It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

One Persons Journey Through a Whole of Books is the host of a weekly meme that highlights the books you have read in the past week, the books you are currently reading, and the books you have the intention of reading in the week ahead. It's a way to get a focus on the enormous pile of books that you may have waiting for you. It's also a really fun way to see what everyone else is reading and to see what is out there.

If you comment on at least 10 other blog sites, you can earn an entry to win one book from Bookjourney's amazing Prize Box. So what are you waiting for? Head on over, participate, meet new people, learn about new books, and have a lot of fun doing it!

Books read this week:
1) Rabbit: Chasing Beth Rider by Ellen C. Maze - I loved this book. A whole new twist on the vampire world.

2) Graceling by Kristin Cashore - Review coming shortly.

Books currently reading:
1) Kitty's House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughn

2) A Kiss of Fate by Mary Jo Putney

Books to be read:
1) The Moses Stone by James Becker - Review copy sent in the mail. I had intended to read this but extra work at my job left this on the shelf this week.

2) Beautiful Creatures

3) Fire by Kristin Cashore

4) Lone Star Legend by Gwendolyn Zepeda

I think this may be somewhat ambitious as work has been rearing its ugly head and I've had to stay later this past week and more than likely next week too. The literacy committee is in full swing trying to get the grade 10 students fully prepared for the OSSLT test in April. It seems kind of ironic that literacy at work is interrupting my own exploration of literacy at home, doesn't it?

  11. I just heard about another cool etymology book: The Lexicographer's Dilemma: The Evolution of 'Proper' English, from Shakespeare to South Park by Jack Lynch. Do you listen to the podcast for A Way With Words? If not, I think you'd really like it.
