What Are You Reading: Feburary 14, 2011: 02/14/11
Normally I catch up on my fun reading on the weekends. This weekend though, I didn't have time. I was too busy doing research for an analytical essay due in a week.
The books I did manage to finish are mostly picture books that I read first for my materials for children class and later re-read with my own children for fun. Their favorites this week were The Falling Raindrop by Neil Johnson (my daughter's favorite), The Secret Shortcut by Mark Teague (my son's favorite) and Bedtime for Mommy by Amy Krouse Rosenthal (my favorite). The only book of any sort of length that I finished was The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. I do own the other two (as my husband read them last year) and I will get to them as time permits.
My current reads are a mixture of text books and long fiction. After six weeks of reading Kraken I am only up to page 210. As I will be mostly writing my two papers and doing my assigned reading, I doubt I will finish much this week, except for picture books I either read for class or with my children.

I feel your pain with reading for school rather than reading for fun!
Here's my It's Monday! What are you Reading?
Comment #2: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:26:23
It's okay. I actually like my classes and I am learning lots.
Comment #3: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 07:42:57
Great list of books - even with the picture books you read am amazing amount of books!
Comment #4: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:27:02
Each picture book is only 32 pages long. It doesn't feel like an amazing amount.

Some great choices here . . . Kraken has been in my towering TBR pile for a while now, and I can always rely on a little Terry Pratchett to lighten the mood.
Comment #6: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:30:48
Kraken is good but dense. I'm taking my time with it so I don't miss anything.
Comment #7: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 08:57:50
Did you like The Hunger Games? Hmm..six weeks of reading Kraken, is it bad or are you just busy? Wondering if I want to start it. ;o)
Comment #8: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:33:58
I gave Hunger Games four stars but I have some problems with it. Six weeks for Kraken doesn't mean I don't like it. I tend to read long books very slowly. It's a rather complex book and I'm only going through ten pages a night so I don't miss anything.

Good luck with your reading this week! I hope you get some time for fun reading! Here's my Monday
Comment #10: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:36:01
Thanks. I'm sneaking in a few pages of The Beekeeper's Apprentice every so often. It's a re-read so I don't have to concentrate very hard on it.

I've heard good things about The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie, hope you enjoy it!
Comment #12: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:42:03
I'm on the third chapter of The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie and so far it's like a cozy mystery told from the point of view of Wedensday Addams. In other words, it's my kind of book!

Hi - stopped by last night but didn't see this posted yet.
Comment #14: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:44:11
Did I like The Hunger Games? Yes. Did I love it? No. Do I think it should be taught in schools alongside Lord of the Flies? Absolutely.
The author of Pink Brain, Blue Brain explains in the first chapter why she went with girls first.

Great! I hope you enjoy it. Happy reading.
Comment #17: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 15:01:34
Did you enjoy The Hunger Games - I haven't read any of them yet.
Comment #18: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:49:50
I liked The Hunger Games but it didn't blow me away. I am liking The Sweetnes at the Bottom of the Pie more than I did The Hunger Games.
Comment #19: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 15:34:08
Have a fab week! My It's Monday is here and don't forget to join in Read My Review, which this week has a Love/Romance theme for Valentine's Day.
Comment #20: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:52:53
Thanks. Same to you.
Comment #21: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 18:05:35
The Psychology of Management sounds interesting. I'm reading Taylor's Introduction to Cataloging and Classification to for my cataloging class. How's school going? I hope your week is off to a great start.
Comment #22: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:53:20
I also have Taylor's Introduction to Cataloguing and Classification to read for my cataloguing class. It's for later in the course.
Comment #23: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 20:48:30
Oh! Now I want to know what you thought about the Hunger Games! I guess I'll just have to see your review soon, I hope! :o)
Have a fabulous reading week!
Comment #24: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:55:04
I liked The Hunger Games but I didn't love it. I will eventually be reading the other two to finish out the series.
Comment #25: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 21:32:34
Great books! I am looking forward to reading Kraken!
Comment #26: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:56:13
Kraken is a very complex book. I'm savoring it.
Comment #27: Monday, February, 14, 2011 at 21:39:10
Wow, you have some really unique reads!
Comment #28: Monday, February 14, 2011 at 20:57:13
Well, a lot of them are assigned books.
