What Are You Reading: October 03, 2011: 10/03/11
It was a quiet week of reading for me. I have been concentrating on finishing my longer books. I have this growing collection of books stuffed between the slats of my futon and the wall. It's getting out of control. I need to finish the ones I have going!
My kids and I finished Ottoline and the Yellow Cat but haven't done much reading in the way of picture books. The picture books I have listed are ones I cataloged at my internship. I read them while I wait for the remote computer to run the reports so I can print out the spine labels.
My reading has been slow for a number of reasons. The first is, of course, school. I have a term paper I'm researching. I also have a lot of other smaller assignments that keep me busy.
At home, now, we also have a small kitten. She entered our life unexpectedly last Friday. It was either give her a home or trust her fate to an over crowded shelter. We gave her a home and named her Tortuga. She's gone from a small, malnourished, scared ball of fluff to a slightly larger, playful and snuggly ball of fluff.
I'll either start Schenectady by Don Rittner or The Farming of Bones by Edwidge Danticat.
Finished Last Week:

I wonder how the Mermaid's Mirror is; I really liked her Flash Burnout!
Comment #2: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:29:22
The Mermaid's Mirror is good. The setting is a fictional area near San Francisco. I'm trying to figure out what it's near.

Hope you are enjoying the Jane Austen on Audio.
I have just picked up an audio to listen to for the first time.
Comment #4: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:33:13
I'm enjoying it. It'll be my first completed Austen; I should finish it this week. I also have Pride and Prejudice on audio.

Have a great week and enjoy your kitty!!

Thank you. The kitten is keeping me busy.
Comment #7: Monday, October, 3, 2011 at 15:51:12
Real time wasters those little balls of fluff. I'm sure it's adorable and very happy to have a home. Hope you manage to fit some reading in as well!
Comment #8: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:39:55
It is adorable. It's also very young and in need of lots of attention and care. I haven't finished a single book since bringing her home.
Comment #9: Monday, October, 3, 2011 at 17:50:01
I love Judith Viorst's picture books! You have a nice selection of books this week.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Thank you. The Viorst book is part of the K-12 collectiong I'm cataloging.

Congrats on your new kitty! School can really slow down reading.I can't wait to read your thoughts on Wolves of Wiloughby Chase. It's a book that's been on my tbr list forever. Happy reading and have a good week.
Comment #12: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:46:25
The Wolves of Wiloughby Chase is good so far. I'm on page 60.

It's been the same for me too ... September was a slow reading month ... partially because I couldn't really enjoy most of the books I picked up and also because of work ...
Comment #14: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:48:02
I've been enjoying the books I'm reading. I'm just busy with school, the internship and the kitten.
Comment #15: Monday, October, 3, 2011 at 22:06:14
Mansfield Park is my favorite Austen novel. I just love Fanny Price. Are you enjoying it?
Thanks for stopping by my blog :)
Comment #16: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:51:20
I am but I'm sure I wouldn't have made it to the end in the traditional form. I'm able to concentrate better on the story by listening to it.
Comment #17: Monday, October, 3, 2011 at 23:39:38
Wow you have quite a few reads going. I'm looking forward to getting The Throne of Fire, I've been waiting to read that one. I've been looking into The Replacement as well.
Comment #18: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:54:33
The Throne of Fire is good but long and complicated.
Comment #19: Tuesday, October, 4, 2011 at 01:47:34
Have a great week. You've got a lot of books going on. Hope house-training the kitten is going well.
Comment #20: Monday, October 3, 2011 at 22:55:14
The house training is going just fine. Thanks.
Comment #21: Tuesday, October, 4, 2011 at 03:08:27
Thanks for visiting. Enjoy the week
Comment #22: Friday, October 7, 2011 at 22:58:30
You're welcome. I was so busy this week I'm not sure if I had time to enjoy it or not!
Comment #23: Tuesday, October, 4, 2011 at 11:12:10
Your story definitely makes me want a kitten of my own :) My grown cat would probably kill one, though.
Hope you have a great reading week!
Comment #24: Friday, October 7, 2011 at 23:01:11
My grown cat isn't pleased with the situation but she is slowly adjusting.
Comment #25: Tuesday, October, 4, 2011 at 12:53:50
I love that name - Tortuga! How cute and original!
Wow 9 books last week read! That's crazy! Go you!
Comment #26: Friday, October 7, 2011 at 23:08:25
All but two of them were 32 page long picture books.
Comment #27: Wednesday, October, 5, 2011 at 00:24:04
Ahh kittens are so cute! Enjoy your reading this week!
Comment #28: Friday, October 7, 2011 at 23:09:02
Kittens are also a lot of work.
