What Are You Reading: November 14, 2011: 11/14/11

What Are You Reading? I have a bunch of books going but it was a week of re-reading picture books with my kids and working through longer books on my own time. Nanowrimo and my term paper are taking a bite out of my reading time too.

I did manage to finish Flood and Fire by Emily Diamand.I am still slowly working through The Throne of Fire by Rick Riordan. I plan to finish listening to The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland in a Ship of Her Own Making by Catherynne M. Valente.

I still 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. But I haven't yet.

What about you? What are you reading?

Thanks. It feels like a quiet week of reading for me.

Book Snob Wannabe

Like me, I see that you read several books at the same time. However it is starting to get a little overwhelming. Do you have any advice or how do you manage to tackle reading several books at one time?

Pussreboots

I keep the different books in different places (for the most part). So I have a purse book, an audio in the car, a book in the bathroom, a book before bed, and so forth.

that's disappointing about tankborn, I did love it! i hope you have more time for reading this week, nanowrimo really does take up a lot of time though! even though i'm really far behind.

My homework is the thing taking up most of my free time. I'm glad to have the projects and papers coming to an end soon. Tankborn just wasn't my cup of tea but lots of people seem to like it.

I think I read Angels a while ago, sounds familiar. I know I've read a few Marian Keyes novels, and she's a pretty good writer.

It's been about five or six years since the last time I read one of her novels.

How to survive a killer seance, sound pretty cool! ;)

Pussreboots

It is. It's part of a fun series.

Mandy

wow how can you read all those books at once? I do good just reading one at a time.
thanks for stopping by my blog :)



Comment #14: Wednesday, November 16, 2011 at 22:50:50

Pussreboots

Reading more than one book is no different than following more than one TV series in a season.

I have some book club friends that love anything by Adriana Trigiani and I've heard good things about Bloody Jack as well. Enjoy!

I'm not sure what I think of Big Stone Gap yet. Bloody Jack, though, is turning out to be a good read.
