It's Monday, What Are You Reading?


It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. It is where book bloggers gather to share what we have read and what we plan to read over the next week.

Books I Read Last Week

Not another good reading week for me. I managed to finish one I had going for a while, and then read another.

The Matter With Morris by David Bergen (shortlisted for the Giller Prize which is announced tomorrow)
Independence Days by Sharon Astyk (my book for the Green Books Campaign)

What I Am Currently Reading

The Debba by Avner Mandelman (longlisted for the Giller Prize)

What I Plan To Read Next

Turns out I have problems reading my checkout list on the library website. I thought I had an extra week with some books, but I read the date wrong and now I have to change around my reading schedule.

How to Read the Air by Dinaw Mengistu (I really need to start this one this week!)
Great House by Nicole Krauss
The Carnivore by Mark Sinnett (finalist for 2010 Toronto Book Awards)

How is your reading? Are you having more luck than I am? I seem to be stalled a bit.

  1. Some interesting reads there Shan.

    I am on a roll with my reading. Totally into 84 Charing Cross Road at the moment.
    I have one on reserve from the library to pick up too.
    My TBR shelves are being neglected at the moment :)

    Happy Reading!

  2. I have Great House on my nook -- it sounds like a great story.

    Have a great week.

  3. A book a week isn't a bad trend. Took me 2 weeks to finish Her Fearful Symmetry. Great House is supposed to be interesting. Here's my Monday post. Here's to a more plentiful reading week :D

  8. For some reason, this week I'm running pretty behind; maybe because the holidays are coming? I don't know .. happens sometimes! I've read a lot of mixed reviews on Great House, which has me sort of iffy on it. Reading about The Debba, I think I'm going to have to take a closer look at it; it seems as though it would be a very interesting and different sort of read.
