What Are You Reading?

What Are You Reading: February 28, 2011: 02/27/11

This week I wasn't as swamped with academic research and writing. I am working on a project for my materials for children ages 5 to 8 class and that means lots of trips to the library to pick up appropriate books.

I did, however, finish a bunch of books I've been working on. The best book from last week was Diamond Ruby by Joseph Wallace.

My Currently Reading List is mostly text books. My fun reading: Azumanga Daioh, 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've swiped it out of my son's room. I'll probably start it after I finish The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie.

Finished Last Week:

  1. Alone on a Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo (personal collection)
  2. Busy Woman Seeks Wife by Annie Sanders (library book)
  3. Diamond Ruby by Joseph Wallace (review copy)
  4. Going Around The Sun: Some Planetary Fun by Marianne Berkes (library book)
  5. How You Got So Smart by David Milgrim (library book)
  6. June 29, 1999 by David Wiesner (library book)
  7. Oz: The Hundredth Anniversary Celebration by Peter Glassman (library book)
  8. The Planets by Gail Gibbons (library book)
  9. The Psychology of Management by Lillian Gilbreth (ebook)
  10. The Secret Shortcut by Mark Teague (library book)
  11. See You Soon Moon by Donna Conrad (library book)
  12. The Toynbee Convector by Ray Bradbury (personal collection)
  13. Twin Spica Volume 3 by Kou Yaginuma (library book)

Currently Reading:

  1. Almost Single by Advaita Kala (library book)
  2. Azumanga Daioh Omnibus by Kiyohiko Azuma (personal collection)
  3. Essentials of Children's Literature (7th Edition) by Carol Lynch-Brown (personal collection)

I'm in awe of everyone who manage to read so many great books! I hope you enjoy this weeks selection!

A big chunk of my reading is related to school.

It's busy, busy time! It's hard to read when you have so much else to do. But sometimes a short break with a book can be nice.

Pussreboots

That's what I've been doing in between all the text books and other assigned reading.

I've really been wanting to read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie. Have a great week.



Comment #6: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:05:14

Pussreboots

You should. It's a delightful mystery.

I loved Flavia, she was my favourite character last year, hope you enjoy the Alan Bradleys book.



Comment #8: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:06:42

I loved it and have put the other two books on my wishlist.

WOW that is a lot of reading.

A lot of it is for school.

If you managed to read that many books and that was a slow week, I really do not want to see how many you can read when you don't have research and other things standing in you way. Have a great week



Comment #12: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:10:01

Pussreboots

More than half of the books I read were picture books.

What a rounded collection of books this week! Hope you enjoy them!



Comment #14: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:12:12

The reading reflects what I am doing in school right now.

I need to read The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie as I've already read the 2nd book in the series and loved it (I'm never one to do things in the correct order!). I hope you're enjoying it.



Comment #16: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:14:14

Pussreboots

You too? I seem to have a knack for starting with book two first. I'm surprised I actually started with the first one this time.

I really want to read Kraken! I've heard so much about it! Have a great week!



Comment #18: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:17:11

Pussreboots

Kraken is a detail rich, densly plotted book. I've been savoring it since Christmas but I hope to finish it this month.

RAnn

You've had a busy week!



Comment #20: Tuesday, March 1, 2011 at 21:18:11

Yes. Most weeks are like that now.

I loved the Diary of Pelly D. I read that awhile ago and had forgotten about it. Great read! I love your lists!
