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

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.
Comment #8: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 22:03:02
I'm not sure which translation I have of Gilgamesh.
Comment #9: Monday, October, 25, 2010 at 20:24:17
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 had a great reading week My friend's daughter (9th grade) told me I HAD to read The Red Pyramid.
Comment #12: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 22:09:10
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!
Comment #14: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 22:11:11
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.
Comment #15: Monday, October, 25, 2010 at 21:49:06
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.
Comment #17: Monday, October, 25, 2010 at 22:01:22
How was The Red Pyramid? I've been wanting to read that one for a while so I hope it was good :)
Comment #18: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 22:15:14
It was loads of fun.
Comment #19: Monday, October, 25, 2010 at 22:49:45
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.
Comment #20: Tuesday, October 26, 2010 at 22:18:24
So far it's very good.
Comment #21: Tuesday, October, 26, 2010 at 01:28:20
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
I did but this week I'm mostly working on school work. I've only finished one book!

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.
Comment #24: Sunday, October 31, 2010 at 21:44:05
It was exactly that. My week has been very busy with homework and research. This week is shaping up to be just as busy.
