Welcome to my weekly update for August 22, 2011! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.
Review of Neil Gaiman and Charles Vess’ Stardust
Review of Major Pettigrew’s Last Stand by Helen Simonson, read by Peter Altschuler
Character Connection featuring Temeraire
Review of The Woods by Harlan Coben
The Betrayal of the Blood Lily by Lauren Willig–Love this series!
The Sweetness at the Bottom of the Pie by Alan Bradley, read by Jayne Entwistle–Loved Flavia de Luce!
Blankets by Craig Thompson–Beautiful graphic novel/memoir
Passing by Samaria by Sharon Ewell Foster
When You Are Engulfed in Flames by David Sedaris, read by the author
The Richest Man in Babylon by George S. Clason
The Innocents Abroad by Mark Twain–I’m so turned off by the way he seems to think everyone who isn’t an American is a dirty, lazy, greedy bastard that I’m struggling to read this. When he’s not going on about that, he’s funny and he has some great observations. We’ll see. It’s not going on the DNF list yet, but it’s getting close. Has anyone else read this? Am I missing something?
If I get to anything new this week, it will be The Odyssey, adapted into graphic novel form by Gareth Hinds.
What are you reading this week?
