What Are You Reading: March 21, 2011: 03/21/11

What Are You Reading?

Two new school projects are gearing up. My poor library card is going to be worked to the max in the next month. One project is award winning and notable books for children ages 5 to 8. The other is a subject pathfinder on livestock in Alameda County.

This week's finished reading comes down to five picture books I read either for school or with my children. I had one book I did not finish, Shattered Glass. I finished one review book, The Case of the Great Granny. For school I finished a textbook, The Organization of Information. I also read three books for fun: Calvin Coconut: The Zippy Fix, The Great Turkey Walk and Impossible.

My current reads are three on-going manga: Azimanga Daioh which is a massive omnibus, Ouran High School Host Club Volume 2 which I keep misplacing and Fullmetal Alchemist Volume 8, a series I am calling "my current obsession." I have six books going for fun which is far more than I would normally be reading at one time but some of them are coming due. Of those six the one I'm focusing on most is Brain Thief as it's a Link+ book and I need to get it back to the library ASAP. I also have two review books going, one on graphic novels and a golfing novel. Finally I have three remaining text books.

Lots of books...you are very busy!

Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.

Pussreboots

Thanks! At least next week is Spring Break so I won't have any new work on top of my long term projects.

gautami tripathy

You read some great books! Look forward to read your reviews! As usual, for the some weeks, I got none!



Comment #4: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:38:05

Pussreboots

I am looking forward to slowing down once the semester is over.

Full Metal Alchemist stole my attention;)
I want to read that manga but haven't gotten the chance yet



Comment #6: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:42:11

Pussreboots

It's a good series. I'm lucky that my library has most of the issues.



Comment #7: Monday, March, 21, 2011 at 13:16:43

Books4Learning

I like the way you have your lists set up. I guess I have to get a bit more organized on mine.



Comment #8: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:43:31

Pussreboots

I keep a running list during the week. GoodReads though helps me remember what I've read when and what I'm reading now.



Comment #9: Monday, March, 21, 2011 at 13:31:53

Alita

Wow, you have so many books on the go right now! Good luck with all your reading this week!



Comment #10: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:49:33

Pussreboots

Thank you. I probably won't finish them all this week.

Leeswammes (Judith)

I read my (almost) first manga last week. It wasn't quite what I hoped but it was a nice eperience.



Comment #12: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:50:34

Pussreboots

Manga comes in many different genres and age ranges. Keep trying and you'll find the type you like.

The1stdaughter (Danielle)

I've had Impossible by Nancy Werlin on my shelf for some time now...I really want to read it! Especially since she has another book coming out.

Also, can't wait to see what you come up with for award winning books for 5-8, that should be fantastic!

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



Comment #14: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:53:50

Pussreboots

There's a pretty strict rubric I have to follow for the award winners project. I don't plan on posting the whole list here but I might mention a book or two in the future.

Dollycas

Cozies are my faves and I loved Penny Warner's latest!!



Comment #16: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:57:50

Pussreboots

I am enjoying her latest as well!



Comment #17: Monday, March, 21, 2011 at 16:11:29

Edel

Hi! Thanks for the comment on my blog. :]

I love Azumanga Daioh! Kyohiko Azuma is one of my favourite mangakas. Full Metal Alchemist is a decent series as well. I hope you're enjoying them. ^^

Dolls by nake ape is about an empire filled with crime. There's a police unit and I think it mostly revolves around that. It's not yet published in English, so I'm currently reading it online.



Comment #18: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 14:58:01

Pussreboots

She's one of my favorites too. I'm also reading through Yotsuba & but I've misplaced volume 3! Fullmetal Alchemist is suprisingly addictive.

Cat

That's quite a list - you will be busy. Enjoy!



Comment #20: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 15:02:04

Pussreboots

I'm not expecting to finish them all this week.



Comment #21: Monday, March, 21, 2011 at 17:13:51

Helen Smith

Wow! I can't believe how many books you're reading and have got through in the last week.

Your blog is interesting - I found you via the 'What are you reading' meme.

Thanks for stopping by my blog.



Comment #22: Monday, March 21, 2011 at 15:04:11

Pussreboots

Most of the books were short that I finished last week.

Wowzers! You've been busy! Thanks for stopping by earlier.

School is keeping me busy. It's better than not being busy.

Helen Murdoch

I've heard good things about Impossible, hope you have a great week.



Comment #26: Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 12:56:35

Pussreboots

3/4 of Impossible is very good. Just skip the stuff before the prom.



Comment #27: Monday, March, 21, 2011 at 20:27:46

Kah Woei

I can understand your obsessions. Just hearing the title Fullmetal Alchemist makes me want to read it again.



Comment #28: Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 12:59:02

Pussreboots

Do it. You know you want to.



Comment #29: Monday, March, 21, 2011 at 20:49:39

I hope you have fun choosing books for the two projects! Have a good reading week!



Comment #30: Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 13:01:04

Pussreboots

I am. The pathfinder is coming along great and I'm finally making some headway with the award winning books for children.

Sounds like a big week indeed, I wish you luck with your project!

If it weren't for school, I wouldn't be reading this much either.

I really enjoyed Impossible. I hope you liked it too.



Comment #38: Wednesday, March 23, 2011 at 13:11:32

I liked everything after the prom. The set up needed some serious editing!



Comment #39: Tuesday, March, 22, 2011 at 05:39:52
