I'm currently listening to Anne of Green Gables and really enjoying it. Hopefully you can get some fun reading in this week in the midst of text book reading

I go to bed every night thinking I'll have a few moments to read for fun but I always just end up turning off the light instead.

Sheila (Bookjourney)

wow you had an amazing week! Look at all those books. I want to lock myself in the house and have a week like that!



Comment #4: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 11:50:15

Pussreboots

Most of the books were picture books or ones I had nearly finished after weeks and weeks of slowly reading them.

Cat

Hope the research is going well. At least you can fit some lighter reading in as well.

Have a great week!



Comment #6: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 11:51:33

The research will be an ongoing thing until November. Then I'll be writing up what I've researched.

Jan@eatingyabooks

Wow you had a terrific reading week and another one planned. I read your review of Hate the Cat and am now going to look for it. Thanks.



Comment #8: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 11:56:51

Pussreboots

My only plan for reading right now is read for school as quickly and efficiently as I can.



Comment #9: Monday, September, 20, 2010 at 06:03:31

Karen and Gerard

We are reading "The Listener" by Terri Blackstock and "Flight To Heaven."

Enjoy your books.

Wow! And I thought I had a lot of books on the go! Lol. Have a great week! My It's Monday is here



Comment #12: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 12:02:37

Pussreboots

As you can see though most of those books are for research right now.



Comment #13: Monday, September, 20, 2010 at 09:18:30

Crystal F

Thanks for visiting my blog. At least you have some fun books mixed in with your research. I'll have to check out some of the picture books you have been reading - I'm always on the lookout for new books to read to my son.

Hopefully we'll both start making our way through our reviews. Have a wonderful week.



Comment #14: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 12:05:19

Pussreboots

I've posted a few more picture bok reviews this week and I have more than I'm reading. They are short enough to read for fun between the research.



Comment #15: Monday, September, 20, 2010 at 10:51:48

Bev

Wow, you've been busy....I feel like a bit of a slacker this week. But I did make it through Dante's The Divine Comedy I: Hell, so maybe not too much of a slacker. Here's my week



Comment #16: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 12:08:05

Pussreboots

You're reading Dante, for goodness sake. Definitely not slacking.

I always wanted to visit Prince Edward Island after reading Anne of Green Gables. I hope you love it.

Bannock Beans and Black Tea was fascinating. I'll get it reviewed as soon as I can.

I am undergoing a reading slump. You did well. Have another great reading week ahead!



Comment #20: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 12:13:32

Pussreboots

I want to read something longer for fun and actually finish it.

The1stdaughter

Oh! Alison Jay and Melanie Watt! Two of our family's favorites! I hope you and your daughter enjoyed them. :)

Have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop by There's A Book to take a look at what Ive got planned for the week! :)



Comment #22: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 12:13:32

Pussreboots

Sorry for the late reply. I am completely buried under research and other school work.

I've reserved The Red Pyramid at the library. I'm working my way through Percy Jackson and can't wait for the next series.



Comment #24: Thursday, September 23, 2010 at 12:18:19

Pussreboots

The Red Pyramid is very different from the Percy Jackson series but a lot of fun. I really want to finish it.



Comment #25: Monday, November 21, 2011 at 19:58:06

Dead Trees and Silver Screens

Sounds like you read some super cute kids book. Have a great week and enjoy your reading. Looking forward to seeing what you thought of The Red Pyramid.

Pussreboots

I really liked The Red Pyramid but The Throne of Fire dragged in places for me.
