It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organise yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date. And here we are!
And another Monday comes round. This week I was feeling a bit blah so on Tuesday I went to see the New Zealand movie Hunt For the Wilderpeople. Lots of my family had been and enjoyed it so off I went. Well I sure laughed and chuckled my way through it. It was a comedy, some a little over the top but the straight dour character played by Sam Neill kept it balanced. I am not much of a movie goer, always have good intentions but never quite get my act together usually.
While it has been released in Australia and about to be in the USA I suspect it will not play in a theatre near you! But in case it does, go!
My teddy bear block from my quilting class was returned. Someone else had taken it home!
I also won a $50 gift voucher from our local library because I was drawn from those who answered an online survey about their Axis 360 programme. The librarian told me that most people in the survey had asked for more audiobooks on it so I guess that has to be good. It has such a limited number that I don't bother with it much. I spent some of the money on a box that looks like books to house my quilt blocks while they are being assembled.
I added it to the box I had bought earlier in the week to house the blocks of another quilt I am doing.
I love bookie things!!
Are you still with me? Okay then you will learn that this week because it is the beginning of summer for many and the beginning of winter for a few, I am giving away a $15 Amazon USA voucher or a choice of a book to be sent to you. One person will be drawn from all those who link with their It's Monday! What Are You Reading? post this week. I'll do the draw later in the week - like Thursday NZ time and let you know next week.

Listening on my iPod:
Really disappointed with the narration of this one. The narrator received many good reviews, but I am just enduring. One voice - her own for all the characters.
Also listening to a library CD pack of:
