Monday's Beginnings (65)

How are you faring in reading at the beginning of this week?  Are you starting a new book or finishing one up?

Well, again I have high hopes for the week.  I know its Thanksgiving week here in the US, but I don't do the cooking.  No, it's not really that I don't want to, but all our parents have the breakfasts, dinners, and such at their places.  So I get to do the traveling.  So I am hoping to read in the car. :)  Then I am taking Wednesday off of work to do some stuff with out house, so I'm hoping to get some reading done in the am after my son gets on the bus.  Hoping, as the husband will probably have something for me to do, but there is always hope.

I am working on a few books:  Geist by Philippa Ballantine, Blood Lite II Overbite by Kevin J. Anderson and I still have Way of Kings by Brandon Sanderson in the wings here.  I will have Geist done this week and maybe work on Blook Lite II.

I did get some reviews up over the weekend.  If you would like to jump over to read them, click the name here in this list:
     Hell Fire  by Ann Aguirre
     Spellspam  by Alma Alexander

Just in the news here at My words and pages:
   I will have a guest post by Philippa Ballantine on November 29th.  Please mark your calendars to remember to stop back by and check out the great post Philippa will be doing.  I have to say her book so far is rather amazing.  You all should look into it. :)
   Robyn from The Bookaholic Zone and I will be starting our chat on Caitlin Kittredge's three books of The Black London series.  Would you like to see the schedule we have planned?  CLICK HERE.  Hope to see you at the chats. :)

My WANT list... 11 books!! Wow. That is one the greatest weeks I've had in a long time.  Oh this poor list. ;) I really do love the selection I have here.

Books Received Last Week:

Well, can you believe I got NO books!?!?  I couldn't.  It's been a very long time since I've had a week where I didn't buy at least one book.  But, I will make up for it this week. :)  But, my book shelves could use a break from the addition for one week, I guess.

So, how are you faring this week?  Does it look like a good reading week?

Here's to you having a great week in words and pages.


  1. I hope it will be a good reading week but for me if it happens it will be more towards the end of the week into the weekend. I do not have a lot going on this weekend so it could be some good reading time!

  2. No reading for me, but it sounds like you're busy! ;)

  3. Wow, it sounds like you have your hands full with so many books to read. But with so much traveling perhaps you can read it in the car (that's what I do. Hope you have a great thanksgiving!

  4. Ooh. Reading in the car is great. It is going to be a long drive?

    Looking forward to your Sanderson review...

  5. I'm SO jealous!! I can't read in a car... instant headache. *sniff* So, I can't get any reading done until I'm home from the holiday feast. Hope you enjoy your reading. Think of me suffering since I can't read for that time. ;)

  6. Before I respond to all your wonderful comments I just want to say I am sorry for being a slacker this past week. In preping for the holiday and then running around more than expected I got behind in commenting and posting. Thank you all!

    Sheila (Bookjourney) - Thank you so much for stopping by! I completely understand the crazyness of Thanksgiving. :) Hope you had a great week.

    Jamie!! Hey! So glad you stopped by! And thank you. :) I think we could forgive you on the reading front, for the writing. ;D Hope you had a great week and Thanksgiving last week!

    Simcha - I was hoping to get more reading done this past weekend with Thanksgiving, but it all seemed to not work as planned. Oh well, I'll get to it all some time soon here. :)

    Alisha (My Need to Read) - Hi! We trave at least an hour away, depending on traffic maybe longer. But we ended up talking about all the things we have going on at home. So I ended up short on the reading front. Hope you had a wonderful week though. :) Thank you for stopping by!

    Melissa (Books&Things)- There are lots of people who can't read in the car. Many people ask me how I can do it. I don't know how, I just got lucky I think. :) I hope you had a wonderful week and Thanksgiving. :)
