What I am currently reading and my progress:
1. Piper's Son by Melina Marcheta...set in Australia, a group of friends are coping with the death of another friend. 50% complete.
2. Emma by Jane Austen.. ..I started reading this book on my smart phone during jury duty. 15% complete.
3. Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley... Can't seem to get much traction on this book. I must bear down on it this week. 10% complete.
What I am listening to:
Mister Pip by Lloyd Jones---This was an Alex Award winner a few years back. Set on a small island in Papua New Guinea. The teacher, Mr.Watts, reads Great Expectations by Charles Dickens to his class and this book becomes important for a variety of reasons.
What I've recently finished:
The Final Four by Paul Volponi--- a fictionalized account of a semifinal game in the NCAA Basketball tournament with four of the players highlighted. Very good!
What I hope to read next:
-Under the Mesquite by Guadeloupe Garcia McCall
-Irises by Francisco X. Stork...I've checked it out from the library but haven't looked in it yet.
