What Are You Reading: November 08, 2010: 11/08/10

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.

Half of the things I reviewed this week were actually from my personal collection. The other half were from the library and one was a review book. All except one book I read this week were from the library. The books were a combination of research and wishlist reading. The wishlist reads were fun and a nice distraction from all the homework I have!

HOLY SMOKES! OK you are the gobbler of reads... I so could not do this in a week! WOW!

Comment #4: Monday, November 15, 2010 at 18:39:29


A lot of my reading is motivated by deadlines. Next month I'll be on vacation and I doubt I'll read even half as much as I am this month.

I read fewer books this week. Been crunched with others things.

Comment #11: Tuesday, November, 9, 2010 at 09:41:43


I have Anne of Green Gables on my Birth Year reading list that I am compiling.

Read it many years ago and want to revisit.


Comment #12: Monday, November 15, 2010 at 18:45:49


How does the Birth Year reading list work?

Comment #13: Wednesday, November, 10, 2010 at 03:09:56


Hi Pussreboots. Another long list for you. Lots of research and some interesting goodies there too. I like Hillerman now and then. Have a good week.

Comment #14: Monday, November 15, 2010 at 18:45:49


It's been ages since I've read any Hillerman. It was nice to get back into one of his books.

Comment #15: Tuesday, November, 16, 2010 at 10:13:49


I am making my own rules up as it is a personal challenge, not one attached to a blog :)

I am finding it quite difficult to make the list up for 1969. I am choosing books that were on book lists as published 1969 and I am going to choose a few by authors who were born in 1969.

Sounds like a fascinating personal challenge. I might have to give it a try too. Thanks for the idea!
