Comments for What Are You Reading: August 23, 2010
It's Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
I love being a part of this and I hope you do too! As part of this weekly meme I love to encourage you all to go and visit the others participating in this meme. I offer a weekly contest for those who visit 10 or more of the Monday Meme participants and leave a comment. You receive one entry for every 10 comments, just come back here and tell me how many in the comment area.
The textbooks are here and classes start in earnest on Wednesday.
Finished Last Week:
I decided to return Conspiracy of Kings unread. I just don't have time and it is due at the library soon. Next up are my text books, Avenue of the Dead by Evelyn Anthony and At Ease: Navy Men of World War II by Evan Rachner.

I recently bought The Lace Reader and I am curious to know what you think about it.
Also have Raiders' Ransom shipping to me. Hopefully the excitement of having it on the way carries through when it gets here and I actually read it.
I am currently working on Alas, Babylon and loving it. Think you would like it too!

The Lace Reader reminds me of The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie except that it's set in Massachusetts. It's not a straight up parlor mystery but it does share an unreliable narrator.
I loved Raider's Ransom. I made sure to re-read my favorite parts before taking it back to the library.

Great list - I do like the sound of Grave Sight (Harper Connelly, #1) by Charlaine Harris
I've been away, but I'm glad to be back now! :)

Welcome back. So far Grave Sight is an interesting read. I'm not sure where it's going.

You are reading an interesting variety of books. I enjoyed both Grave Sight and The Red Pyramid. I just began The God of the Hive. Happy reading!
Comment #8: Monday, August 23, 2010 at 21:54:39
I am enjoying both of them. I have higher priority books to read first unfortunately.

Great list of books. I was just talking to people about the old Nancy Drews. I didn't know that Carolyn Keene was actually a group of people!
Comment #10: Monday, August 23, 2010 at 21:56:00
Carolyn Keene, Frank Dixon and a couple other mystery writers for kids back then were actually groups of ghost writers.

I so want to reread Anne of Green Gables and Nancy Drew's Secret of the Old Clock.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

You're welcome. I am re-reading both those books.

You have a lot of books you are currently reading! I loved Anne of Green Gables and The Red Pyramid. How is Grave Sight? I will read it eventually.
I do not miss being in school. I remember that I had very little time to read for fun except when I took my class on YA services and had to read 23 YA books. Good luck with your classes!

Grave Sight is interesting. It's dark but fascinating. Twenty-three YA books for one class sounds like a ton of work.

I recall reading an Evelyn Anthony title many years ago and enjoying - hope this one's good too!
