It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile!
Last week I was so excited about the 5 books I had going on, but if you remember, I mentioned that I had no idea how that had happened.
I said this last week:
I'm reading 5 books this week--all at the same time.
I have never read this many at one time before!
I don't even know how this has happened!
Different rooms, different times of the day--that kind of thing, I guess.
But I hope to finish them all this week.
Well, it so happens that--
I cannot do 5 books at one time!!!
2 yes, but 5 really confused my reading mojo.
All I did was pick up one read a few pages, put it down, pick up another one, read a few pages--you get the picture.
I can't concentrate enough on one to really start to enjoy it.
I'm going to pick one and just stick with it thru to the end!!
So...nothing finished this week.
But last night my son and his kids arrived for spring break, and I sat down with my grandkids and they each chose a book for me to read to them this week. It's my favorite thing to do!
My books are a bit dated, but timeless stories.
This week I will be reading AND finishing these two:
They would also like me to read "Little Women" to them. I love Little Women, and these two 6, almost 7 year olds, are advanced listeners, so I might give it a try. I'm not sure yet. Although this is a Penguin Junior Edition, so it's not the full 500 pages, which is a plus for reading aloud novels in a week!
And that's my reading for the week!
What are you reading?
