It's late, but it's still Monday (what are you reading?)





It's been a slow reading week here.  I finished the Orphan Train this morning ( i really, really liked this book ) and started the Monuments Men this afternoon.



Of course, I'm not very far yet, but 
I want to share a quote from the book....
(they are talking about  art)

It is, and always has been, the visible evidence of the activity of free minds
(page 21)

I like that.
The activity of free minds.

*****************************

The Monuments Men is a 'free' book for me as it's just for fun. 
I have to read  "This is Where I Leave You" and  "The Goldfinch" by the 26th and 27th, for book clubs. 
I will be hard pressed to get all 3 done by next week.

I'm linking up  with Book Journey for her weekly meme "It's Monday, What are you Reading?"

I've had that book for years and keep thinking I'll pick it up and then go see the movie but I haven't done either yet.

I am on the wait list for Goldfinch at the library. Looking forward to that one.
Trying to read Casual Vacancy but I don't like the characters. Persevering for now.

Just finished Lords of the White Castle by Elizabeth Chadwick...I love historical fiction. Right now, I am about half way through Pastrix. I wasn't sure I would like it but I am finding it very interesting....a fast read, too!
