What Are You Reading: September 13, 2010: 09/13/10

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 was so excited when I saw The Secret of the Old Clock. I've been afraid to go back and read any Nancy Drew books. I can't believe that Nancy, Bess, and the gang have aged well.

I finally finished re-reading The Secret of the Old Clock. The original text is so much better than the 1959 edited version.

You read a nice variety of books last week. I enjoyed The Red Pyramid and keep meaning to read Anne of Green Gables. I actually have the book somewhere on my TBR stack. Have a great reading week!

I still want to finish The Red Pyramid but my fun reading is taking a serious hit to my academic reading. Anne of Green Gables I'm re-reading. Google Books has a PDF version of the first edition for a free download.

Thank you. It's turned out to be mostly one of reading for homework and research.
