What Are You Reading: July 25, 2011: 07/25/11
I did manage to finish 100 Cupboards by N.D. Wilson but I'm only halfway through The Book Thief by Markus Zusak. Maybe this week I'll finish Zusak's book. It's good but I can only read it in short bursts.
I've been busy with school work so I haven't gotten any review books read. I'm still on the first chapter of The Goddess Test.
The silliest book I've been reading this week is Bagelmania by Mountain Lion Books. It's a bagel compendium. It's a little too pro Lender's Bagels for my tastes but other than that it's fascinating. I first heard about it on the radio (NPR, I think) four or five years ago. I've been searching everywhere for it. I found a copy via Better World Books.
This week I plan to finish Bagelmania and Rampant. I hope to also get started in earnest with The Goddess Test.
Finished Last Week:

Wow you are a lot further with xxxHolic than I am now. I own them till 7, but I can't afford to buy more atm and our library doesn't have any manga.
Comment #2: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:04:50
My library only has the first three. The rest I have gotten through interlibrary loans. Your library might have a similar program; ask your librarian.
Comment #3: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 07:25:02
I enjoyed 100 Cupboards when I read it last year. Do you plan to go on? I think there are two more books in the series.
Comment #4: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:05:12
I have the second book checked out.
Comment #5: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 08:32:19
I read your review on Anne of Green Gables. Nice to know you like it. I haven't read it yet but my friend told me it was boring. Two different opinion is always a fun thing.
Comment #6: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:06:23
There are some slow bits but I wouldn't call it boring.
Comment #7: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 09:14:04
The Postmistress is one book which I am trying so hard to get!
Comment #8: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:07:31
After I finish Rampant I will get back to the The Postmistress.
Comment #9: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 09:29:09
I did like The Goddess Test. I hope you get a chance to read it. Bagelmania sounds interesting too. But I don't think I'd remember to look for a book for that long. Happy reading!
Comment #10: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:08:32
I use GoodReads to track my wishlist. I know exactly when I've added a book and how many books I'm looking for.
Comment #11: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 10:27:34
I love how you post a roundup of what you're reading, what you read, and what you reviewed for the previous week. What a great idea!
I read The Goddess Test, and while I found it fairly compulsively readable, I also found it extremely problematic. I'd be interested to hear your thoughts.
Comment #12: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:10:02
I will get The Goddess Test done this week (fingers crossed).
Comment #13: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 11:54:19
I've been wanting to read The Postmistress for awhile, I hope you enjoy it!
Comment #14: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 12:12:15
Thanks. I've sort of set it aside while I concentrate on Rampant.
Comment #15: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 16:47:08
I am amazed at how much you read. I could not finish The Book Thief. I would love to read Anne of Green Gables again.
Comment #16: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:21:04
I'm 2/3 of the way through The Book Thief and I'm ready for it to be over.
Comment #17: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 17:31:53
I love love love The Book Thief! Have a great week of reading :)
Comment #18: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:23:13
Thank you. Same to you.
Comment #19: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 17:32:01
That's a lot of books! I'll have to check them out and see which ones I'd like to read.
Comment #20: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:25:13
It's less than what I was reading at the height of spring semester.
Comment #21: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 17:53:23
I adored The Book Thief it was dark with an incredible sense of hope! Thanks for visiting.
Comment #22: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:30:15
You're welcome. Happy reading.
Comment #23: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 17:55:28
Wow, you had a great reading week. Here's to many more books to read. :)

Comment #25: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 17:56:50
Hi - Are you on summer break? I don't see any school books. I hope you enjoy this week's reading more than the linked reviews. I checked several and it sounded like you weren't enthralled with most.
Comment #26: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:33:15
I'm taking summer school. I haven't included my text book or the academic journals I'm reading in my list.
Comment #27: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 18:05:50
Wowzers! You are reading a lot of books right now!
Comment #28: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:34:20
Take out the picture books and it's only four middle grade / tween books.
