It's Monday! What Are You Reading? (June 25): 06/25/18
The first full week of summer is done. My daughter spent her time at the local Girl Scout cabin, volunteering as PAinT. My son meanwhile is buried under AP and Honors homework for next year.

I love it that your youngest is learning Mandarin. Good for her!

My son was the first grade to go through the program but there was a lot of trial and error with that first group of kids. He switched to Spanish in middle school. My daughter though had a much better experience. The original school and now the middle school and high school are all on board and have put together an excellent program.

I'll have to check out Better Off Read! Love a cute cozy mystery :)
Comment #4: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:00:00
Better off Read was a little rough around the edges but good enough that I'll read more books in the series.

Is your daughter at Girl Scout day camp? My daughter will be doing 2 weeks of day camp (and then 4 days of overnight camp) this summer. She's a rising junior now, but she's looking forward to when she can be a PAinT!
Comment #6: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:01:00
She was last week. This week she's at a drama camp run by the local art gallery. She's finished her time as a PAinT, so next time there's a day camp, she can work as a P.A.

h a booky book, Better off Read looks like a fun cozy.
Comment #8: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:04:00
It is. I hope there are more in the series.
Comment #9: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 07:21:17
Good variety of books this past week.
Comment #10: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:05:00
Thanks. I'm trying to work through my TBR pile.
Comment #11: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 08:36:52
Boo stress! Go books! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #12: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:06:00
This week is better.
Comment #13: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 11:30:06
Lovely assortment of books. Come see my week here. Happy reading!
Comment #14: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:08:00
Thanks. Have a good week.
Comment #15: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 17:35:04
You have some great looking books on your list.
Comment #16: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 22:11:00
Thanks. I hope they turn out as good as they look.
Comment #17: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 19:48:21
Love the cozies and The Chooccolate Shop In Paris.
ENJOY your reading week, and thanks for coming by my blog earlier.
Comment #18: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 22:14:21
The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris is good but it has a weird start.
Comment #19: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 20:01:11
Great looking reads! I see that we both enjoyed Surprise Me.
Have a great week.
Comment #20: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 22:15:21
Yup. We both did.
Comment #21: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 20:23:42
Those cozies look good. Also Surprise Me looks good. I always enjoy Sophie Kinsella's books. Enjoy and have a great week!
Comment #22: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 22:17:21
Surprise Me is good, though a little slow in places. It's worth sticking with.
Comment #23: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 21:25:56
Maybe while they are occupied, you'll get even more time to read?! :)
Comment #24: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 22:19:56
Probably not. There are other things I need / want to do too.
Comment #25: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 21:59:37
I read the Wizard in Oz series as a child. I should read them again now. I wonder what I would think of them. And the Dr. Dolittle books (which I read just before or after the Wizard of Oz series). Did you enjoy the Miranda James audio?
Comment #26: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 22:20:56
The Miranda James audios are good but it takes me a while to get into them because the characters are mostly men but the narrator is a woman. She does a good job, I just have to get my brain in gear for her.
Comment #27: Monday, June 25, 2018 at 23:45:33
It is so impressive that you can read more than one book at a time. I simply can't do it--unless it's fiction and non-fiction.
I think we have Classified as Murder here somewhere. Catstronauts looks fun. Hope you have a great week. Thanks for visiting The Book Connection.
Comment #28: Monday, June, 25, 2018 at 22:22:56
There's the ebook on my phone / computer, the audiobook on my phone / computer, the book I'm reading for research, and the book I'm reading for fun. The Catstronaut books are a cute series.
Comment #29: Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at 05:11:17
Go summer! Well, besides hot temperatures! Looks like a pretty good week, lots of interesting books! Thanks for stopping by! Happy reading!
Comment #30: Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 16:04:00
This is our first summer in the new house so I don't know yet how well it handles the heat. Like our old place it doesn't have air conditioning. But it also doesn't have windows that face the setting sun. It seems to have better air flow. We'll see.
Comment #31: Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at 00:33:11
Hi, enjoy your books.
Comment #32: Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 16:08:00
Thanks. I have been so far.
Comment #33: Wednesday, June, 27, 2018 at 13:25:27
I couldn't find a Jenny Colgan book on the shelf of our library the other day. :( (well, that I hadn't read) I am going to have to put in some requests! :)
CatStronauts looks so good!!! I am also going to have to check out Sophie Kinsella. :)
Have a great week!
Comment #34: Saturday, June 30, 2018 at 16:10:00
I'm about halfway through The Loveliest Chocolate Shop in Paris. It has a weird start that was off putting. Now the book has finally settled into the story I was expecting and it's quite good.
