What Are You Reading: February 21, 2011: 02/21/11

What Are You Reading?

What my Finished Last Week list doesn't show is the twenty or so academic articles I read for an essay due today. Nor does it show that I had Reference Desk observation paper to write as well.

My Currently Reading List is mostly text books. My fun reading: Azumanga Daioh, Alone on a Wide Sea, Kraken and The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie has mostly sat unread this week. It's not that I'm not enjoying them; I just have been too busy to read them.

A book I'd like to start soon is The Lost Hero by Rick Riordan. I'll have to swipe it out of my son's room.

Finished Last Week:

  1. The Beekeeper's Apprentice by Laurie R. King (library book)
  2. Once I Was a Cardboard Box — But Now I'm a Book About Polar Bears! by Anton Poitier
  3. Waking the Moon by Elizabeth Hand (library book)

Currently Reading:

  1. Alone on a Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo (personal collection)
  2. Azumanga Daioh Omnibus by Kiyohiko Azuma (personal collection)
  3. Diamond Ruby by Joseph Wallace (review copy)
  4. Essentials of Children's Literature (7th Edition) by Carol Lynch-Brown (personal collection)
  5. From Cover to Cover by Kathleen T. Horning (personal collection)
  6. Introduction to Cataloguing and Classification by Arlene G. Taylor (personal collection)
  7. Kraken by China Miéville (personal collection)
  8. Management Basics for Information Professionals by Edward G. Evans (personal collection)
  9. The Psychology of Management by Lillian Gilbreth (ebook)
  10. The Secret Lives of Princesses by Philippe Lechermeier (library book)
  11. The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley (personal collection)

I really enjoy the Sherlock Holmes-Mary Russell series. They are such meaty reads. Have a great reading week!



Comment #2: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:39:44

Pussreboots

I do too. Since I'm current with the series, I decided to indulge myself in a re-read.

Sheila (Bookjourney)

The Beekeeper's Apprentice sounds good! Enjoy your week!



Comment #4: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:41:51

Pussreboots

It is. It's also the start of a great series. The first book is really more like two novellas glued together with a connecting story.

Laurel-Rain Snow

Thanks for stopping by my blog...you have some interesting books on your stack. Enjoy!



Comment #6: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:41:51

Pussreboots

Thank you. A lot of them are text books but even they are pretty good reading.



Comment #7: Monday, February, 21, 2011 at 18:23:52

Esme

I hope you get some more reading this week.



Comment #8: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:44:22

Pussreboots

Thank you. I am getting more reading done. A lot of it is still assigned reading but some of it is for fun too.

Bluestocking

Wow! You've got a lot going on!! Thanks for visiting me today!

Pussreboots

I do because I'm back in school.

Aleetha

Gosh...You are reading all those book in one time. Great. They are new for me.



Comment #12: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:46:30

Pussreboots

I will get them all reviewed as I get them done and find the time to write the reviews. Happy reading.

Samantha

I love Alan Bradley's books! Enjoy! :)



Comment #14: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:48:01

Pussreboots

I am enjoying his book. I hope to read more of his work when I finish this one.



Comment #15: Monday, February, 21, 2011 at 20:58:59

Karen

I want to read the Percy Jackson series badly! They never stay on my shelf long enough!



Comment #16: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:48:01

Pussreboots

The Lost Hero takes place at Camp Half Blood but Percy is only a minor character. I hope sometime you can snag one of the books and get started!

Majanka

The Beekeeper's Apprentice sounds interesting. Did you enjoy it? You sure have a lot of books left to read :P I hope you have a bit more spare time left this week. Happy reading!

And thanks for stopping by my website. :)



Comment #18: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:51:33

Pussreboots

Yes; I enjoyed The Beekeeper's Apprentice. It was actually a re-read for me. Most of the books on my list are text books and I only read what I'm assigned each week out of them. They will probably be on my list well into spring.



Comment #19: Tuesday, February, 22, 2011 at 09:21:56

heather

I loved The Lost Hero. You should definitely swipe it.



Comment #20: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:53:29

Pussreboots

I will as soon as I get through some of my current reads.



Comment #21: Tuesday, February, 22, 2011 at 14:16:53

Julie

Wow! You're currently reading all those books! I'm impressed. I have trouble reading two or three at one time. I like the title: The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. I hope you enjoy your books! Happy reading :)



Comment #22: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:54:41

Pussreboots

I have to read most of these books at the same time; they're text books.



Comment #23: Tuesday, February, 22, 2011 at 19:10:11

Helen Murdoch

I have heard of Diamond Ruby so look forward to hearing what you think of it.



Comment #24: Tuesday, February 22, 2011 at 23:56:31

Pussreboots

Diamond Ruby so far is wonderful but very sad. I'm only reading a few pages a day right now but once things calm down I'll dedicate more time to finishing it.



Comment #25: Wednesday, February, 23, 2011 at 08:10:49

Aths

I really want to start the Laurie King series! I have the 12th book in the series at home, lol! I hope I get there soon!



Comment #26: Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 22:00:21

Pussreboots

There are currently only ten books. She's working on book eleven now. Happy reading.



Comment #27: Wednesday, February, 23, 2011 at 21:32:03

Crystal (I Totally Paused!)

Great list, I've heard good things about Kraken :)



Comment #28: Thursday, February 24, 2011 at 22:03:13

Pussreboots

Kraken is good but dense. Lots and lots of details, characters and plots.



Comment #29: Sunday, February, 27, 2011 at 01:04:27

MarthaE

Hi Puss Reboots.
I'm am visiting late..but got here.
The Laurie King books sound interesting. Are you really reading 11 books at once? Wow...I thought reading 5 at a time and keeping them sorted was good.



Comment #30: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 09:19:10

Pussreboots

Most of those books are textbooks. I have to read them. Take them out of the equation and it's a more normal amount.