Comment #29: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 18:07:10
Interesting review on Labyrinth as I have that on my bookshelf waiting to be read. I love Anne of Green Gables.
Comment #30: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:36:20
I hope you like Labyrinth.
Comment #31: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 18:09:00
I couldn't get through the Book Thief, but everyone else has loved it so I feel like I should give it another try.
Comment #32: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:37:20
I'm 2/3 of the way through The Book Thief and I'm ready for it to end.
Comment #33: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 20:29:33
Kah Woei @ The Books of My Life
I've never read Anne of Green Gables myself though I enjoyed the tv series and some of the later books in the series that I read. I really want to get to it someday :-)
Glad you enjoyed your re-read ...
Comment #34: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:41:02
I watched the series as a kid.
Comment #35: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 20:34:21
You have some intriguing titles on your list. Yes, Bagelmania does have me curious!
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #36: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:43:03
Bagelmania is an interesting little book. I will get it reviewed as soon as I can.
Comment #37: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 21:00:25
Love Anne of Green Gables - I'm gonna check out your review!
Looks like you have a great week ahead of reading! Enjoy The Book Thief, it's one of my favorites!
Thanks for stopping by!
Comment #38: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:45:24
Thank you. Happy reading.
Comment #39: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 21:24:40
I just started listening to the audio of The Postmistress. This might work better reading the book instead of listening, but we'll see. Enjoy your books!
Comment #40: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:46:12
The couple chapters I've read so far were pretty confusing. That's part of why I've set it aside for other books.
Comment #41: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 21:43:30
I love Anne of Green Gables. Thanks for visiting today!
Comment #42: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:47:14
You're welcome. It was interesting to re-read it after so many years.
Comment #43: Monday, July, 25, 2011 at 22:02:21
So many books I love. The Book Thief is amazing, but I can understand if you need to take it in short bursts. It's really intense. I loved Rampant as well. Enjoy your week!
Comment #44: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:49:20
The short, chunky sections to the book are starting to weigh me down. I'm ready for the book to end.
Comment #45: Tuesday, July, 26, 2011 at 01:05:54
I have heard good things about The Goddess Test so I am sure you will like. Do you like The Book Thief so far? I read part of it and really liked the first part but the middle kind of dragged for me.
Comment #46: Monday, July 25, 2011 at 22:51:10
I'm ready for The Book Thief to end.
Comment #47: Tuesday, July, 26, 2011 at 05:13:04
Most reviewers I've read have been completely bowled over by The Book Thief, but I felt more like you did. It was well-written and I'm glad I read it, but I didn't absolutely love it and I'll probably never read it again.
Comment #48: Friday, July 29, 2011 at 15:04:51
Exactly. I'm done with it. I can discuss it now with friends who have read it, but I don't want to re-read it.
Comment #49: Tuesday, July, 26, 2011 at 07:06:46
Wow, lots and lots of books. The Postmistress is one I hope to get to soon. I've had it on my tbr list for awhile. Happy reading!
Comment #50: Friday, July 29, 2011 at 15:06:10
The Postmistress is well written but not quite what I expected.
Comment #51: Tuesday, July, 26, 2011 at 10:54:53
Out of curiousity why are you finishing The Book Thief?
Comment #52: Friday, July 29, 2011 at 15:07:05
I finished it because it just wasn't that hard to read and I was close to done.
Comment #53: Friday, July, 29, 2011 at 09:09:12
Wow! You read a lot this past week!
Comment #54: Friday, July 29, 2011 at 15:08:30
It was a slow week compared to what I was reading during spring semester.
Comment #55: Saturday, July, 30, 2011 at 07:09:18
Wow! You read really fast!! :D I don't know all your books but I hope you enjoy them all :D Thank you so much for stopping by my blog :D I'm really sorry for the delay I was moving, packing and cleaning those last fours days.
Comment #56: Saturday, July 30, 2011 at 22:17:10
Moving is tough work. I hope you're settling in now.
