What Are You Reading: September 05, 2011: 09/04/11
I'm posting this from on the road. We're visiting family for the Labor Day weekend. I'm racing to post before we lose power. There's a lightning storm going on.
With school in full session, my reading has slowed. Even the children have been too busy or tried for stories every night.
I gave up on a review book, Debris by Jo Anderton. I couldn't get through enough of the book to even consider reviewing it. I just couldn't get into the weird combination of primitive society / high tech. If they have the concept of pions, they should have the concept of a month and not call it "moons."
I finished listening to I am not Joey Pigza. It's actually the last in the series of four books. I haven't read or listened to any of the others. The book, though, stands alone just fine. Tuesday, if I have a chance, I'll stop by the library and pick up a new audio book. I have no idea what I'll pick.
I want to finish The Case of the Bizarre Bouquets by Nancy Springer. I want to start The Replacement by Brenna Yovanoff and Dandelion Fire by N.D. Wilson.
Gave Up On:
Finished Last Week:

Dreaming In Hindi sounds pretty interesting!
Comment #2: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 22:40:00
Dreaming in Hindi had some great parts and some parts that dragged for me. My favorite parts were the ones that focused on language learning over the ones that were about her specific experiences in India.

That's a lot or reading and reviewing. Interesting to see what's been done with the Little Black Sambo story and the illustrations. I've always enjoyed Julius Lester on any subject.
Get home safe and have a good reading week.

Chocolate Touch was a birthday present from my son. I am enjoying it very much. I plan to finish it tonight.

Probably not. The next few weeks will be very busy for me. But this is my last semester of grad school where I will be taking this heavy of a load.
Comment #11: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 08:50:17

So far they are good.

The Chocolate Touch sounds yummy!!
Have a great week!!!
Comment #14: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 22:47:58
The Chocolate Touch was yummy to a point but it's mostly a cautionary tale.
Comment #15: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 11:19:13
I've had similar experiences with books like Debris. Sometimes the terminology or slang is a real turn-off.
Comment #16: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 22:50:11
The scientific terminology wasn't the turn off. It was the mixture of the terminology with primitive words, "moons" instead of "months" and the like.
Comment #17: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 12:10:17
well you did make the post while you had power! hoping the storm has moved on.. enjoy your great list of reads. anything with chocolate should be delish!
Comment #18: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 22:51:21
That I did. I was offline most of today because I was in my car driving home.
Comment #19: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 13:33:55

I did have a lovely weekend with my family but it's good to be home.
Comment #21: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 13:37:07
Aside from having to abandon the one, looks like you had a good week this week.
Comment #22: Monday, September 5, 2011 at 22:53:33

I read short books and books with low word count.
