What Are You Reading: November 15, 2010: 11/15/10

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.

Most of what I reviewed this week were actually from my personal collection. The rest were library books. All except two books 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!

  2. And a Bottle of Rum by Wayne Curtis (library)
  3. The End of the Alphabet by C.S. Richardson (personal colection)
  4. Influences: A Lexicon of Contemporary Graphic Design Practice by Anna Gerber (library)
  5. Library Blogging by Karen A. Coombs (library)
  6. A Thief of Time (Navajo Mysteries, #8) by Tony Hillerman (personal collection)

Currently Reading:

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

Library Blogging is a handy how-to book but not exactly on topic for my paper.

Were The Egg and I and Around the World with Auntie Mame made in to movies? I am a big fan of 30',40's and 50's and I know I have seen Auntie Mame and I think the Egg and I.

Anyway sounds like you had a great week. Hope this one is wonderful too.

The Egg and I was made into a film but I haven't seen it. There is also an Auntie Mame movie but it is based on the first book, Auntie Mame: An Irreverant Episode. Of the two Mame books, I much prefer Around the World with Auntie Mame. That said, the movie is excellent, and funnier than the book that inspired it.

Anne is a re-read. I'm noticing things I didn't in previous reads. Some of these details I like and some of them I don't. But it's an interesting experience.
