It’s Monday! What are you reading? 10/15/12

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, check it out and join in the fun! This is a great way to plan out your reading week and see what others are currently reading as well… you never know where that next “must read” book will come from!

It’s a new week once again! I hope you all had a great one. I sure did, mostly because of Dewey’s 24 Hour Read-a-Thon. What an event! Did you join in? If not you should consider doing it the next time around. I believe the next Read-a-Thon will be in April and I can’t wait! 

Read-a-Thon posts:
Preparation…this is very important! Stacks of books and stacks of snacks!

My main Read-a-Thon post, in which I updated my progress all during the event. Click the link to see which 5.5 books I read! I’m going to have a lot of reviews to do!

The Wrap up post..a fun set of questions and my hopes for the next time around.

Quick thoughts on The Cutting Season, The Lotus Eaters and Heading Out to Wonderful

Current and Upcoming Reads:
I just started Why Have Kids by Jessica Valenti. I don’t know what I’ll be picking up next. I still have a stack of books that I picked up for the Read-a-Thon, including The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed out the Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson and The Last Aloha by Gaellen Quinn.

I hope you guys all had a lovely week of reading!

  1. I want to read that 100 year old man one. I wonder if the one about the 46 year old woman climbing out the window and disappearing, only to reappear in December to claim her college degree would be a big hit?


  2. I can't wait to do the read-a-thon again, it's been about 18 months so I've got my fingers crossed for 2013. Have a great week and happy reading whatever you decide to go with 🙂


  3. The 100 Year Old Man sounds interesting, I might check that out! Impressive that you managed 5.5 books. It is Monday afternoon and I am SO tired. Not sure if it's from my lack so sleep last weekend 😉


  4. Well done for the readathon. I've been contemplating the Valenti, it looks a good discussion, though I'm not sure about the premise (and I say that as someone who's pretty set in her decisions). It'd be good to hear your thoughts on it!


  5. A movie is already being filmed of The 100 Year Old Man! I'm not sure how new the book is but I thought it was pretty recent? It's taking me a while to catch up on sleep too. I might be too old for this shit, lol.


  6. You did well with the read-a-thon. If only it had been a few days earlier I might have been able to give it a go. Weekends are a bit hectic for me, and this one definitely was! Maybe next time, I'll just do it on the days I can, close to the time.:)


  7. I'm sorry its taken me so long to get here this week – sick kids ughhh!I hope you are enjoying your reads, and I hope you love The One Hundred Year Old Man Who Climbed Out the Window and Disappeared as much as I did!Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out
