What Are You Reading: February 27, 2012: 02/26/12
My daughter's Scholastic book order came in. That combined with a trip to the library with her, results in a long list of books read (and listened to). Eight of the books this week were ones she read to me. My favorite of the lot is Spoon by Amy Krouse Rosenthal.
I'm still reading Mark Tidd in the Backwoods. Along with it, I have a bunch of other books from my TBR shelf going: Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan which is set locally and is hilarious, the third of the Fablehaven books by Brandon Mull, and, 1Q84 by Haruki Murakami.
I finished two books on last week's trip to the mountains: Everything on a Waffle by Polly Horvath and Bellwether by Connie Willis. The delightful Horvath book was our audio book for the ride home. Bellwether I read when I couldn't sleep.
I still want to finish Robopocalypse. I also want to finish Goddess Interrupted by Aimée Carter and Outside In by Maria V. Snyder.
What about you?

Hope you have an awesome reading week!
Comment #2: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:37:15
Thank you. Same to you.
Comment #4: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:40:22
Most of them were, except for the two I didn't finish.
Comment #5: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 06:59:57
Looks like you had quite a good week! You're reading quite a few books that I have my eye on - like 1Q84 and Robopocalypse.
Comment #6: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:44:05
I'm almost done with Robocalypse; it's very good. 1Q84 will take me many more weeks.
Comment #7: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 08:50:39
I really enjoyed Maria Snyder's Inside Out and look forward to reading the sequel
Comment #8: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:46:58
Outside In is as intense as the original... but it's a very different story.
Comment #9: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 08:56:13
I like Marilynne Robinson's books...and The Postmistress was another memorable read.
I'm going to have to check out June 29, 1999. I'm very curious.
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Comment #10: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:48:58
June 29, 1999 is one of David Wiesner's wonderful picture books.
Comment #11: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 11:52:25
Wow, that's a lot of reading. I only finished two last week but am hoping this week is better.
Glad to have found your blog via the Monday Hop. My Monday Post .
Comment #12: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:50:15
It's five full length books and eight picture books, most of which I listened to as my daughter read.
Comment #13: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 12:10:40
I used to love when the book orders game in but more the ordering process was a bear. The kids always wanted more than we could afford. :)
Have an awesome week!!
Comment #14: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:52:21
That happens with mine too but they've gotten better at working with the budget I give them.
Comment #15: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 13:21:46
Great reading week for you!
Comment #16: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:55:32
Comment #17: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 13:24:02
I hope you're enjoying Outside In! I love tsubasa!! *-*
Comment #18: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 17:57:32
I am enjoying Outside In. I like Tsubasa but only in its xxxHolic context. I don't think I would have stuck with the series as long without that connection.
Comment #19: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 22:04:35
I was glad I listened to Robopocalypse. I think it would have been much more taxing to read in print. Hope you finish it soon!
Comment #20: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:26:20
I just finished Robopocalypse today. I agree about you re the strengths of the audio. It helped me keep the characters and locations apart.
Comment #21: Monday, February 27, 2012 at 23:24:12
Wow that is a lot of books completed in one week. I wish I could do that. Thanks for stopping by my blog!
Comment #22: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:28:12
I read for an hour before bed and I don't watch a lot of TV. Both help me finish multiple books in a week.
Comment #23: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 00:41:29
My boys (aged 6 and 7) just discovered graphic novels and have been devouring the ones at the library this week.
Wishing you a great reading week!
Comment #24: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:29:04
My son didn't discover them until third grade. Now he loves them.

I haven't heard of Spoon by Amy Krause Rosenthal, so I must seek it out. I adore her books.
Comment #26: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:30:32
There is a follow up book to Spoon published this year, Chopsticks. I haven't read it yet, but I plan to.
Comment #27: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 10:00:16
Yay for Outside In, and the Son of Neptune! I want to read Robocalypse as well.
Comment #28: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:31:00
I have about 80 pages left in Outside In and I just finished Robocalypse. Both are great books. Son of Neptune will take me a little longer as I've only just started.
Comment #29: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 19:07:18
Oh, I'm definitely interested to see what you think of IQ84.
Comment #30: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:33:30
I am enjoying 1Q84 but I'm only reading a few chapters a week. It's going to take me until the start of summer to finish it.
Comment #31: Tuesday, February 28, 2012 at 19:15:28
Your book lists always look so good! Enjoy your reading!
Comment #32: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:35:19
Thank you. So far they've been good reads this week.
Comment #33: Wednesday, February 29, 2012 at 17:38:17
Most of the books you're currently reading or listening I really want to read :) Happy reading!!!
Comment #34: Thursday, March 01, 2012 at 13:36:37
Hopefully you'll get a chance to soon. Happy reading.
Comment #35: Friday, March 02, 2012 at 00:20:47
Hi - I'm late but at least getting here!
Comment #36: Sunday, March 04, 2012 at 20:56:02
I loved both Robopacalypse and Outside In.
