What Are You Reading?

Today is Monday, June 19, 2011...What Are You Reading?

You're broken, and bruised
I'm sorry for your fall
That bike was possessed
It wasn't your fault at all

A cast and some band-aids
A hospital visit you had
At least friends were there
To keep you from being sad

You picked yourself up
And kept traveling afar
You won't let this fall keep you down
You're my star!

Our hostess of It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is Sheila from Book Journey.  Sheila had a blind date with the pavement last week while riding her bike, and everyone at Alison's Book Marks wishes her well!

Oh my goodness, I'm so envious you get to experience Garden Spells for the first time. I loved, loved that book.

Also, how was the Andrew Zimmern book? I read his last one and loved it, so I'll have to check this one out!

I love the poem for Sheila!

I hope you're listening to the audio version of Rococo!!

Alison's Book Marks said...

Of COURSE I'm listening to the audio of Rococo, read by Mario! I feel like I'm a fly on the wall in Adriana's kitchen when I hear his voice. Her words + his voice = perfect together!
