It is Monday! And Where are Your Bookmarks This Week?

Some good reading going on this week.  In the last few days I have managed to read about 2/3 of The Hunger Games.  I had lots of bonus points at Scholastic from my Christmas purchases, so I got the trilogy, in the slipcase (woohoo, Buddy!).

Side note for bathtub readers - if you set your brand-new, never-opened, paperback copy of The Hunger Games on the edge of the tub, and there is a small pool of water there, the pages will puff up and not want to go back into the slipcase. Just an fyi.  Bathtub reading is why I am a Kindle hold-out!

Anyway, so far, it is really good and I am formulating all sorts of deep thoughts on it.  Will articulate those at my end-of-the-month roundup.

Between last Monday and today I also read The Pioneer Woman: From Black Heels to Tractor Wheels by Ree Drummond.  Again, review will be in the roundup.  It did not cause any deep thoughts.

Still reading my Bible studies, including (and especially) Knowing God by J.I. Packer. I HIGHLY recommend this book. I am on chapter 5, and it has already given me many things to consider.  I am reading it along with a sister in Christ, and looking forward to being able to discuss it together.  I love how the Lord encourages us not only with His word, but through the study and talents of other believers.

Still on Pippi Longstocking and Prisoner of Azkaban, but I think we will finish this Harry Potter in a few days.  The boys are excited - they love the books, and we do not watch the movie until after we finish the book, so they are looking forward to seeing it.  Next weekend, maybe????

I have not read any Organized Simplicity this week.  It may sit with the bookmark not moving for a few weeks, until I have time to do some of the activities.  When I get more organized.  Such a catch-22.

And.....what are YOU reading this week?


  1. I'm reading Pinckert's Practical Grammar, How to Write a Sentence, The Great Gatsby, Iqbal (with a boy) and Friends Like Us by Lauren Fox. None of it is inspiring me at the moment. I am very bored with my reading at the moment and it's making me a little snappish.

    1. Ha! Belle--snappish? Love it. I'm going to steal that word. How to Write a Sentence does not exactly sound inspiring.

  2. Have you read The Hunger Games? You would definitely like it.

    Not to give previews on my monthly round up, but......don't read The Pioneer Woman book. Shame, too - I love her cookbook.

    1. I loved the Hunger Games trilogy. I'm waiting for the movie to come out....I hope it isn't too violent.


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.
