It’s Monday, What Are You Reading?

Right now I’m reading so many books! I have books in every room and I’ll pick one up, read it for awhile, then put it down and read another. Here is my current list:

Dewey: The Small-Town Library Cat Who Touched the World by Vicki Myron and Bret Witter. Because I love cats and libraries.

Marley & Me: Life and Love with the World’s Worst Dog by John Grogan. I love dogs, too.

An Innocent, A Broad by Ann Leary. An American gives birth to her son in England.

A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith. A classic coming-of-age novel.

Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood by Alexandra Fuller. Growing up in a dysfunctional family (is there any other kind?)

It’s Monday, What Are You Reading? is hosted by Book Journey.

  1. OK, any blog with Jane Austen's garden as the header, I must follow! What a lovely blog, and all of your books look like ones I would really enjoy, or ones that are already on my wish-list! So glad to have found you through the Monday meme! 🙂

  2. I'm a new follower and am pleased to say I have read a few of the books on your TBR list! 🙂

    I loved the book for Marley and Me, didn't like the movie though.

    Have a great week!

  3. I'm reading "Sheltering Sky" by Paul Bowles. It's really awesome, now that I'm getting it to it. Rough start thou

    Just finished "lamb" by Christopher Moore

  4. Oh, Marley and Me was SUCH a wonderful book! When I come across a book that's meant to be shared, I will read it aloud to my husband – there were times I had trouble reading to him because I was laughing so hard!

    I agree with Mari's comment about the movie though – I was SO disappointed by the adaptation – it totally failed to capture the spirit and charm that made the book such a runaway hit!

    I look forward to reading your commentary!
