It's Monday- What Are You Reading?

It's Monday, What Are You Reading? is a fun weekly meme hosted by Sheila at Book Journey. This is where we share what we've read the previous week and what we're planning to read this week. It's a great way to see what others are reading (and add more books to the TBR pile!)

Didn't Finish:
The Bolter by Frances Osborne. I started this biography of Idina Sackville interested in finding out what would compel a woman in WWI-era England to leave her children and husband and consequently remarry six times, but it began to feel like just a repetition of what she did each day. That's normally my problem with reading biographies! I might come back to this when I have the time and energy to really dig in.

Currently Reading:
I told myself I would wait to read it until after I finished some of the library books I have out, but the brand new copy of Lauren Willig's latest The Orchid Affair was tempting me too much! I'm also into Reading Jackie, by William Kuhn, about her time as an editor and the books she selected.

Up Next:
Certain Women by Madeleine L'Engle, the first for the 2011 Faith and Fiction roundtable. You can join in the conversation about it on February 26.

What are you reading this week?


  1. Reading Jackie sounds very good.

  2. I love orchids--that cover is gorgeous! Reading Jackie sounds fascinating. I didn't know she was an editor. Have a great reading week :)

  3. Reading Jackie is sparking my interest too! :")

  4. YAY! I am reading Certain Women this week too... have to get ready for the discussion.

  5. Thank you for posting about my book, Reading Jackie. It was a lot of fun to do the research for this book! Let me know how it strikes you. Bill Kuhn
