What Are You Reading: November 07, 2011: 11/07/11

What Are You Reading?

This week's reading reflects a number of things. First of all, I had a lot of books going that I was able to finish after weeks of reading them. There are a couple picture books I read while waiting for the slow network to respond to my cataloging requests.

I have a new selection of books going. The one I need to finish this week is Flood and Fire by Emily Diamand. It's due next Saturday. From my personal collection, I'd like to finish The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan. The audio I'm listening to, The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente is excellent.

I want to get to Blackout by Connie Willis, The Last Little Blue Envelope by Maureen Johnson and Of All the Stupid Things by Alexandra Diaz.

I started most of those books back in mid September. So it's not like I read all of them cover to cover in one week. They just happened to finish all in the same week.

I can't wait to read your thoughts on The Night Bookmobile. Happy reading!

The Night Bookmobile is a memorable book. I loved it right up until the end but I have a few qualms about how it ends. Partially that's because I am currently finishing up library school but I can't imagine going to the extremes that the main character does.

Going to try ready more than one book at a time this week to see if my brain cooperates, lol.

Have a great week!!

Good luck. It helps to have each book associated with a different spot. This is my purse book; this is my bedroom book, for example.

I've only read one of her books so far but it was lovely. I do plan to read more.

The Night Bookmobile is a book I can't wait to read! Have a good week!

I liked the book but the ending is a little sad. I think it struck me harder because I'm so close to finishing library school.

Linda

"The Girl Who Played With Fire" by Stieg Larssen, which I'm very close to abandoning as I find it stilted and don't like the characters.

I found the first book in the series to be extremely tedious. I haven't wanted to continue with the series.
