What Are You Reading: October 25, 2010: 10/24/10

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.

A third of the books I read were actually from my personal collection. I finally finished The Red Pyramid and I loved it. Although my list doesn't show much in the way of academic reading, the vast majority of my reading is actually from peer reviewed journals. I have an annotated bibliography due soon and am reading and note taking like crazy for it. This week I will write the bibliography.

Finished Last Week:

  1. The Adventures of Tittletom by Ellis Credle (library book)
  2. Collective Intelligence: Mankind's Emerging World in Cyberspace by Pierre Lvy (library book)
  3. Echoes from the Macabre: Selected Stories by Daphne du Maurier (library book)
  4. Internet Freedom: Where Is the Limit? by Ann Kramer (library book)
  5. Kat Kong by Dav Pilkey (personal collection)
  6. Knuffle Bunny Free: An Unexpected Diversion by Mo Willems (personal collection)
  7. The Red Pyramid (Kane Chronicles, #1) by Rick Riordan (personal collection)
  8. San Leandro, California by Cynthia Vrilakas Simons (library book)
  9. Tuey's Course by James Ross (review copy)

Currently Reading:

  1. Anne of Green Gables by L.M. Montgomery (ebook)
  2. The Egg and I by Betty MacDonald (personal collection)

I finally got the Red Pyramid done. I kept having to put it aside for assigned reading and due library books.

Thanks for stopping by my Monday. Wow, that quite a lot reading! I just finished Gilgamesh and highly recommend the translation by Herbert Mason.

Pussreboots

I'm not sure which translation I have of Gilgamesh.

I think Daphne DuMaurier is one of my favorite authors! I wish I had time to read her more often. Anne of Green Gables, The Zookeepers Wife — love 'em!

I was reading her short stories for a book club. It's been a while since I've read her but her stories always entertain.

You can add me to the list of people telling you that you have to read The Red Pyarmid.

I've been meaning to read The Zookeeper's Wife for ages - will be looking for your review!

Pussreboots

So far I am enjoying it but it will probably take me a while. I'm only reading it before bed when I have time.

Heidi V.

The Virtual Unrealities sounds interesting I'll have to try and find it at the library...



Comment #16: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 22:15:14

It is interesting. I got my copy via the library. Hopefully yours will have it too.

Wow, you get a lot of reading done - for work (school) and for pleasure.

What are your thoughts on The Zookeeper's Wife? My book group read it earlier this year and enjoyed it.

Have a good week.

So far it's very good.

I have yet to read anything by Riordan, though this may be bad for me to admit. LOL. I plan to, I just haven't found the time.

Looks like you had another busy week! Thank you so much for stopping by my site every week, I really appreciate it! Happy reading!



Comment #22: Tuesday, October, 26, 2010 at 22:20:12

Pussreboots

I did but this week I'm mostly working on school work. I've only finished one book!



Comment #23: Saturday, October, 30, 2010 at 00:58:54 MarthaE

Hi - a great list as always. Looks like a mix with children's books and some popular novels. I'll have to get time to check out your reviews. I hope your week is going well.

Pussreboots

It was exactly that. My week has been very busy with homework and research. This week is shaping up to be just as busy.
