It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? hosted at Book Journey

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

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas and/or happy holiday and/or good week! I know I did.

I posted the sign up pages for the three challenges I host. I try to keep my challenges attainable so you can read only one book and meet the challenge! If you're a fan, I do have higher levels in my challenges as well. I hope you see something you like and you decide to join me in one, two, or all!

Currently Reading:
Gulp: Adventures on the Alimentary Canal by Mary Roach--I read Stiff by this author several years ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm off to a good start with this one too.

Maus I: A Survivor's Tale: My Father Bleeds History by Art Spiegelman--This is a re-read for me and my choice for my book club's January read. None of them have ever read a graphic novel so I'm curious to see what they think of it.

Up Next:
I should finish Maus I quickly and move on to Maus II: A Survivor's Tale: And Here My Troubles Began. What can I say? My book club ladies were good sports when I insisted we had to read the whole story. I also just downloaded Time Stops for No Mouse by Michael Hoeye, read by Campbell Scott. Can you believe that it just dawned on me that I'm on a mousy theme here? It was all done subconsciously! I guess I wanted some (hopefully) happy mice in the mix too.

What are you reading this week?

I have an affiliate relationship with Malaprop's, my local independent bookstore located in beautiful downtown Asheville, NC; and Better World Books. I will receive a small commission at no cost to you if you purchase books through links on my site. My opinions are completely my own.


  1. I might do the translation challenge as I have a couple of possible books I am going to read. When I saw it first I thought I wouldn't then I got a book recommendation that happens to be a translation so a little bit of a call to me!

  2. I will be checking out Interworld. Best of luck on your challenges. Happy New Year.

  3. I have heard the Lace Reader is amazing!

  4. I have also heard the Lace Reader is amazing and I hope you enjoy it and that I'll see you around my blog


  5. Happy reading and New Year! well done in your hosting several challenges - enjoy :)

  6. I really must read a Mary Roach book I keep hearing such great things.
    Good luck with your new 2015 challenges.

  7. I'm glad you enjoyed your Christmas celebrations!

    Wishing you a happy new year!

  8. Glad you had a great week. Happy New year!

  9. I did the Southern Literature Challenge in 2014 and completed goals were small, though. I often read Southern writers anyway, so it was easy. Maybe I should do it again and up the ante.

    I am currently reading Everything I Never Told You....

    Glad you had a great Christmas...have a good New Year, too. Here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES

  10. I'm going challenge-free in 2015. Keeping up with my review stack is enough of a challenge for me. You can see my week here. Have a great week and happy new year!

  11. I've had a friend recommend the Lace Reader to me repeatedly....I'll have to give it a try!


Thanks for taking the time to comment! Have a great day!
