It's Monday, What are You Reading?


What are you reading on Mondays? is a meme hosted by J. Kaye. This is our opportunity as bloggers to share what we've read in the past week and what we plan on reading this week. If you'd like to join in (it's really fun), go to J. Kaye's Book Blog and add your name to the list.

What I Read This Week:

Saint Ben ~ John Fischer
The Saints' and Angels' Song ~ John Fischer
Maggie: Life at The Elms ~ Eric Wiggin
Maggie's Homecoming ~ Eric Wiggin
Maggie's Secret Longing ~ Eric Wiggin
Liberated Through Submission ~ P. B. Wilson
The Hidden Valley Mystery ~ Helen Wells
The Innocent Libertine ~ T. Davis Bunn & Isabella Bunn

I didn't set aside any books that I started but couldn't finish this week.

What I am Currently Reading:

Helen In The Editor's Chair ~ Ruthe S. Wheeler
The Poor Little Rich Girl ~ Eleanor Gates

What I Want to Read This Week:

Well, I didn't get to my Trixie Belden's this past week and I don't think I'm even going to try to read them this week, so I've picked a few others instead.

The Noisy Seven: A Story of Seven Boys ~ Alice Pickford Brockway
Twenty-Four Hours A Day ~ Faith Baldwin
Under the Lilacs ~ Louisa May Alcott
An Old-Fashioned Girl ~ Louisa May Alcott
and maybe, just maybe
Kazan ~ James Oliver Curwood

Wish me luck, ya'll. All of the books on my list this week are OLD. And by old, I mean that the newest copy of any of the books listed above was printed in the 1950s. No offense to those of you who were born in that wonderful decade, but when it comes to books of that age, they aren't always in the greatest of shape. In fact, Helen in the Editor's Chair is actually a disaster. The published date in the book is 1932. I can guarantee you that particular book will never see the inside of my purse. :-) Anyway, my point in mentioning how old the books are is this. It is ever so much harder to read quickly and efficiently when you have to be careful and pay close attention to how you handle the pages. Don't get me wrong. I don't mishandle my books in anyway. In fact, I get teased by some people because even after reading a book twice, the spine isn't broken, and you really can't tell that I've read it.

Sheesh! Now that you've been given an entire history of how I read. LOL. What are you reading this Monday?

All these titles are new to me except for the Louisa May Alcott novels. I read all her books when I was young, and I thoroughly enjoyed them. Have a great week!

No wonder I haven't heard of any of these books! I was starting to wonder if I was out of the loop. I do remember reading Trixie Belden books when I was younger. I liked them a lot.

Happy Reading!
