It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?


BookJourney holds a weekly meme called It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

I am currently reading Rin Tin Tin: The Life And The Legend, by Susan Orlean.

I plan to review the book this week. Rin Tin Tin is not scheduled to be officially released until tomorrow, September 27, 2011, but I have seen several branches of Barnes & Noble in my area with the plenty of copies of the book on the shelves, already. They have them in the Pets section, but I’m sure that as soon as the book is officially released it will be available at the front of the store with all highly-touted new books, as Susan Orlean is a well known author, and this book is probably going to be a best seller.

Very sneaky, that Barnes & Noble.

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? and Bargain Book Bonanza!


If you check my Kindle I am currently reading Last Exit In New Jersey by C.E. Grundler. I am also constantly checking out The Productive Writer by Sage Cohen, and Ready, Aim, Specialize! by Kelly James-Enger.

If you look carefully at The Kindle photo above, you will see three books with “New” next to them! This brings me to:

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?)
