Welcome to a new week and another opportunity to finish up that long lingering book (I am pointing that finger directly at me) or start that one on the top, or bottom, of your TBR list.
Oh, and of course … Happy Summer!
There was a great discussion last Thursday on Twitter under #FollowReader on Summer Reading. I personally don’t change my reading habits just because it’s the summer. I know there are books/genres that tend to be labeled Summer Reads (like I talked about in last Sunday’s “Beach Reads” post) since people tend to read them while traveling and on vacation, mostly because they are lighter fare. But, my travel isn’t usually confined to just the summer, so I find myself reading lighter fare on trains, airplanes, when I just want to chill, any time of year.
But to the topic at hand – what am I reading this week. Well, I am sick of saying that I am reading Crime and Punishment (a note though that I am not sick of the book, just in me not finishing it yet), and I will not allow myself to be in this situation again next week. So that’s on my reading list. I would like to add a few more, like Pride and Prejudice and Zombies (which I couldn’t resist picking up on Saturday) but I might have to dedicate myself to good ol’ Dostoevsky, that is of course after I also finish reading The Madonnas of Leningrad – I only have about 90 pages to go, so I will finish that up this week.
QUESTION OF THE DAY:
What are you reading this week? Is there any book staring at you that you feel compelled to absolutely finish this week? And in follow-up to the Twitter #FollowReader discussion, do you have any specific summer reads that are on your Summer of 09 TBR list?
