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:
Operation Mincemeat: How a Dead Man and a Bizarre Plan Fooled the Nazis and Assured an Allied Victory by Ben MacIntyre

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
Books: A Memoir by Larry McMurtry
The Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors: The Extraordinary World War II Story of the U.S. Navy's Finest Hour by James D. Hornfischer

Up Next:
What to take on my Christmas trip?
I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley - I have this audio loaded on my iPod and I think will be a good one for the drive with my sister. It's funny, and it's essays so if I listen to one or two before I get to my sister's, she won't have missed anything.
The Clan of the Cave Bear by Jean M. Auel - this is my January book club book. It's also enormous. Which is a good thing to bring on a trip as it won't take up much room (mass market) but will keep me entertained for a while. Luckily, I have read it before, but it was about 8 years ago so I should reread.
And I'm sure I'll bring another couple of books but it'll probably be a last-minute decision. I imagine they'll be novels, hopefully fun ones. The holidays are a good time for fun, funny books.

I remember when Clan of the Cave Bear was so popular at my jr. high. EVERYONE was reading it. I had fun reading wishlist and TBR books.

I Was Told There'd Be Cake sounds like it will be perfect! Enjoy!

It's been a long time since I read Clan of the Cave Bear. I loved that series. I'd like to read the newest one...but feel like I should go back and reread the previous ones to be ready for it. Just don't have the time to reread right now. :-(

Here's my Monday: http://myreadersblock.blogspot.com/2010/12/its-monday-what-are-you-reading_20.html

I read Clan of the Cave Bear several years and it was very enjoyable, almost like a guilty pleasure for me. I hope your book club has fun discussing it.
