What Are You Reading: August 30, 2010: 08/30/10

What Are You Reading?

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 got a ton of reading done but this week I have to concentrate on my text books.

You did have a good week! I will have to look at your review of Uglies.

Have a good week!

Thank you. This week I am fully concentrated on my assigned reading. I'll be lukcy if I finish a single book beyond the picture books I read to my daughter.

Wow-these are some impressive lists! While I haven't read most of them, my favorite is definitely Anne of Green Gables because I adored it when I read it earlier this year. Hopefully Anne is just as enchanting in ebook form as she is in hard copy!

I'm reading a scanned copy of the original 1908 edition. It is just as delightful as the original and very nice to re-read.

I didn't know before this there were books written for Battlestar Galactica.

Both series (original and the recent incarnation) have books written around them.
