It's Monday -- What Are You Reading?

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at One Persons Journey Through a World of Books. It's is a weekly event to celebrate what we are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.

A very slow reading week -- lots of PTA prep work to get ready for our BOOK FAIR!  I will be in literary nirvana all week...hope you aren't jealous!

But a few books read (or partially so) are better than nothing!


The Rosewood Casket by Sharyn McCrumb (3 out of 5 stars -- entertaining historical fiction/mystery/ghost story)

The Rosewood Casket (Ballad Mystery, #4)


Moon Over Manifest by Clare Vanderpool (absolutely LOVING this book -- if I could just find the time to read more than a few pages before I fall hopelessly asleep).

February is Black History Month, so I think I'm going to start either:

The Bluest Eye by Toni Morrison

Bud, Not Buddy by Christopher Paul Curtis (juvenile fiction)

What are you reading this week?


  1. I should read something for black history month too! First I have to get my commitments read (book club selections).

    I never had time to read during the week and this weekend I put books to the side so I could hit the trails (in my new snowshoes)!

  2. I really liked the Bluest Eye, but you should read Bud, Not Buddy next. It is so wonderful! Have a great week

  3. Moon Over Manifest sounds good...hope you enjoy it.


  4. Bud Not Buddy is one of those books I should have read a long time ago but haven't yet. Hope you enjoy your books! :)

  5. I'm also reading books in February for Black History Month. I'm interested to see what you read for this theme.

  6. I read The Bluest Eye in high school and really need to pick it up again!

    My It's Monday post can be found here.

  7. Looks like a great line up! Have a fun week reading.

  8. You lost me at book fair! LOL Actually Bud not Buddy sounds interesting.

  9. It's a good idea to read something for Black History Month! Maybe I will do that as well.
