Book Journey
It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I missed posting last week because of the holiday, so over the past two weeks, I've

Read:
A Storm of Swords by George R. R. Martin--I finally finished this thousand-page monster! I did love it, but I was getting sick of carrying it around. At least I built some muscle!

Seabiscuit: An American Legend by Laura Hillenbrand--Page-turning non-fiction. Who knew?

Everlost by Neal Shusterman, read by Nick Podehl--It was okay. I didn't really like very many of the characters.

Reviewed:

I might get through Leaving Gee's Bend this week. It looks pretty short. Right now a graphic novel, The Dark Tower: The Gunslinger Born is looking pretty good. I might stop by the library and pick it up.

  3. I was planning on buying Clash of Kings at Borders when I went to buy that Stark glass, but some guy had bought up all those copies. Geez, you only need one book, leave some for the rest of us! I guess this leaves me motivated to finish reading the books languishing on my shelves.

    I'm currently reading the first book in Maureen Ash's Templar Knight series The Alehouse Murders. It's seems to be shaping up into just the kind of mystery story that I like to read.

  4. What a great collection of books on your blog this week.

    Summer school begins for me so my reading for fun will take second place to reading for homework. So my reading for fun will have to take second place to reading for school. Come see what I finished in my last week of vacation.

  5. I felt exactly the same way about Everlost. I don't think I will be reading the rest in the trilogy. I did like his standalone book, Unwind though.

  6. I would have never guessed Sea Biscuit to be a page turner - so I guess I didnt know :)

    Have a super week - you accomplished a lot in two weeks!

  10. Travels with Charley is interesting as recent popular history--many of the things he sees aren't the same now.

  11. Did you enjoy Seabiscuit? I enjoyed the movie, which I saw before I read the book. The book wasn't so enjoyable for me, though.
