What Are You Reading: May 28, 2012: 05/28/12

What Are You Reading?

I normally start writing this post on Saturday so I can post it late Sunday evening. This weekend though, I've been under the weather. It started with a sore throat on Friday night and was a full blown fever by yesterday. Now I'm congested. So since I spent my time in bed, I didn't get around to writing this post ahead of time.

My favorite read last week was Amulet 4: The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi. I am eagerly awaiting the fifth book in the series which comes out this fall.

I am still listening to The Improbable Adventures of Sherlock Holmes (audio) edited by John Joseph Adams. I am in the last six discs now. I hope to finish the book this week. If I don't, I will most certainly get it finished by the week after.

My goal this week is to finish Emily the Strange: Dark Times by Rob Roger.

What about you?

Finished:

  1. 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know: Collective Wisdom from the Experts by Kevlin Henney (library book)
  2. Amulet, Book 4: The Last Council by Kazu Kibuishi (personal collection)

  4. Funny How Things Change by Melissa Wyatt (library book)
  5. Mr. Toppit by Charles Elton (library book)

8 books for your currently reading! Wow! I can only read 1-2 books at the same time ;)

It's really no different than following a bunch of different TV series over the course of a week.

Everything sounds so good. Glad to hear you enjoyed Amulet so much. I haven't read that series.

Pussreboots

The Amulet series is worth a look.

You are reading and have read a nice variety of books. I hope you are feeling better now. I had something similar at Easter and am just now shaking the cough that went along with it. Have a great reading week.

I'm on the mend, thanks.

Oh, Amulet 4 looks really good! And I need to get around to reading Body and Soul! It looks really good! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!

Pussreboots

Both books are very good. I haven't gotten very far yet in Body and Soul yet because my husband grabbed it to read it. I need to get back to it.

I hope you feel better soon and enjoy the Valente book. I read her 'Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairyland' a while back. She has a wonderful imagination!

Her adult books are different, although they do share a similar turn of phrase here and there.

I hope you are feeling better now. I was going to go to work today but at the last minute decided to stay home so today was relaxing. As always you have had some good reading. I am off to read your review of Railsea as that title has interested me.
Have a good week.

I'm on the mend but not yet 100%.

I'm making progress. I'm almost halfway done.

Kim @ Kim Reads

You got through quite a lot of books last week (: I'm such a slow reader and only ever get through two or three. haha. I haven't heard of a lot of the ones you're currently reading but maybe I'll come across them sometime.

Thanks for stopping by!

I do most of my reading on the weekends and didn't do anything this past weekend because I was sick. I bet next week's list will be very short.

Shelleyrae @ Book'd Out

Sorry you aren't feeling well though its the perfect excuse for you to lie in bed and listen to that audio book

Thanks for stopping by Book'd Out earlier, have a great reading week!

I didn't even do that. I just slept. I did almost no reading this weekend.

Love Jane Yolen's books. Have you read The Devil's Arithmetic?

Thanks for stopping by my week in review.
