What Are You Reading: Feburary 07, 2011: 02/07/11

What Are You Reading?

A third of my current reads are still text books. The rest are mostly books off my wishlist or to be read pile. From that list I will probably only finish The Hunger Games and Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 4 as both are short, relatively easy reads.

Among my finished reads, many are picture books. Those picture books were homework for the collection building for ages 5 to 8 that I'm taking. Specific picture books weren't assigned but I was supposed to read books that illustrated specific points in our lecture notes and text book reading.

The titles in quotes are short stories. I spent a couple hours on Saturday reading through my back issues of Fantasy and Science Fiction. I finally finished the July / August 2010 issue. Now I'm on the September / October issue.

Finished Last Week:

  1. Ambient Findability by Peter Morville (library book)
  2. Hard Hat Area by Susan L. Roth (library book)
  3. "Introduction to Joyous Cooking 200th Anniversary Edition" by Heather Lindsey (July / Aug 2010) (personal collection)

You are reading Hunger Games- I hope you enjoy it - I really did!

Pussreboots

The Hunger Games is okay. I'm enjoying it but so far it's not sucking me in.

Jan von Harz

Wow that is some list, I am very impressed. I am lucky if I get two books read in a week.



Comment #4: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:10:52

Pussreboots

Most of what I read though was short: short stories and picture books.



Comment #5: Monday, February, 7, 2011 at 08:33:46

Samantha

I love Alan Bradley's books! Flavia is one of the most unique and fun characters I've come across in a long time. Enjoy!



Comment #6: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:12:31

Pussreboots

I've only just started. Hopefully I'll like it.

Esme

That is some reading you accomplished this week.



Comment #8: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:13:01

Pussreboots

Lots of short fiction mostly. The total page count probably isn't very high.



Comment #9: Monday, February, 7, 2011 at 10:27:25

Kristin

I have The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie on my tbr list - looking forward to seeing your thoughts on it. My It's Monday post can be found here.

Pussreboots

I will get it reviewed sometime after I finish it. But I have a long back log of things I want to review!

Joy Weese Moll

Great list of books and stories--Happy Reading! Here's my Monday!



Comment #12: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:15:55

Thank you. Same to you!

The1stdaughter (Danielle)

Whoa! Look at all those books! Incredible! I've been really eager to try the Pinkalicious books because I think my daughter might really like them, but we'll see.

Have a fabulous reading week and thanks for stopping by earlier!

Pussreboots

Both of my children (son and daughter) like the Pinkalicious series. It's not as pretty pink princessy as you might think from the covers.

Crystal (I Totally Paused!)

What a lovely week, congratulations! Have a great one :)

Hope you're still enjoying the FMA manga ... :-)



Comment #18: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:16:00

Pussreboots

I am. I'm almost done with volume four and I have the next three after that waiting to go.

Sherri at Urban Girl Reader

You are one busy lady, even with picture books, manga, short stories. :-D

I'm hopping a bit late tonight, work just held me up and for some reason they frown on blogging during work hours. <grin> Anyway, looks like you will have another busy week (including those textbooks!)

keep up the great work.



Comment #20: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:26:20

Pussreboots

This week though I'm doing nothing but assigned reading, it seems. Sigh.



Comment #21: Tuesday, February, 8, 2011 at 01:26:10

leeswammes (Judith)

It's sometimes quite nice to (re)read all these picture books. Hope you're enjoying it.

Is it the first time you're reading The Hunger Games? I loved the series.



Comment #22: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:27:12

Pussreboots

Yes. This is my first time and probably my only time. It's fun but probably not something I will want to reread.



Comment #23: Tuesday, February, 8, 2011 at 02:45:10

Mardel

Wow, you are a reading wizard!

I get to read children's picture books since I work in a elementary school library. Some of them are pretty fun - which makes up for the ones I consider boring. :) Have you heard of the Stanley books - Stanley's Party and Stanley's Wild Ride? Last name of the author is Bailey and the books are very funny with a lesson hidden within.



Comment #24: Tuesday, February 8, 2011 at 23:28:24

Pussreboots

I'm taking a materials for ages 5 to 8 this semester, so I'm reading twice as many picture books as I would otherwise.



Comment #25: Wednesday, February, 9, 2011 at 14:27:21

Aleksandra

Wow, you read a lot! I've read some of these & some are on my tbr list! Happy reading!



Comment #26: Sunday, February 13, 2011 at 20:59:42

Pussreboots

My reading is inflated right now because I'm in school.
