It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Is it really possible I’m back down to two books at the moment?? I used to be a strict one-book-at-a-time person, and then I started joining readalongs and a book group at my library… but I still wanted to read my other books I had that I was interested in… and I think that’s what happened, how I ended up with way more than one book on my plate at any given time this year.
Well, as of today I’m back down to two: Packers: Green, Gold and Glory by Sports Illustrated and Stephen King’s 11/22/63 for the 112263Along. I’m halfway through both right now, and I’m sure I will easily finish the Packers book this week—it’s quick reading, short snippets about players and specific games, with lots of archival photography. I really love it! And of course I planned on reaching the halfway point in 11/22/63 on the same date as the anniversary of JFK’s assassination and the middle of our readalong. You can read my halfway post here.
Otherwise… I’m toying with an idea for my four days off later this week for the holiday. I have kept plans and obligations to a minimum, so I think I may be able to squeeze in a few (short) books over the long weekend… my own mini-readathon. Here are the books I have in mind:
- Roll Me Up and Smoke Me When I Die … Willie Nelson (192 pages)
- Room … Emma Donoghue (321 pages)
- The Silent Wife … A.S.A. Harrison (326 pages)
- The Bean Trees … Barbara Kingsolver (232 pages)
I think I might be able to read these four pretty quickly, even the 300-plus-page ones. I might give it a shot and see how far I can get. Have you read any of these four? Were they quick reads? Worth it?
What are you reading this week? Anyone else going for their own mini-readathon?
