What Are You Reading: December 13, 2010: 12/13/10
My first semester as an MLIS student ended last week. The first couple of days I spent pretty much in a stupor not doing much of anything. Then I got back to freelance writing until Friday when my son had the day off and my daughter came down with a stomach bug which she promptly shared with the rest of us.
Last week's reading can be summed up as the remaining MLIS books, a couple fun reads and a small pile of picture books. This week I'm working on some wishlist books that are due at the library soon as well as a novel I've promised to a friend, namely, Bite Me by Christopher Moore. It is probably the most insane book I've read by him which is saying a lot since they're all a little off. It's set in San Francisco and is hilarious.
My reviews from last week include some catching up on my part. I have one review I had been meaning to post for an entire year! Some day I would love to be caught up on my reviews but for the foreseeable future I expect to see more of these year-old posts.
Finished Last Week:

Thanks for stopping by my Monday. I was sick over the weekend too. Must be something going 'round. You got quite a bit of reading done...I didn't do quite as well. The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey has an intriguing title...gonna have to go check that out.

The Mysterious Benedict Society and the Perilous Journey is the second book in the series. I recommend starting with The Mysterious Benedict Society.

There are more than 60 of the Magic Tree House books now so he has lots of books to read.

My daughter started The Mysterious Benedict Society; we've heard really good things about it. You are such a prolific reader!

I've been wanting to read the Richard Castle books. I like the show so I've been curious about the books. The Allen Zadoff book sounds really interesting too.
Good luck with your reading this week. I hope you are feeling better. Enjoy your break!

By themselves the books aren't the greatest mysteries but in conjunction with the TV series they are fun. You will see plot lines, characters and scenes inspired by the series.
