It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Thanks to Sheila of One Person's Journey Through A World Of Books for hosting "It's Monday! What Are You Reading?"

After a week of pain in my head and face, I finally broke down today and went into the dentist to have him confirm that I had an abscess and needed a root canal. Thanks to all of that pain, I haven't felt like doing much reading of late. This week I will finish and review:

The Lotus Eaters by Tatjana Soli

Where The Sidewalk Ends by Shel Silverstein

Later this week I'll start:

South of Broad by Pat Conroy

and continue reading:

Something Like Beautiful by Asha Bandele

So what are you reading this week? Has spring break had an impact on your reading? My younger two have spring break next week and I'm really hoping that opens up more reading time for me!


  1. ugh - root canal. I have had more of these than I care to count but I generally find that they are much less painful that I anticipate and they do bring pretty complete relief to the tooth pain that precedes them - hope you are feeling some of that relief soon!

    I look forward to your thoughts on "South of Broad" - I have that one on my shelf.

  2. {HUGS} for end to toothpain! ouch.
    I'm reading and loving Oryx&Crake by Atwood.

  3. Oh .. hope you feel better soon! That totally sucks. You have a good list of books, looking forward to your thoughts on them.

  4. I loved Where the Sidewalk's even better on CD because Shel reads it!!

    I'm sending you good vibes for that root canal!!!

  5. Ouch! Oh, I'm sorry to hear that.

    Not a very good spring break for you is it?

  6. These look like good ones! I'm If I stay, Mansfield Park, and Stolen Lives.
