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.
The Grace of Silence by Michele Norris prompted terrific discussion in our book club meeting last week. I’ll write some notes about it this week.
I started and finished the young adult novel Ash by Malinda Lo for another book club. I’m not sure this worked for me. I’m hoping that our discussion helps me get more from it.
I participated in the online book club From Left to Write for the second time, sharing a childhood memory prompted by The Costume Trunk by Bob Fuller about dress-up and Little Women.
For Weekend Cooking, I posted Book Review: The Kitchen Daughter by Jael McHenry. The author tweeted about it this morning (some days I really adore the internet):@jaelmchenryJael McHenry
Love this review of The Kitchen Daughter from @joyweesemoll… and look at that tomato!http://bit.ly/oCJggG
There were a number of posts about The Kitchen Daughter for Weekend Cooking (Weekend Cooking: A Look at My Cookbook Shelves 2) so it was fun to be part of that. I read the book last week to participate in BookClubSandwich: The Kitchen Daughter. There are several links and comments about this book attached that post as well.
Edited to add: The wrap-up post for BookClubSandwich is posted at Sophisticated Dorkiness: Thoughts on ‘The Kitchen Daughter’ by Jael McHenry.
I’ve fallen behind on cpd23, the Continuing Professional Development program consisting of 23 Things, but I used Thing 5 (Reflective Practice) as an excuse to reflect on my CampNaNoWriMo experience in July and commit to writing another 50,000 words in August (eep!): cpd 23 Thing 5 – Reflective Practice.
It looks like I’ll finish Watching the English by Kate Fox in the next few days. This makes me sad since it’s been a lovely lunch companion for several weeks.
After all of that book club reading, I think it’s time for something just for fun: Indulgence in Death by J.D. Robb.
What are you reading this week?
