What Are You Reading: April 02, 2012: 04/01/12
My numbers are inflated again by reading with my daughter, and listening to her read. My favorite read last week was Stuck on Earth by David Klass.
I probably won't get too much reading done as I have academic journal articles to read. I'm coming down to the final weeks of school, so it is time to really start cranking on my papers. Research and writing cuts into my time for reading for fun.
My goal this week is to finish Son of Neptune by Rick Riordan as well as read three library books that are due next week.
What about you?

1Q84 was very interesting. I took me a few chapters to get into it, but I ended up enjoying it.
Hope you have a great week!

I'm reading a couple chapters a week to savor the experience.

Ah, I'm intrigued by a few of these, like Earth Mother and 13 Little Blue Envelopes.
Thanks for visiting my blog, and have a great week.

Earth Mother has lovely painted illustrations by Leo and Diane Dillon. I read it mostly for their artwork. 13 Little Blue Envelopes is a charming YA about a girl traveling through Europe based on her aunt's written instructions.

Busy busy week, huh? What do you think of 1Q84?

1Q84 is the book I'm savoring. I'm only reading a couple chapters a week to make it last.

Lots of great reading. I haven't been to our library in years. I send my daughter with a list a few times a year when I can squeeze them in between the review books.
Have a great week!

I have given up accepting a lot of review books in lieu of the library. I prefer being able to control what I read and when I read it.

Look at you, and all your library books! I'm glad you liked 13 Little Blue Envelopes. I thought it was a fun read, too, but I still need to read the sequel.

I had a bunch of library books come due all at once, so I had to focus on them. I own a copy of The Last Little Blue Envelope and I must make time to read it.

Sounds like a great week lined up! I've got some Riordan on hold at the library.
Comment #12: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 17:13:01
Nice! Which books?
Comment #13: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 20:20:46
The first two Percy Jacksons, I've been wanting to read them for awhile but they're never there, so I finally just put them on hold. It'll be my turn soon :)
Comment #14: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 21:03:02
How fun! The Sea of Monsters is my favorite of the series. I hope you enjoy them.
Comment #15: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 22:24:22
Good luck with your papers!
Comment #16: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 21:06:22
Thank you. I'm nearly done with this degree!
Comment #17: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 22:27:07
13 Little Blue Envelopes sounds so fun! I will have to check it out!
Comment #18: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 21:08:22
It's a fun read. I hope you like it too.
Comment #19: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 23:18:53
Great list of books. I've been wanting to start Christy Evans books, but I haven't had a chance yet. Have a great week!
Comment #20: Monday, April 02, 2012 at 21:08:22
Sink Trap was a decent start to a cozy series. I had a couple minor problems with it but it was still a pleasant way to relax on the weekend.

It seems as though my library holds become available at once! I'm trying to spread out the due dates so I don't return books unread. I'm amazed that you are reading 8 books at once! Usually I have an audiobook for my commute and a book I'm reading.
Comment #22: Sunday, April 08, 2012 at 21:57:30
I'm trying to keep my library hold check-outs to onely once a week. That said, I'm still sometimes overwhelmed by the amount that seem to come in at once!
