What Are You Reading?

Today is Monday, May 31, 2010...What are you reading on this glorious Memorial Day?

This is an extra special edition of It's Monday, What Are You Reading? because last week I met, live in person, the lovely, the talented, and the oh so sweet Sheila, our hostess at Book Journey

Sheila/Book Journey & Me

I am working on my Book Expo America and Book Bloggers Convention posts (having issues with the pics), but a highlight of the week was meeting and chatting with Sheila.  I did not know ANY book bloggers going into any of these events, which was extremely scary, but Sheila went out of her way several times to make me feel welcome and loved and she will never know what that meant to me. 

So, thank you, Sheila, for making me feel a part of the gang!

Now, on to business...which is extremely embarassing.  If it were not for Sheila, I would not have posted this week, because even though I was surrounded by books, books, books, all week long, I didn't get any reading done. 

I actually said to Kristi/The Story Siren while standing on line for a copy of Beautiful Darkness, "This is not normal for me.  I'm on a line for 30 minutes, and I'm not reading!  What's wrong with me!?!"

Lots of books...very little reading.  More on that to come.

Hi Alison,
Today I'm finishing Major Pettigrew's Last Stand by Helen Simonson. It is a jewel! A love story set in a small English village.

I'm jamming through "I am Number Four" - pretty fun read.

Helen - Ever since Major Pettigrew was featured in the IndieNext list, it has been on my TBR list. I should bump it up, it sounds great!

thefamiliars - I am Number Four is one of the books that caught my eye at BEA, but didn't seem to catch it. Enjoy!

You've got some nice books lined up there. Especially the Chris Cleave book. So many people seem to enjoy it. I haven't picked it up (yet!).

Hi Allison - I was thrilled to meet you too and had a lot of fun talking to you. Dont feel bad - my reading dropped off last week as well and I didnt even make a plan for this week :D
