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 one book: Crossing the Heart of Africa by Julian Smith, which I will be reviewing later this week.
Books in Progress:
- The Best European Fiction 2010 edited by Aleksandar Hemon (I’m dipping in and out of it as I have time, some of the stories so far are really good, others just aren’t my cup of tea)
- War & Peace by Leo Tolstoy
I am quite impressed with my progress so far with War & Peace. I am on page 595 and so far am ahead of my 160 page/week pace. Unlike other long classics I’ve attempted recently (Ulysses and Proust’s In Search of Lost Time), this novel is easier to follow and one that I can read pretty much anywhere. And it is very enjoyable.
This week I also prepared my reading lists for three challenges in 2011: What’s in a Name Challenge 4, Back to the Classics Challenge, and the TBR Pile Challenge. With only one exception, which I can pick up at the library, these books will be from my to-read shelves. There are a few more challenges that I might join, but I need to give it some more thought.
What are you reading this week?
