It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

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

I am in Nashville, as I participated in the Country Music (Half) Marathon on Saturday. As I don't know what kind of internet access I'll have at my parents' house, I am writing this early, so this week is going to be a little more guesswork than usual. I am bringing 4 audiobooks, and at least 1 print book. I am listing the audios under "currently reading" although 1-2 of them likely will be "read" by Monday, and I have no idea what my print book will be.

Books completed last week:
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (Millennium, #1) by Stieg Larsson, Reg Keeland (Translator)
My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist's Personal Journey by Jill Bolte Taylor

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein
Grayson by Lynne Cox
An Exact Replica of a Figment of My Imagination: A Memoir by Elizabeth McCracken

Books I Still Need to Write Reviews On:
My Stroke of Insight

Up Next:
still focusing on Penguin/Putnam books for April!
The Real Wizard of Oz: The Life and Times of L. Frank Baum by Rebecca Loncraine
The Brightest Star in the Sky by Marian Keyes
Rude Awakenings of a Jane Austen Addict by Laurie Viera Rigler

I hope it doesn't bug anyone that I never seem to actually read my "Up Next" books. Since I rarely know what I will read next until seconds before, I don't try to predict, but I am only listing books on my TBR list that I do plan to get to eventually.

I'm glad to see you liked Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. Generally books with a lot of hype kind of turn me off, but this was an exception to that rule. Now you'll have to read the other two. Enjoy your week!

I really enjoyed The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo. I have heard fantastic things about Stein;s The Art of Racing. Happy reading! My Monday: http://www.rundpinne.com/2010/04/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-26.html

First off Congrats on the half marathon!!!! What an incredible achievement!

I have had My Stroke of Insight on my TBR for over a year. I need to read it soon. I look forward to your review.

I have seen The Art Of Racing In The Rain around and it sounds interesting. I was burned in the last year reading a book with a talking dog so I am hesitant but have heard good things on this one. :)

Have a great week!

I have all three of your current books (if they are still currently being listened to or read) here but haven't yet read any. I'll be curious which you think should move to the head of the queue.
