It's Monday! What are you reading? - November 27

Ok so it's been about a month, but as you can see it wasn't a huge reading month. But I'm going to try to get back on a weekly schedule.

Peek Inside a Book - I'm Just No Good at Rhyming

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.

This week I read I'm Just No Good at Rhyming and Other Nonsense for Mischievous Kids and Immature Grown-upsby Chris Harris and Illustrated by Lane Smith.



It Begins:

On Page 56: So this is from the page numbered 56, but it's not the 'real' page 56 cause this book has some issues with the page numbering. 

Verdict: Hilarious and I think I'm going to buy it, because it's one I want to pick up again and again.

It's Monday! What are you reading? October 23

So my plan is, each Monday to update anyone who reads this on what I'm currently reading and what I may have finished in the last week.

Peek Inside a Book - Dance Upon the Air

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.

I just finished reading The Blinds by Adam Sternbergh. I really enjoyed it but when I got home from my book discussion Wednesday night I wanted a comfort read and not one of the 10 books currently checked out from the library. So I opened up the OverDrive App (great library service) and searched for what Nora Roberts titles were avaliable and ended up seeing that book 1 of the Three Sisters Island trilogy was free. I don't think I've re-read this series so it had to be checked out!

This week the book Dance Upon the Airby Nora Roberts caught my eye.

Peek Inside a Book - Origin

This week the book Origin by Dan Brown caught my eye.

It Begins: As the ancient cogwheel train clawed its way up the dizzying incline, Edmond Kirsch surveyed the jagged mountaintop above him. In the distance, built into the face of a sheer cliff, the massive stone monastery seemed to hang in space, as if magically fused to the vertical precipice. 

On Page 56: "You sat in that monastery's sacrosanct library and told a bishop that his entire belief system is delusional!" Langdon exclaimed. "Did you expect him to serve you tea and cake?"
Verdict: I'…

So Adam over at Roof Beam Reader is hosting year 5 of Austen in August. So this month I'll be feature books I'm either reading or want to feature for Austen in August.


This week the book Letters to Alice on First Reading Jane Austenby Jane Austen caught my eye.



It Begins: Letter One
The City of Invention Cairns, Australia, October My dear Alice,  It was good to get your letter. I am a long way from home here; almost in exile. And you ask me for advice, which is warming, and makes me believe I must know something; or at any rate more than you.

About a month ago I got into a Twitter discussion about The Godfather. We were discussing how great both the book and the movie were. This conversation revealed that one of the participants hadn't read the novel.  It has been a number of years since I read the novel and here I was saying how great it was. I wanted to reread it to make sure I had my suggestions right.


This week the book The Godfather by Mario Puzo caught my eye.

Peek Inside a Book - Come Sundown

When I was deciding to come back to the blog I was looking through all the blogging memes that the blogs I read follow. I had done Book Beginnings and The Friday 56 a handful of times, but over at Mixed Book Bag, JC merged them together and I really like that idea.  So borrowing from her I'm going to start linking up to both Book Beginnings on Friday from Rose City Reader and The Friday 56 with Freda's Voice.


This week the book Come Sundown by Nora Roberts is my current read.

It Begins: Prologue - Western Montana, 1991 -
Alice Bodine relieved herself behind a thin screen of lodgepole pines. 

On Page 56: He had the novices on a couple of reliable hacks - though the bay they called Biff could be as lazy as a teenage boy on a summer morning. He plodded along under the man while the nervous giggle rode the cooperative Maybelle.

Verdict: This novel is broken down into four parts. I'm about halfway through the second part and enjoying the story. I've already got my suspicions …

It's Monday! What are you reading? - July 10, 2017

This was a slow reading week. I'm plodding along with Princes at War and hoping to finish it up soon. I had a week off from listening to One Summer because my digital checkout through the library expired and I had to wait for another copy to become available so I could pick it back up.

My little twist to this; I work in a library IT department. We have two offices separated by a section of the fiction stacks.  Books are always catching my eye and I've gotten pretty good at ignoring them, otherwise, my TBR list would be HUGE.  But these weekly memes give them the chance to see if the book would be worth checking out.


This week the book beachcombersby Nancy Thayer caught my eye. It was on a display with a sign that was a picture of a beach with the world 'escape' on it. Nancy Thayer is like the queen of beach reads so the display had a number…

This week the book Price at War: The Bitter Battle Inside Britain's Royal Family in the Darkest Days of WWII by Deborah Cadbury caught my eye.

It Begins: Prologue
20 May 1910. The Streets below Windsor Castle were filled with crowds waiting for a sight of the gun carriage. Every window, roof top and ledge was commandeered to watch King Edward VII's coffin complete the final stage of its journey.

On Page 56: ...papers across the world with pictures showing Wallis resplendent, all Gloriana, her adoring ex-king in tow, and Hitler almost rubbing his hands in glee, his …

This year's summer reading theme is Build a Better World. For this challenge NYPL has come up with 3 categories and a few suggestions for each category.  They say, "If you read one book from each suggested category below in June, July, and August, you'll have knocked out three great new-to-you books before the fall."

First up is to try a book about immigrants or refugees.

I'm going with their suggestion of The Best We Could Do by Thi Bui

The author describes her experiences as a young Vietnamese immigrant, highlighting her family's move from their war-torn home to the United States in graphic novel format.


Next is to try a book about an unlikely friendship.

Again I went with a NYPL suggestion of Arrival by Ted Chiang.

The last thing I ever said to him was, "I'm falling asleep."

I used to think there was one set of footprints because my friends were carrying me through the worst days of my life. But now it means something else to me. When I saw one set of footprints, it was because they were following directly behind me, ready to catch me if I fe…

It's been a crazy few weeks. I closed on a house and I'm slowing moving into it. I'm moving from my childhood home so it's been a process to go through 30 some years of stuff and decide what can fit into my new home and what can be trashed or sold.  So reading has been slow, but I'm slowly picking up steam.
