Monday's Beginnings (6)

This is the beginning of a new week!

So, I am wondering:

Where you are in your books or are you starting a new book for the new week?

The beginning of the week always seems to be a great time to start anew. To me it seems to be the way Monday goes is a sign of how the week will follow. Have you been able to get much reading time in today? Or are you going to be rushed all week to get everything into the short 24 hour day?

I am still adding numerous books to my reading list. This week it has grown by TEN books. Some of these books are together in a series. This really is a wonderous thing! You are all helping to keep me out of trouble and these wonderful authors in work. I am kind of trying to make notes of books to read but the must, must reads are on the top of the list (that is what list these books are on).And once again I have finished no books this week.

Well, for me today: I am still in the process of reading The Blade Itself by Joe Abercrombie. I am currently on page 406 out of 527 pages. Yep, I told you, I really am a slow reader. I am hoping since today was just a nice day all around with work, family, and friends that the week will be as relaxing as today. If the week keeps going on this path I hope to have The Blade Itself finished before the end of the week and into my next book. I will have to wait and see what it will be, although I do have a very good idea of what it will be. I feel I havn't been reading as much of my books as I would like. I think I am going to try to keep up with everyones blogs and comment as much as I can, but I am going to try to steer my time to reading a little more. I do hope no one gets to greatly upset with me. I just would like to give you more reviews than what I am able to do, which means more reading time with my books.

So... this leaves us with one question left... Where are you?


  1. Hey! I, personally, am still working on catching up with yesterday. I'll get there eventually. Sounds like you are getting quite a TBR pile! So many books, so little time. Looking forward to your review of The Blade Itself. (I'm usually a lurker, I'm afraid, but I do read people's posts.)

  2. I was hoping to get some reading done today but today was one of the days where my commitments were just far enough apart for me not to be able to do anything!

    I am still in Cleopatra's Daughter... I will post about it tomrrow in my Its Tuesday where are you post.

  3. Pixie - Its great to see you stopping by. I really do appreciate it! So true, so many books so little time...

    Sheila - Hello! I can't what to hear where you are with Cleopatra's Daughter. I always loved the Egyptian ideas/themes. I love all they have done and accomplished.

  4. I think I'm going to have to get Kathy Griffith's book. I need it.

  5. I have not been doing too well with my "personal" reading lately because I'm having to do so much reading for my history class and then my college algebra class is KILLING me! And I know what you mean about adding to the pile (I call mine the iceberg!). Check out my latest blog post...I bought 9 books Saturday at a used book sale! I just can't stop..... =o)

  6. Ryan, you just amaze me. All the books you have and all the wonderful ones you seem to find with ease. Now you are going to add Kathy Griffith's book. Wow!

    Michelle, I don't have school work to keep me from reading. Truthfully, I don't really have any good excuses. Just life seems to take over; work, kids, home... The stuff that just goes funny at times. Don't feel bad I just bought 3 more books that I am not sure when I will get to reading them. It is such an addiction. LOL!
