It's Monday! What are you reading? (August 31, 2009)


It's Monday! What are you reading? is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye's Book Blog; participants discuss what they read the previous week and what the plan to read in the coming week.

Last week was slow, and no excuses about that. However, the upcoming weeks are shaping up to be interesting; I have a number of review books on deck, and they all seem pretty varied in type and intended audience.

But between a dentist appointment with sedation that will conk me out for all of tomorrow, an appearance by my husband on the Today Show on Wednesday and our one-year anniversary on Sunday, I expect my amount of reading this week will match my amount of reading last week.

Last week's action:

*Nothing finished--shame on me!

Perusing now:

*Playing House by Fredrica Wagman (and the end is within spitting distance, as my grandmother would say)

Stay tuned for:

*Benny & Shrimp by Katarina Mazetti
*Everything Sucks by Hannah Friedman
*Friends Like These by Danny Wallace


  1. Only one book read for me last week, which is kind of unusual but we traveled and enjoyed things besides books (shocking, right?) :D

    Benny & Shrimp is on my wish list!

  2. I didnt break any record either last week... LOL. I had the three book blog tour but those had been done for awhile.

  3. Better luck finding time to read this week! My list is here:

  4. Today Show appearance!?! Hubby!?! Tell all! :) What's going on? (Oh, hope tomorrow goes well...yikes!)

  5. J. Kaye:

    He's one of five finalists for Esquire Magazine's Best Dressed Real Man!! I'm so thrilled for him, especially since I've always thought that about him. (Not that I'm biased or anything. :^)

    And thanks for the well-wishes for the dentist appointment! I'm not too worried since sedation is a wonderful, wonderful thing.

  6. Get out! That is so blasted cool! I'll keep my fingers crossed for! Seriously awesome!
