 Indian in the Cupboard by Lynne Reid Banks
Oranges by John McPhee
Books: A Memoir by Larry McMurtry

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
The Emperor of All Maladies: A Biography of Cancer by Siddhartha Mukherjee
Peyton Place by Grace Metalious
I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

This last book is an audio, and I really was not feeling it and am on the verge of giving up. I heard great things, and I was very hopeful that these quirky essays would be funny and distracting, but I'm finding them to be neither. Not even all that quirky.
Up Next:
Voluntary Madness: My Year Lost and Found in the Loony Bin by Norah Vincent
Chicken with Plums by Marjane Satrapi
Random Family: Love, Drugs, Trouble, and Coming of Age in the Bronx by Adrian Nicole LeBlanc

I've heard so much about Cake, but haven't read it.
Sounds like a great week!

Cake is on my TBR pile, maybe it's one to reassess it's place there.

I finished my Cybils reading and posted a lot of nonfiction reviews. Come see what I'm reading now.

I have always wanted to read the Indian In The Cupboard!
