It's Monday, Jan. 14 and I'm reading...

Sheila at Book Journey

Jen and Kellee at Teach Mentor Textt
Currently Reading:
  • Aristotle and Dante Discover the Secrets of the Universe by Benjamin Saenz...this has been on my bedside table for over a month and I finally opened it today. My goal, finish it by weeks end.
  • 52 Little Lessons from It's a Wonderful Life by Bob Welch...love the movie? Bob has some small lessons and inspirational thoughts culled from it.
I'm listening to:
  • The Girl Who Fell Beneath Fairyland and Led the Revels There by Catherynne Valente...the second book in this creative and unique series. I'm a fan.
What I've recently finished:
  • Dreamers of the Day by Mary Doria Russell...historical fiction set during the Roaring Twenties  in Cairo. I enjoyed listening to this audiobook very much.
  • Keeping the Castle by Patrice Kindl...a Regency-style romance/romp that is quite readable and upbeat..
  • Never Fall Down by Patricia McCormick...in the voice of a young Cambodian boy forced to work and fight for the Khmer Rouge. This book, though depressing, is a must read to understand the impact of wars, genocide, yet the indomitable human spirit.

What are you reading?
