it’s monday! what are you reading?

It’s Monday, what are you reading?—a weekly blog meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

I’m late to the party today, but I had a pretty decent week of reading! I finished the KC Library Winter Reads program (post coming soon), and after much deliberation was able to pick another book. I spent far too long standing in front of the bookcase going back and forth between a few, but ultimately decided on The Hot House by Pete Earley.

The Hot House is a non-fiction that chronicles the lives of inmates and guards over the course of three years in the late 1980s at Leavenworth Prison in Leavenworth, Kansas. This book has been on my radar for a few years, ever since I got more into non-fiction and realized just how close Leavenworth is to where I live, Kansas City, Missouri. I’m about 20 pages in so far and already it’s making me want to re-watch my Oz DVDs! The Hot House is on my TBR Pile Challenge this year.

What are you reading this week?

  1. Happy to find your blog! While my own writing focus is largely on food, I’ve started offering fiction and nonfiction book giveaways. In crafting reviews, I am happy to learn from folks who have been at this longer than I! 🙂
