"All the best stories in the world are but one story in reality -- the story of escape. It is the only thing which interests us all and at all times, how to escape."

It's Monday!! What Are You Reading???

This great meme is hosted by Sheila at "Book Journey".

 It's a great way to start the week and 
find out what other bloggers are reading.  
My To-Be-Read pile has grown to an 
unbelievable number thanks to this meme.
This cold is now over a week old and it have really been kicking my butt.  Most of the over the counter meds don't mix well with my daily meds as I found out one day.  I had to reread an entire book from one of my favorite series because the next day I couldn't have told anyone what it was even about.  Funny thing too, it wasn't like a skim reread, it was like reading for the first time.  So needless to say I haven't read much the past two weeks and have a lot of catching up to do.

If you want to see what else happened in my crazy week last week be sure to read my Feel Good Friday post below.  No wonder my hair is so gray.
So here is my measly reading list for the past two weeks.  At least they were really good books.

Not planning too far ahead this week, need to see what the UPS and FEDEX drivers may bring.  Hopefully this cold will go away and I can get back on track.

Happy Reading Everyone!!!

You always have the best lists. I have been wanting to read Snow Day and may even have it, so I should poke around my piles. I have The False Friend to read and I read Once Wicked Always Dead and look forward to your thoughts. Happy reading.

I love the covers of the Elizabeth Lynn Casey books and A Holiday Yarn looks like a nice holiday read. I think I have to start reading Christmas books soon. Hope you're feeling better soon.
