What Are You Reading: August 16, 2010: 08/15/10
It's Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment. You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
I am trying to get through as many of my library books as I can before my textbooks arrive.
Finished Last Week:
Next on my list of to read books are Gerry's Tales (for review) and a Conspiracy of Kings by Megan Whalen Turner.
If you have any questions about the books I finished or am currently reading, please leave a comment. So what are you reading this week?
Comment #1: Sunday, August, 15, 2010 at 21:44:46
So, is this version of Nancy Drew you're reading very different to the old one ?
Comment #2: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:36:14
Actually the version I read first was the "new" one. I'm reading the "old" one now but I've only just started reading it. I haven't read enough to notice many changes except for a different character name.
Comment #3: Sunday, August, 15, 2010 at 22:39:37
Wow, you read a lot last week! Very impressive.
I loved The Red Pyramid. I have quickly become a fan of Rick Riordan. The Secret of the Old Clock was a favorite of mine when I was a girl. I've also been wanting to read the Harper Connelly series. I like Sookie Stackhouse and I have a feeling I'd enjoy this series too. I hope you have a great week!
Comment #4: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:39:23
The Red Pyramid is fun. I've only read the Sookie Stackhouse short stories.
Comment #5: Sunday, August, 15, 2010 at 22:49:44
I'll be interested to see what you think of The Red Pyramid I reviewed it fairly recently.
When do you choose an ebook over a real one?
Comment #6: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:45:24
I am enjoying The Red Pyramid. It will probably be a 4 or 5 star book.
I pick ebooks either because it's the only version available or because I want to have text on my screen. In the case of Anne of Green Gables I'm reading an ebook version because I'm taking notes from it for this year's Nanowrimo. I'm planing on writing a novel inspired by the book as a writing exercise.
Comment #7: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 00:28:16
Wow you have an awesome list going here! The Lace Reader is one I would like to try too. Have a super week :D
Comment #8: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:48:02
I'm reading The Lace Reader for the #TuesBookTalk book club on Twitter.
Comment #9: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 04:22:17
You did so well! Have another great reading week ahead!
Comment #10: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:48:02
Thank you. I expect things will change drastically soon as I start having to focus on homework.
Comment #11: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 04:38:28
You had a terrific week and another one in the making. I will be interested to see what you think of the Red Pyramid. I was a bit disappointed with it myself. Have a great week.
Comment #12: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:56:43
I am enjoying The Red Pyramid. I don't think I will be disappointed.
Comment #13: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 09:03:48
Have you read Anne before or is this the first time?
Comment #14: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 09:58:09
Yes, I've read the entire series before.
Comment #15: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 09:59:24
Oh that reminds me that I really need to read The Red Pyramid before I go back to school - the clock is ticking!!! Just seven days of freedom left!
Comment #16: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:02:59
I have about that much time left too before school starts.
Comment #17: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 16:49:27
Wow! I'm impressed.
I love seeing Nancy Drew and Anne of Green Gables on your list. We read the 1st during the school year with our Mother/Daughter book group...the girls loved it! And my daughter just recently started a series called, "Mother Daughter Book Club" and the 2nd book in the series is about Anne. She can't wait to read the "real" book.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Comment #18: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:04:46
Sounds like you had fun.
Comment #19: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 19:21:33
Ahhh...you remind me yet again, I need to read Anne of Green Gables! I LOVED the series on TV when I was younger and I know I would love the books even more. Thank you!
Also, how are you liking Grave Sight? I love Charlaine Harris and that series is really good, just not my favorite by her.
Have a fabulous reading week and thanks for stopping by my site earlier!
Comment #20: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:07:29
I'm re-reading the book. I read the series when I was a teen.
I've only just started Grave Sight. It's not a high priority book on my currently reading pile.
Comment #21: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 23:11:05
That's quite a list you're managing to read through.
Comment #22: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:44:31
I won't get through my entire current reading list in a week. Some I read slowly and some I read quickly. So far this week I've only finished City Makers.
Comment #23: Monday, August, 16, 2010 at 23:21:38
The Grave Sight series is fantastic, I hope you enjoy it! :)
Comment #24: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:51:32
I've only just started the first book but I have the entire series on my TBR pile.
Comment #25: Tuesday, August, 17, 2010 at 00:11:47
The sheer number of books you get through is amazing! I am pushing it to make it through two or three!
Comment #26: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:55:01
My reading habbits will most certainly change when school starts.
Comment #27: Tuesday, August, 17, 2010 at 02:24:36
Ooh, I remember reading Anne of Green Gables plus all the others in that series as a child. I might still have them hidden away somewhere actually... might have to go for a trip down memory lane :)
Good luck getting through all those books before the text books arrive...
Comment #28: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 10:58:22
I read through the Anne series too as a child. I'm re-reading it now to get ideas for Nanowrimo.
Comment #29: Tuesday, August, 17, 2010 at 04:51:09
Wow! You have a lot of books on deck right now! I love Anne of Green Gables, and I enjoyed the Harper Connelly series. An Ice Cold Grave, the third Harper book, was my favorite within that series. Happy reading! :)
Comment #30: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 11:07:45
I read through the entire Anne series ages ago. I just felt like a re-read. I have the entire Harper Connelly series on hand to read.
Comment #31: Tuesday, August, 17, 2010 at 06:32:21
I am amazed how much you read. Can't wait to see what you think about Finding Marco.
Comment #32: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 11:09:36
I've only just started Finding Marco and I probably won't finish it until sometime next week.
Comment #33: Tuesday, August, 17, 2010 at 08:45:58
I love Anne of Green Gables and the other books in the series. The Lace Reader was interesting. I just got The Red Pyramid on audio. Enjoy your books!!
Comment #34: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 11:11:48
I'm re-reading Anne of Green Gables. The Lace Reader is for a book club.
Coment #35: Tuesday, August, 17, 2010 at 09:12:05
Can't wait to hear what you think of The Lace Reader. I remember The Secret of the Old Clock. It was one of the Nancy Drew books I owned myself (and still have), so it got read quite a few times when I was a kid. I adore Nancy.
Comment #36: Tuesday, August 17, 2010 at 11:13:19
The Lace Reader is for a book club and The Secret of the Old Clock is a re-read.
Comment #37: Wednesday, August, 18, 2010 at 20:50:33
Hi. Oh that is a lot of books to read and review. When your textbooks arrive it may be even harder to catch up on reviews. I want to read Grave Sight - I've read book 2 or 3 of that series. I'm interested to hear how you like The Lace Reader and Raider's Ransom. Have a great week.
Comment #38: Friday, August 20, 2010 at 11:27:05
The text books are here. I have six of them now to read in the next couple of months! Grave Site so far is very good. I'm only on the second or third chapter but I like it. The Lace Reader isn't exactly my cup of tea but I can appreciate the art of the story telling. Raider's Ransom I'm going to be sad when it's over. The book is fantastic.
