Currently Reading:


Yep. I love nonfiction. What of it?

...and the same books I listed last week

Bookish/Bloggish Business:

This week I shared the list of books my 8th grade daughter is reading this year for her homeschool English class. She's a lucky, lucky girl.

It's Bloggiesta this weekend and I really should be participating. I think I'll see about doing some challenges today. 

I hope you've had a fabulous week! What are you reading? What's happening?

  2. Looks like you've had a great weekend week. Yay you for getting your reading groove back!

    I'm just finishing up Colossus: Stone and Steel by David Blixt, a novel set in 1st century Judea, and will then probably read something a little bit lighter.

  7. You are a nerd. I already knew that, though. ;)

    As for what I'm reading, I'm working on The Iron Jackal by Chris Wooding, which is part of a series. I hope to make some progress tomorrow on it. Today was a day for napping and now watching The 39 Steps, a Hitchcock movie, also on TCM, with a group on Twitter for something called #hitchfest.

      Napping sounds lovely. I've heard tales of this #hitchfest, sounds like a hoot!

  9. Don't Hurry Me Down to Hades might have to be a Christmas gift to my mother, if it is out. She is a huge Civil War buff.

  12. Nerdy people unite. My 15yo daughter told me last week that I was a little nerdy. I told her I didn't want to announce it to the world. :)

  14. Yay for getting back into your groove! How is your quitting going?

    Aww, I missed Bloggiesta. Although I don't know that I have much blog work to do anyways... I'm really just waiting until I can afford to self-host before I make any of the changes I want to.
