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!
Well my Monday started with a heavy frost on the ground. Much of the country has snow, although not where I am, we hardly ever see it except on the back hills. I love cold weather so I am happy.
Last Tuesday I looked after my two and half year old great nephew at his grandmother's house for six hours, as everyone had to be elsewhere. I really enjoyed it but was exhausted for about two days after! He experienced the mini tornado last week so a couple of times he told me about the big bad wind. Usually he would be keen to go out to the park etc, but he wanted to stay at Nanny's house, so that's what we did. It is going to take him time to regain his confidence. I was amazed at a two year olds vocabulary and how well we could communicate.
I also went to see The BFG movie (Roald Dahl), for old times sakes of reading it aloud to classes. I actually couldn't remember it that well, but my teacher colleague and friend could tell me all the strayings from the book! I could just remember the bond it formed with the listeners as I read it but it was many years ago now. Nothing better than a read aloud book that works.
What I read last week:
From my TBR shelf I read these. Both very enjoyable and four star reads.
Family Tree is for review and their will be a post, I liked it of course, although not quite as much as some of her other books.
This is an historical romance, part of a series called the Survivor's Club and I liked it a lot.
What I am reading at present:
Today I will be starting a book from an Australian author I really, really enjoy. Publishes this week.
I will be starting to listen to...
I just need to get out walking again - been a bit lazy. Okay... a lot!
I did set out to read this one a couple of weeks ago but got sidetracked. Will be a definite this week!
Then on to...
One I bought recently and just must read!!
