It's Monday, What Are You Reading (20)

It's Monday, What Are You Reading is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.

Last week I finished The Burglar and the Blizzard: A Christmas Story by Alice Duer Miller for the Holiday Reading Challenge. For a book subtitled A Christmas Story, I found it contained not even a gram of Christmas spirit (read my review).

My latest Book Depository order arrived last week (see what I got!) and I dropped everything else to start Incarceron by Catherine Fisher. I have been wanting to read it for ages, and since I am a notorious leaving-new-books-on-the-shelf-and-never-reading-them-after-buying-them type of person, I decided to read it while I still had the urge to. I am enjoying it so far.

More Christmas books for the challenge. I will be starting The Christmas Mystery by Jostein Gaarder on 1 December and reading one chapter a day until Christmas Eve. I also got a couple of Christmas books in my TBD batch, so I will not run out of reading material for the challenge just yet.

What are you up to this week?

I just read a book that takes place over Christmas holiday called Dash and Lily's Book of Dare very cute. Hope you enjoy all your Christmas book. Have a great week.

Nice to see that you're reading Christmas books. I haven't accepted yet that it's going to be Christmas. I'm not a fan of it. :-)

I'm reading a nice book: Generation A by Douglas Coupland, which I am enjoying a lot. I've got too many books waiting on the shelves, it makes me a bit nervous.

Happy reading.

I'm glad that I am not the only one who buys books and then adds them to the TBR stack and forget about them. My Monday Report is here. Happy reading!

I thin we are kindred spirits! I too a notorious leaving-new-books-on-the-shelf-and-never-reading-them-after-buying-them type of person! LOL....

Well, I hope not never... but many wait for me a long time. Have a wonderful week of reading!

Cute blog! I am the kind of person who just buys books and puts them on my shelves unread as well. My 2011 goal is to actually read them :) Happy Monday!

How disappointing to read a book for the Christmas challenge and to find no Christmas in it. I your future reads will be more satisfying!
