What Are You Reading: November 01, 2010: 11/01/10

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.

  1. Babymouse #13: Cupcake Tycoon by Jennifer L. Holm (library book)

I've looked at Fever Crumb a couple of times at the library and should bring it home. Have a great reading week.

Fever Crumb was good but it could have been better.

What a great list of reads! The Mapmakers Wife sounds interesting. I am checking to see if you had linked your post here to the linky. I did not see it but maybe I missed it. :)

The Mapmaker's Wife was disorganized. It suffers from an excess of information that's not directly related to the biography of this woman or her trip.

This week I've started a bunch of great books but I've been working on homework and Nanowrimo and both have cut into my reading time.
