It’s Monday! What Are Your Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey. Be sure to check out her post today to see her selections and the list of links to all the other participating bloggers.
It’s been a couple of weeks since I participated in this. I was in Chicago last week which is why I wrote Book Review: The Michelin Guide Chicago Restaurants 2011 for Weekend Cooking.
With Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John I learned about growing up hearing-impaired, teenage rock bands, and Seattle (Book Review: Five Flavors of Dumb by Antony John). I started and finished Sequins, Secrets, and Silver Linings by Sophia Bennett. I’ll try to write a review of that this week before I leave town for BEA and BCC.
In case you missed it, I finally posted the review of Zingerman’s Guide to Good Eating that I’ve been promising for weeks: Book Review: Zingerman’s Guide to Good Eating by Ari Weinzweig. I didn’t get it linked up to the Weekend Cooking meme until mid-week, so I think a lot of the regular Weekend Cooking participants missed it.
I am currently reading another YA novel, this one is an ARC but I believe it’s out now: Where Things Come Back by John Corey Whaley.
On my iPad using the Kindle app, I started reading entertainer John Barrowman’s I Am What I Am. It’s as much fun as his first memoir (Book Review: Anything Goes by John Barrowman). It looks likely that this will be the first book I finally read to completion using an electronic reader. Although, I have to admit that I haven’t read it since I returned from my trip to Chicago. The reason that I’m pretty sure that I’ll finish this is that I’ll have the iPad on my trip to New York to read.
My current healthy lifestyle book is Winning After Losing by Stacey Halprin.
The other book I have downloaded to my iPad for the New York trip is Maisie Dobbs by Jacqueline Winspear. I am also bringing along one print book, the first review copy I’ve received from a publisher, The Very Thought of You by Rosie Alison. I’m looking forward to it since I seem to never tire of World War II British settings.
