What Are You Reading?What Are You Reading: January 24, 2011: 01/23/11

I finished my Cybils reading. This week beings my Spring Semester so soon I will be back to reading text books and articles and books for research.

My finished list looks large but I had a bunch of books I was slowly reading all finish at the same time. Seven of the books were very short, being either graphic novels or picture books.

You'll see that most of my current reads are from my own book shelf. I have finished most of my library books but will be picking up some new ones (text books on hold while I wait for the copies I purchased to arrive). I don't want to get carried away with library checkouts when I know my semester will be crazy and busy.

Last week's reviews are heavily slanted towards non-fiction. It's not something I planned but that's how the reviews ended up lining up for posting. Many of them are the result of last semester's reading. Yes, I reviewed my text books.

Finished Last Week:

  1. The Clock Without a Face by Gus Twintig (library book)
  2. Dark's Tale by Deborah Grabien (library book)
  3. The Doorbells of Florence by Andrew Losowsky (personal collection)
  4. Empress of the World by Sara Ryan (personal collection)
  5. Frost Moon by Anthony Francis (review copy)
  6. Hands of My Father by Myron Uhlberg (library book)
  7. Happy Hour of the Damned by Mark Henry (library book)
  8. Mercury by Hope Larson (review copy)
  9. Night Owls Volume 1 by Peter and Bobby Timony (review copy)
  10. Picture a Letter by Brad Sneed (library book)
  11. "The Revel" by John Langan (FSF July / Aug 2010) (personal collection)
  12. Snow by Cynthia Rylant (library book)
  13. True Things by Jimmy Gownley (library book)
  14. The Unsinkable Walter Bean Aaron Renier (review copy)

Currently Reading:

  1. Alone on a Wide Sea by Michael Morpurgo (personal collection)
  2. Azumanga Daioh Omnibus by Kiyohiko Azuma (personal collection)
  3. The Canary Trainer by Nicholas Meyer (library book)

I'm definitely curious to know what you thought of Happy Hour of the Damned.

I didn't like it. It had an interest premise but the execution just wasn't what I was hoping for.

I also read Hands of my Father, which I thought was pretty interesting.

It was an interseting and quick read.

Mari (Bookworm with a View )

wow, I'm impressed! You read more books in one week than I read in a month, sometimes two!

Good luck reading and with class.

For class I will mostly be reading assigned work and articles and books for research. So my reading will probably drop off in terms of how much I finish a week.

Great list, as always!

Have a great week!

Hmm ... you seem to be reading a lot more manga recently or is it that I've just never noticed before :-)

I read a bunch when back in 2007 but I got away from reading it when I was busy with reading review books.

Wow...you read a lot of books last week! I go in spurts with how much I read in a week - sometimes I get a bunch done and sometimes I only get one or two.

Thanks for stopping by my blog!

I go in spurts too. I expect to slow down now that school is starting up again.
