What Are You Reading: March 28, 2011: 03/28/11

What Are You Reading?

This week I am on Spring Break. So is my son. Although we are not in school, we both have projects to work on. He has a diorama to make and has chosen The Battle of the Labyrinth by Rick Riordan.

Meanwhile, I plan to create my list for my award winning children's book project and get as many of the books from that list read and annotated as possible. Most importantly, though, is the building of the list and the collecting of the books. The project is due at the end of April.

I also hope to work through some of the wishlist books I have at home. One of those books is The Widow's Season by Laura Brodie. I also have volumes two and three of Clamp's XXXholic from the library to read but first I have to finish volume one.

Looking at the books I finished last week, the breakdown is six picture books, read both for school and with my daughter, five for fun and one for review.

This week's current reads include three for fun, six for school and three for review.

Finished Last Week:

  1. Azumanga Daioh Omnibus by Kiyohiko Azuma (personal collection)
  2. The Bora-Bora Dress by Carole Lexa Schaefer (library book)
  3. Brain Thief by Alexander Jablokov (library book)
  4. Catch That Cat: A Picture Book of Rhymes and Puzzles by Monika Beisner (library book)
  5. Coco The Carrot by Steven Salerno (library book)
  6. The Dazzle of Day by Molly Gloss (library book)
  7. Farm by Elisha Cooper (library book)
  8. Fullmetal Alchemist, Volume 08 by Hiromu Arakawa (library book)
  9. Fly Free! by Roseanne Thong (library book)
  10. Graphic Women: Life Narrative and Contemporary Comics by Hillary L. Chute (review copy / ebook)
  11. In Dog Years I'd Be Dead: Garfield at 25 by Jim Davis (library book)
  12. Scaredy Squirrel at Night by Mélanie Watt (library book)
  13. Wombat Walkabout by Carol Diggory Shields (library book)

Currently Reading:

  1. From Cover to Cover by Kathleen T. Horning (personal collection)

Wow, 25 books in 2 weeks, I am impressed and envious. Enjoy your books and have a fabulous week. My Monday



Comment #2: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:31:15

Pussreboots

The vast majority of them though are picture books which are short.



Comment #3: Monday, March, 28, 2011 at 02:31:55

Samita

You're still going strong with the Fullmetal Alchemist, great! :D



Comment #4: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:35:23

Pussreboots

I'm about a third of the way through volume 9 now and I have volume 10 at home to read too.



Comment #5: Monday, March, 28, 2011 at 02:54:44

Aleetha

Awesome. I wish I could have a reading speed like yours. YAY. You also read Azumanga Daioh. I love that manga. Do you like it? What I am reading



Comment #6: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:36:25

Pussreboots

Yes, I love Azumanga Daioh both as manga and as anime. It was my second time reading the omnibus.

Just had spring break and am back to work today. Looks like you and your son will be busy while you are off. Enjoy all your read this week.



Comment #8: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:39:52

Pussreboots

Yes. He has his diorama to do and I have a children's book list to compile and read.



Comment #9: Monday, March, 28, 2011 at 07:54:42

Laurel-Rain Snow

What a nice selection of books! I'm curious about The Dazzle of Day.

Thanks for visiting my blog.



Comment #10: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:43:15

Pussreboots

I am behind on my reviews but I will get The Dazzle of Day reviewed as I work through my list. I can tell you that it's pretty good hard science fiction, although it got a bit too episodic for me near the end.

Kathy Martin

What a nice variety of reading! My students and I are big fans of the Scaredy Squirrel books. Have a good break!

Pussreboots

Scaredy Squirrel didn't hold my daughter's attention.

Enjoy the break - even if you do have projects ;) I like breaks!



Comment #14: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:47:32

I don't mind the projects. I'm just glad to have a break from the weekly assignments!

Have a great Spring break, too bad homework is involved! We have it next week.



Comment #16: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:48:39

I don't mind the long term projects.

Wow! You get though so many books! I am amazed! Here is my post.



Comment #18: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:50:34

Most of the books are short.

Hoping you have a relaxing break with lots of home reading.



Comment #20: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:52:02

Pussreboots

I got through a good chunk of The Widow's Season.

Vasilly

Your project sounds like a lot of fun! I hope you share your list with us once everything's finished. Have a great week off from school.



Comment #22: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:53:25

Pussreboots

I'm not sure I'm comfortable posting school work on my blog. I might review individual books from my list but probably not the list itself.



Comment #23: Monday, March, 28, 2011 at 16:25:31

Laura

You've got a busy week lined up. Enjoy!



Comment #24: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:54:02

Pussreboots

It's pretty calm compared to most weeks.

Wombat Walkabout sounds absolutely adorable. Good luck getting a lot of reading done on your spring break!



Comment #26: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:56:24

Pussreboots

It is a cute book. I thought it might be by an Australian author but she actually lives in Salinas, California.

Hope you enjoy Spring Break, Sarah....

Thank you.

IntrovertedJen

The Battle of the Labyrinth should lend itself to a fun diorama! Enjoy your books!



Comment #30: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 20:58:12

Pussreboots

I think so too. I'll take photos of it when it's complete.

Mardel

We just finished out spring break - I work in a school. It was hard coming back to work - lol.

You have a lot of books in all of your lists - good luck with your projects.



Comment #32: Monday, March 28, 2011 at 21:00:30

Pussreboots

The books on my list are mostly short. I'll be feeling the same way next week. Sigh.



Comment #33: Tuesday, March, 29, 2011 at 05:52:37

Abigail Ann

I don't think I know of any of those books- it's lovely to see a range of different books being read by bloggers



Comment #34: Friday, April 1, 2011 at 22:44:55

Pussreboots

Thanks. I have more going because of school than I otherwise would.

Enjoy spring break and good luck with your projects. Hope you also get to read from your wishlist. Happy reading :)



Comment #36: Friday, April 1, 2011 at 22:46:13

Pussreboots

I am slowly reading from my wishlist. I have one wishlist book going right now: Generation Loss by Elizabeth Hand.



Comment #37: Tuesday, March, 29, 2011 at 11:32:50

Crystal (I Totally Paused!)

Hopefully you get a good balance between pleasure and school reading this week :)



Comment #38: Friday, April 1, 2011 at 22:46:13

Pussreboots

I finished a wishlist book and started another one but mostly I read books for my project.

Notorious Spinks

You had a great week! Enjoy your week off!



Comment #40: Friday, April 1, 2011 at 22:52:23

Pussreboots

Thanks. I mostly worked on long term projects and helped my son with his homework.



Comment #41: Wednesday, March, 30, 2011 at 14:22:26

Chinoiseries

You seem to be really busy, but still, you manage to read so much :) I adore Azumanga Daioh, it's a manga (and anime!) to go back to frequently. Always good for a laugh. I haven't read xxxHolic or Ouran High School Host Club (though I have heard they are quite good).



Comment #42: Friday, April 1, 2011 at 22:53:42

Pussreboots

I've seen Azumgana Daioh, the anime, many times. This was my second read of the manga. For xxxHolic, I prefer the manga to the anime (though it is also good) and prefer the anime of Ouran High School Host Club to the manga (but again both are very good).
