It's Monday, What Are You Reading?
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.
I am writing this at 2:45 in the morning while watching online streaming of the last match in the Continental Cup of Curling in Canada (8 hour time difference). Yes, I am a nerd.
Now that Christmas is well and truly over and I am back to working every day, I don't have as much reading time anymore. Still, I have finished 4 books already in 2011, which is 10 % of my goal of 40, so I am pretty happy with that.
READ LAST WEEK
As you may have gathered from some of my previous posts, I have yet to read book 6 anf 7 in the Harry Potter series. I decided that 2011 will be the year I finish the series, but instead of going straight for number 6, I wanted to start from the beginning and read them all this year. So last week I read Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone by J.K. Rowling and enjoyed it just as much the second time around (check out my review).
As I don't like reading series back to back, I wanted something completely different before moving on to the next HP. I picked up Burglars Can't Be Choosers by Lawrence Block, the first in the series about Bernie Rhodenbarr, ordinary guy by day, burglar by night.
Probably either Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, or a another YA fantasy like The Thief by Megan Whalen Turner or Sapphique by Catherine Fisher.
What are you reading this week?
