Monday's Beginnings (7)

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 five books. Four 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). I do have to say I finished ONE book this week! (The Blade Itself)

Well, for me today: I have started a new book today, Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins. I am currently on page 45 out of 391 pages. As I have mentioned I am a slow reader, but I have high hopes this book will go faster. The first book in this series was a fast read for me, it was over a weekend so I could put more time into it but this on has started out just as exciting and I once again have not been let down and don't want to put it down. Today was a okay day. I was bored at work, so don't tell anyone but I picked up my book from time to time when I was to be working to read. If the week keeps going on this path I should have Catching Fire finished before the end of the week and into my next book. I will have to wait and see what it will be from my growing stack of tbr books. I tried last week putting more time into the books than online. I really hope no one minds. I also got caught up from Thursday through Sunday with events that took time from my reading and the online stuff. Uncles wedding, family time, and a golf outing with work; so I was running around a little bit. I am hoping this week with begin to calm down to the way I am use to; calm, relaxing quite time at home.

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


  1. Hi, Melissa! I see that you've started Catching Fire. I can't wait to read your review.

  2. I still havent read these two books - but want to! I dont think I have heard a bad thing about either one of them.

  3. Hi Peter! I am hooked on this one already. I havn't got to read much of it tonight with trying to catch up on some blogs and such, but I can't wait to get back to it.

    Good evening Sheila! I think you would just devour these books. I think you would enjoy them just as much as everyone else is. I am surprised at how much I am enjoying these reads. You are going to have to pick these up for yourself.

    Thanks to both of you for stopping by.
