It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme is hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog.

Books completed last week: none, sigh

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte (this is a reread for my book club)

Books I Still Need to Write Reviews On: N/A

Up Next:
Eventide by Kent Haruf
Anonyponymous: The Forgotten People Behind Everyday Words by John Marciano
People of the Book by Geraldine Brooks
Last week wasn't the best reading-wise. I had thought I'd get a lot read due to a cross-country flight, but at the last minute we didn't go all the way. Took the 1 hour flight to Atlanta. Got on the plane to CA. Taxied to the runway. Waited in a long line of planes to take off. Then the pilot announces since the air conditioning isn't working, we have to go back. Takes a little while as we have to get a gate reassigned to us. Then workmen come on board for 45 minutes to try to fix it. They fail. We then get off the plane. They find us another plane to fly to CA on. But by now, it's been a few hours. We are now due to land just as our meeting in California is scheduled to end. Hmm. So instead my boss and I rebook ourselves back home. That was quite possibly the most expensive lunch at the ATL Popeye's ever. And I missed out on 10 hours (round trip) of flying time, which in my opinion is the very best reading time.

ooh! Jane Eyre is my most favorite book ever! I've thought many times that I would end up changing my favorite book to something else, but Jane Eyre always tops them.

Happy Reading this week!

Jane Eyre has been on my list FOREVER ( and the list keeps getting longer and longer) ! I'm going to have to step up the pace a little. Enjoy your reading week !

Oooh I love Jane Eyre! I'm hoping to reread it sometime this year - and I only read it for the first time last year :) Enjoy the books you have coming up this week!

Here's what I'm reading.

Msslaydbug, you should read it! I read it on my own when I was 23 and I loved it. Right now I'm struggling a little but that's because it's long (over 400 pages) and I left it until just a week before book club when I had a lot of other committments. I feel like I'm back in college actually, doing homework. But in a good way (I liked college.)

Yes, I have a few of those reading weeks where none were completed. I can't afford any this year if I am going to make my goal though. Working to catch up since I was so behind this month.

Here's to a better week!
