It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. She's taking a bit of personal leave so I'm also linking to Kimberly at Caffeinated Book Reviewer.
It was another fairly uneventful week here. I had a girls' day out with some friends yesterday for an upcoming birthday. I drove halfway to meet them and they drove the other half, but I essentially traveled two hours for cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. Yes, I do think it's that good. :-) It was nice to spend time with them, laughing 'til we cried, and having time to really catch up on everything. My husband and I started actively planning for our upcoming trip to the coast of Maine. We think we've got the first half nailed down, but we've got some major sticker shock from the cost of hotels in Portland!
Posted:Review: Seriously Mum, What's an Alpaca by Alan Parks--2.5 Stars
Review: Fables: Animal Farm by Bill Willingham--3 Stars
Armada by Ernest Cline, read by Wil Wheaton
Moon: Coastal Maine by Hilary Nangle--I won't post a formal review of this one, but I'm not very happy with it as a guide book. I don't know if there are better travel guides for this part of the world, but I've definitely used books with better formats and information for other vacations.
Currently Reading:Shantaram by Gregory David Roberts
Rome, 1960: The Olympics that Changed the World by David Maraniss
Up Next:Maybe I'll finally make some headway on Shantaram this week. I've split my lunch breaks between my travel planning and my novel for a while now. I also need to download an audio book. As luck would have it, I had to pause Summer Knight when it was my turn for Armada and now I'm something like number six in line to get started on Summer Knight again.
