It’s Monday – What are you Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Sheila at bookjourney to allow us to share with others in the book-loving cyberworld what is on our reading plates.
This week I finished the following books:
- The Forgotten Garden by Kate Morton
- Silas Marner: The Weaver of Raveloe by George Eliot
- The Finkler Question by Howard Jacobson
Books in Progress:
- Michelangelo and the Pope’s Ceiling by Ross King
- Purge by Sofi Oksanen
- The Best European Fiction 2010 edited by Aleksandar Hemon
Also — ta da — I will be starting War & Peace sometime this week. I’ve started on the introduction but haven’t gotten to page one of the novel yet. I’m actually looking forward to it — there was a great blog post last week on The Blue Bookcase with tips on reading this novel and that gave me a boost.
This week is reading group week — I have meetings on Monday & Wednesday — and I have to start thinking about cleaning my house in preparation for Thanksgiving next week (we are having dinner at our house and my parents will be visiting from Winnipeg) so I will likely be a busy beaver with hopefully a few minutes to spare for reading. Oh, and my Blogiversary is next Sunday, so I’m also planning something for that.
What are you reading this week?
