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:
The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan (reread)

Books I gave up on:
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
I was going to read this book before giving it to my Dad, and I did read the first 70 pages, but I only had 3 days to read over 400 pages, and it was a pretty dry read. While Operation Mincemeat read like a thriller, this one didn't as much and I think is more liekly to appeal to a WWII-super-fan. Which my Dad is, but I am not.

Books I am currently reading/listening to:
I Was Told There'd Be Cake by Sloane Crosley

Up Next:
The Long Winter (Little House #6) by Laura Ingalls Wilder
Little Town on the Prairie (Little House #7) by Laura Ingalls Wilder
These Happy Golden Years (Little House #8) by Laura Ingalls Wilder
The First Four Years (Little House #9) by Laura Ingalls Wilder

I usually reread these 4 Little House every year. Last year I reread the first 4 instead.

I was disappointed in I Was Told There'd be Cake, but I know it is a popular book -- I hope you have better luck with it.

Enjoy your week

That is so awesome that you are reading the Little House On The Prairie books. I loved those when I was growing up.
