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:
Flawless: Inside the Largest Diamond Heist in History by Scott Andrew Selby and Greg Campbell
Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women's Prison by Piper Kerman
The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith
The Other Wes Moore: One Name, Two Fates by Wes Moore

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese
Reading the OED : One Man, One Year, 21,730 Pages by Ammon Shea

Up Next:
These are the books that have been on my TBR list the longest (they might not have been on my bookshelves the longest, but they're certainly up there.) Are they worth it? Should I get around to reading them? Or give them away?

The Bonesetter's Daughter by Amy Tan
Empire Falls by Richard Russo
Written on the Body by Jeanette Winterson

Orange is the New Black sounds interesting. I use to work in a prison ( although it was a men's prison)still I think I would enjoy reading this one. Have a great week.

I got the No. 1 Ladies detective Agency for Christmas and still haven't read it, but I've heard good things about it.

Have another great reading week!

I was sitting next to a friend at the pool last week and she pulled out Cutting for Stone -- she raved about it.
Looks like a great week ahead.
I haven't read any of your TBR queries -- I would hate to date the number of years some books have been sitting there waiting.

How did you like The Other Wes Moore? I heard about it on a podcast recently and it sounds fascinating.
