"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."
--Author Christopher Benson

It's Monday!! What Are You Reading?



This great meme is hosted by Sheila at

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.

One thing I learned this past week is that Spring, just when the weather gets nice, is NOT the time to do a Read-A-Thon.  Baseball games, Spring Cleaning, and playing with my grandson took away reading time and I did horrible at the Read-A-Thon.

Sidne,
At first I thought The Social Climbers Network was going to be Chick Lit with a little twist, but it is not at all. It is turning into a really eerie look at the life of a peculiar family.

Three books a week is good, if I get three read in a week I am a happy reader. That was my goal in the Read-A-Thon last week and I was so happy I accomplished my goal.

I just received Bullet Work in the mail last week, however, I don't know when I will get around to reading it. Maybe in a few weeks.

HI Lori,

Enjoy your reading week.
Am hoping to get back to normal here after a month of holidays be it public holidays or our own family hol. Never thought I would crave a normal week so much :)

The wonderful thing about looking at what others are reading, is being introduced to so many books I haven't even heard of :-)

Julie P said...

I love your Monday posts and always look forward to them!

Ha- Lost and Fondue - cute title. I have been wanting to read Kate Carlisle. Are her books stand alone or series?
Have a great week!

Crystal (I totally paused!) said...

I haven't even tried to do any readathons recently, just too much going on! I've been trying to do my yardwork too :)

These look like good books. I really like the art work for the cover on "Murder Under Cover." BTW I usually only get two books read a week. I week is full of other things that rob my time. GREAT post!
