What are You Reading...

Sheila at Book Journey hosts this weekly event where we celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

I always feel, at this time of year, that when I'm done with classes I'll have heaps of time to complete my household tasks. HUH! double HUH!. Not so.  Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday are my cleaning days.  Well last Monday, I went to get my eyebrows done and my hair colored so that was that, and Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday I spent at the seniors home with my mom doing a used book sale.  While the sale was a huge success, it was a lot of work and not my housework, so now I have piles of stuff sitting around that needs clearing up.   (along with leftovers from the sale).  So this week I'm not going anywhere, and I'm cleaning and baking.  I'll be stopping to read of coarse.

Last week I finished (reluctantly, I just didn't want this book to end.) The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society.  I think I may have to go and re-read this one.  This is a 5out of 5 star for me. I chose this book for my Take Another Chance Challenge, so glad I did.  Although I had read many a review, I really didn't expect to enjoy reading the book so much.  I love reading books that are a series of letters.  My boys always say this is a federal offense, BAH! Reading someone else's mail that is.  BAH I say.  I have a whole box of my mother's letters that I must someday organize, but in the mean time I'll enjoy everyone else's publications.  What's up for the rest of my reading week, well I have the remainder of the list for this challenge.  I believe up next should be the Yiddish Policeman's Union.
Let's hope I don't get too involved and burn my cookies.

I have that book on my Kindle, started to read it, lost interest, and completely forgot about it! I guess I need to put it back up in the que for reading!

Thanks for visiting Irene.
mmm...I don't know why but everyone I heard of loved that book, and I did read it from beginning to end eventually, but can't understand what they are on about.
mmm...must be just me. Normally I love reading a series of letters.
