It’s Monday – What are you reading?

19 Sep


It’s Monday – What are you reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It’s a great post to organise yourself. It’s an opportunity to visit and comment, and er… add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye’s Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

so I promised at the end of August (jeez, has it been 2 weeks already) – that I was going to try and do better about being more consistent with blog posts – and what better way to do that, than the do a weekly meme about what are you reading? I’ve participated in It’s Monday, what are you reading? on and off through the years – and its always a good way to just capture my thoughts on different books that i have in progress…so without further ado…

Currently Reading:
Like always, I have a variety of books that are currently in progress – some are on my kindle, some are in print and others are in audiobook. I know of describe it as a reader’s version of ADD (also know as multiple book syndrome).


I have (at least) 6 books that are currently in reading progress – from a non-fiction about mental endurance when it comes to endurance thoughts – because seriously, my brain decided to screw with me every time I do a long distance race (and my review of the book when I post it will focus more on that); to a cult classic of Peyton Place (also known as the book that shocked the nation); to a new author I discovered via Kindle Unlimited (Alison Kent). Pretty much all of the books that I am currently reading are related to different reading challenges that I am currently participating in – which is probably what makes my reading choices seem so bi-polar at times.

My book ADD is continuing with my audiobook choices – normally, I only have 1 book going at once, but for some reason, while I’m enjoying the books i’m listening to, I have a short attention span right now.


I think its safe to say, after listening to the first 2 CD’s (and a bit) of Grunt that I now know more about genital reconstruction than I ever wanted to know – but that honestly doesn’t surprise me because where her brain goes in these books honestly scares me at times. I’m also alternating between book 2 in Margaret Atwood’s MaddAddam trilogy – about a world where corporations reign supreme and genetic engineering is taken for granted; and Dark Skye, book 15 in Kresley Cole’s Immortals After Dark series. It’ll be interesting to see how I balance listening to the three of these over the next week – haha!

What about you – what is on the reading pile for this upcoming week?

    Getting ready for moderating discussion in the Baseball Book Club for the first time, so I am reading the two books for October discussion,”Shoeless Joe” and “Money-back.”

    Of note on the first one, the author, W.P. Kinsella, passed away this weekend. Read many interesting items on him. Even if those who follow this blog don’t care about sports, both of these books have been made into award winning films. Field of Dreams was based on “Shoeless Joe” and Brad Pitt was nominated for the Oscar for his work on Moneyball.

    I’m impressed! I can’t usually handle two books at a time.

    Thats is a great book haul. Enjoy reading all of those fine looking books. I too have trouble concentrating on more than one book at time and find non fiction harding to maintain my attention.
    Have a fantastic reading week!

      i’ll admit i’m normally not a huge NF fan – but i love Mary roach’s stuff – i term her quirky non-fiction and often recommend her to ppl who struggle with NF – because you may be laughing too hard (or trying to not have a visceral reaction) to realize its non-fiction
