It's Monday! What are you reading this week? is a weekly event now hosted by One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books. It's helpful way to take a look at what you have read and what you want to read!
It's been two weeks since my last what are you reading post and in those two weeks I read...nothing. The week before last, I was struck with a horrible spring cold mixed with allergies that knocked me out of the running for a few days. I managed to only miss one day of work, but on the days I did go, I literally put in my eight hours and then came home and went to bed. The words on books just swam on the page and made my head hurt.
Then this past week, I had a little mini vacation. I worked Monday and Tuesday and then on Wednesday went to Holmes County where the Amish live with my mom and brother. We had a wonderful time! My brother is in seminary studying to be a Catholic priest and we don't see him nearly enough so it was so nice to spend some time together. Here's a really fun picture of him. He's the one on the motorcycle!
Thursday was Hubby and I's four year wedding anniversary. I can't believe it's been four years!! We had both taken the day off work and spent the day sitting outside, watching movies, and just hanging out with each other. There never seems to be enough time for that so it made for a great anniversary and a wonderful day.
I do have two books started and hope to finish them up this week along with a few others. It's supposed to be beautiful all week so it should mean plenty of time to sit outside, enjoy the sunshine and read some good books. Here's what is on the agenda:
- The Help - Kathryn Stockett: I'm a little over fifty pages into this book and really enjoying it. I can see now why it has been so well received.
- My Fair Lazy - Jen Lancaster: I love this author and this book is just as funny as her previous memoirs. I'm hoping to finish this one up in the next day or two.
- The Boy Who Loved Anne Frank - Ellen Feldman: This one has been sitting on my shelf for years now, and it sounds really good. I'm excited because it's different from the books I've been reading lately.
- Daughters of the Witching Hill - Mary Sharratt: I picked this one up on a whim last time I was at Borders because I loved the description and the summary sounds amazing. It almost reminds me of the tone of The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane.
- Water for Elephants - Sara Gruen: I've read this one twice already, but always find it to be an enjoyable read in the spring. I'm looking forward to reading it once again.
