It's Monday - What Are You Reading This Week?

Two books I started in the last week and then put back down:  Confessions of a Prairie B*, by Alison Arngrim, which I almost couldn't start because of the title.  Once I started it though, I decided that it probably wasn't worth my time.  I had read Melissa Gilbert's tell-all a few years ago, and I regret the loss of the hours of my life spent on that book.  This one is shorter, but still......

My bookmark is still moving slowly through Don't Waste Your Life, by John Piper.  It is something I usually read in the morning, along with my Bible and devotional reading.  So, it may take a while. 

This weekend I started the newest Flavia De Luce mystery I Am Half-Sick of Shadows, by Alan Bradley.  And today I received a lovely box from Amazon which contained Organized Simplicity: The Clutter-Free Approach to Intentional Living by Tsh Oxenreider (why doesn't her first name have any vowels????).

I also put back Death At Wentwater Court by Carola Dunn.

It reminded me slightly of Her Royal Spyness mysteries, but just not as fun.  So back into the bag it went.  I also read a few pages of Sherwood Anderson's Winesburg, Ohio.  I don't know what I was thinking.  I tossed that back into the library bag as well.

Hmmm, that was three books, not two.  Getting picky I guess.  But really, you need to be.  There is only so much time available for reading, and I refuse to waste that time on a bad book.  And that is that!

I will post some reviews on my monthly round up.

And what is YOUR bookmark moving through this week?


  1. The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe; The House of Mirth; and Turn of Mind. All pretty good!

  2. I looked at Don't Waste Your Life, but didn't read too much. Let me know if it is good. I'm reading Total Truth by Nancy Pearcey. It's a thinker book, but it's really very good.

  3. I'm reading a book called Finding Father by AJ Jones. I'm not thrilled with it so far, but it's getting me before the Father, which, is a good thing.


I love-love-love comments! If anything I've said touches you or makes you think in any way, please let me know. I check for comments frequently through the day.
