What Are You Reading: September 06, 2010: 09/06/10
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 hope to finish up Wizard World and How to Crash a Killer Bash this week. Next up are: Fever Crumb by Philip Reeve, The Griffon and the Minor Canon by Frank Stockton, The Night at the Museum by Milan Trenc and Labyrinth by Kate Mosse. But first and foremost, I will be doing my assigned reading.

I normally finish around five or six books a week. My current reads reflects that pace. The only problem is that I have to take time for my homework and assigned reading. I also have lectures to listen to on my computer.

Wow, you have so many books on the go right now. I remember Nancy Drew...
Comment #4: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 19:08:45
Nancy Drew and Anne of Green Gables are both re-reads.
Comment #5: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 05:26:58
Wow. You've been busy! The only book I know out of the ones you listed was 'Anne of Green Gables'. It's my fav children's book. You'll have great fun with it.
Have a happy reading week. Here's my Monday.

Anne of Green Gables is a re-read for me. I read it the first time when I was ten and a second time when I was in college.
Comment #7: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 10:18:56
Wow; how do you keep that many books straight; I'm one of those read it straight through and go on to the next one kind of folks
Comment #8: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 19:11:19
I do it the same way that one keeps different television series separate.
Comment #9: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 12:14:45
Anne of Green Gables is on my mental TBR. I keep running across it in the stores. I'd better get it on the actual list. I'll keep an eye out for your review.

I'm reading Anne of Green Gables online. It's a scan of the first edition. You can read it and dowload it from here
Comment #11: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 13:33:31
Anne of Green Gables keeps popping up when I do my "resale shop" runs. I've been holding out for an edition that I'll want to keep. I'll keep an eye out for your review.

I got lucky and found a first edition of Emily of New Moon at one of my local used book stores. Maybe you will have similar luck.
Comment #13: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 16:55:57
I didn't know about The Night at the Museum books I'm going to have to find a copy...I hope you have a great reading week!
Comment #14: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 19:20:19
I didn't know either. My son asked which story came first Night at the Museum or the "Who Goes There" episode of Backyardigans. In looking for an answer I found the book.
Comment #15: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 20:20:34
I really want to get started on Mr. Darcy Vampyre... Happy reading!
Comment #16: Monday, September, 6, 2010 at 19:22:29
I really enjoyed Mr. Darcy Vampyre. I hope you do too.
Comment #17: Tuesday, September, 7, 2010 at 08:17:03
If You Give a Mouse a Cookie is a cute story. I haven't read the others but they are very popular at the library. I've heard that Monsoon Summer is really good. I hope you enjoy it.
Modern Information Retrieval sounds like a textbook for library and information science or information architecture/knowledge management. I took a class called Access to Information when I was working on my MLIS. We didn't have a textbook but we read studies and articles about how people searched for information.

I've read most of the If You Give a... series, just not the original. Both of my kids have read the book in school so it just wasn't ever one they picked out at the library to bring home.
You're correct about Modern Information Retrieval. I've gone back to school for an MLIS and I'm in my first semester. The book is for one of my three core courses.
Comment #19: Sunday, September, 12, 2010 at 02:40:24
Looks like you have a long list going. I love your variety. Hope its been a great week for you.
Comment #20: Monday, September 13, 2010 at 21:45:24
Thank you. The list comes down to a book in the purse, a book in the bathroom, a book next to my favorite chair, a book under the bed and so forth.
