What Are You Reading: April 11, 2011: 04/11/11

What Are You Reading?

As this week I was mostly writing for my projects, my list of finished books isn't as bloated with homework. All of the picture books in my list this week are ones I read for my project. For fun reading, usually while my computer was chewing on something, I read a lot of manga. Next time I go to the library I will try to stock up on more volumes of Fullmetal Alchemist but I have a feeling I'm running out of what the library has.

My current reads are a mixture of fun reading and text books. I won't finish The Lost Hero any time soon because my son has it hidden away under his pillow on his top bunk. He's reading it before bed each night. I won't get it back until he's finished. In the meantime I want to finish the Xxxholic volumes I have at home from the library. I also want to finish Conrad's Fate by Diana Wynne Jones as it's due at the library soon.

Finished Last Week:

  1. Big Red Lollipop by Rukhsana Khan (library book)
  2. Fullmetal Alchemist, Volume 9 by Hiromu Arakawa (library book)
  3. Fullmetal Alchemist, Volume 10 by Hiromu Arakawa (library book)
  4. Fullmetal Alchemist, Volume 11 by Hiromu Arakawa (library book)
  5. Hot X by Danica McKellar (review copy)

  9. Teeth, Tails, & Tentacles: An Animal Counting Book by Christopher Wormell (library book)
  10. We Are in a Book by Mo Willems (library book)
  11. XXXholic Volume 1 by CLAMP (personal collection)

I need to get back on the Rick Riordin books... hope you enjoy your week :)

Comment #2: Monday, April 11, 2011 at 19:58:30


I have to wait paitently while my son reads. I don't mind because he's reading above his grade level. It's good practice!

You'll have to get your son to read a bit extra... so you can get the book sooner. My sons of 12 and 13 are also reading quite a bit at the moment. I love it when they do!

Comment #4: Monday, April 11, 2011 at 20:01:10


He's reading fast enough. I have so many other things to read. I don't mind waiting!

Comment #5: Monday, April, 11, 2011 at 14:30:43


How did you like the Fullmetal Alchemist books? I've only watched the anime (first series).

Comment #6: Monday, April 11, 2011 at 20:02:43


I am totally addicted to Fullmetal Alchemist. If you get a chance you should watch the newer version of the anime too (Brotherhood). Let me warn you though that the manga and the first version of the anime diverge greatly right around the point where the library is destroyed.

Comment #7: Monday, April, 11, 2011 at 18:40:49


No e-books? Oh, so sad... :(

I got addicted to my eReader recently. Before that I was never home: library, book store (Indigo, I am Canadian)...

Now, since I got this iPad as a present. I could be easily found at home, to the great delight of my family, lol.

Love to read your blog,

Comment #8: Monday, April 11, 2011 at 20:02:43


I only read ebooks for review. I do so much reading of electronic journal articles for school that I need regular reading as a chance to get away from the screen. I don't own (nor do I plan to own one) an e-reader.

Thanks! I think I will.

I love the Diana Wynne Jones books I've read — I need to read more! Enjoy your week!

Comment #12: Monday, April 11, 2011 at 20:08:03


Conrad's Fate is very good so far.

From Cover to Cover actually wasn't too bad for me. And I'm sort of tickled that you're reading Intro to Cataloging. It looks like you did a lot of manga reading last week!

Comment #14: Monday, April 11, 2011 at 20:09:11


Cover to Cover is fine. The class its for is just turning out to be an almost overwhelming amount of work. The cataloging class is also work but fun. The manga doesn't take many brain cells to read.

Wow! I always know if I come to your site I'm going to find tons of great reading material!

Hope you have a fabulous reading week and thanks so much for stopping by earlier!

You're welcome. Which books piqued your interest?

Comment #17: Wednesday, April, 13, 2011 at 00:02:04


how cute that your son has one of your books hidden in his bed. You cannot be annoyed that he is reading.

Comment #18: Saturday, April 16, 2011 at 19:34:00


It's an effective hiding spot since I can't reach the top of the bunk bed.
