"It's Monday, What Are You Reading?"

 Last week was March Break so everyone was off school.  It was nice to have a week of staying up late and not setting the alarm, but it can't last forever so now it's back to the daily grind!  I always make big reading plans for the school holidays and then find that we're so busy doing all sorts of stuff,  I don't get to pick up many books.  Hopefully, going back to our schedule I'll be able to read more.  I have so many great books sitting in my TBR pile!

What I Read Last Week
The Doctor's Lady by Jody Hedlund is a Historical Christian fiction at it's finest.  It's a fictional story of the first white woman to cross the Continental Divide.  Northanger Abbey by Jane Austen is my selection for the Classics Club spin.  I haven't read a lot of Austen's work, but I have a feeling this one may end up as my favourite!

What I'm Reading Now
Persecuted by Paul Marshall, Lela Gilbert and Nina Shea looks at the countries around the world where Christians face persecution.  Mount Pleasant by Don Gillmor tells the story of a man who is deep in debt and finds out when his father dies that his inheritance is gone so he digs into his fathers past to find out what happened to it.

What I'm Reading Next
Hell-Bent by Benjamin Lorr is about Bikram Yoga and Lorr's own experience participating in the World Asana Championship.  I will be reading Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe as part of a read-along hosted by Listra at Half-Filled Attic.

What are you reading this week?

  10. I'm not a huge Jane Austen fan yet but glad to hear that Northanger Abbey had you laughing. I wasn't crazy about Pride & Prejuidice until the very end but then loved Persuasion because I could relate to the protagonist. I probably need another Austen novel to be the tie-breaker :). Hope you enjoy your reading this week. Here's my monday list...http://momssmallvictories.com/its-monday-what-are-you-reading-march-18-2013/
