It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

This meme is now hosted by Sheila at One Person's Journey Through a World of Books.

Books completed last week:
Why I Hate Canadians by Will Ferguson
The Checklist Manifesto: How to Get Things Right by Atul Gawande
Sarah, Plain and Tall by Sarah MacLachlan

Books I Gave Up On: none

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
The Secret Life of Words: How English Became English by Henry Hitchings
Confessions of a Shopaholic by Sophie Kinsella

Up next (more MacMillan):
The Writing Class by Jincy Willet
Snobs by Julian Fellowes
Dreaming Water by Gail Tsukiyama
and (not a MacMillan) Outlander by Diana Gabaldon (I have a long flight this week and I promised a friend I would finally get around to this, which she has been pressing on me for many years.)

Outlander is good, but very long. You are going to need a very very long flight.

Carin Siegfried said...

cross country with a layover, and then back the next day, so I should have more than enough time! Provided that I can avoid doing work on the plane.

I've had several Outlander recs, but the length has always deterred me. And it's a ginormous series, right? I'll be interested to see how you progress with this one. :)

I love the sound of your books! Great titles! I need to spend some time looking at these reviews! :) Have a good week!

I like the idea of that How English Became English book. Sounds cool.

Staci said...

Outlander is spectacular IMHO!!! I loved Sarah Plain and Tall...Have a great week of reading!

Christina T said...

I enjoyed Outlander and Confessions of a Shopaholic. I hope you enjoy your books and have a safe trip!

Here is what I'm reading.

I have Dreaming Water on my shelf. So far, I've only really liked Street of a Thousand Blossoms by Tsukiyama. Her other stuff I've read wasn't nearly as good. I'm interested to see what you think of Dreaming Water.

The Checklist Manifesto is on my TBR list; I'll have to check out your review! Your list looks great; here's what I'm reading.
