Welcome to my weekly update for February 10, 2014! It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Is anybody else buried in Olympics coverage? I don’t think my tv has been off since Thursday evening unless we were sleeping or not home. This may wreak havoc on my reading week!

  1. We're all over the Olympics, loving it! Not getting much reading done though as a result… A Feast for crows will do that, just wait til A Dance with Dragons. It's even longer if I remember right…

  2. I am a winter Olympics addict! I briefly considered calling off work until they are over so that I don't miss anything. 😉

    How to Read Literature Like a Professor sounds really good! I think I will check that out!

  3. I don't really watch the Olympics though I have caught the snowboarding where the USA took gold and a bit of skiiing when there is nothing else on TV to watch..lol. Not heard of any of the books you have so I hope you enjoy your reads. 🙂


  4. I don't enjoy watching the Olympics…I know, I'm probably in the minority. But I am hooked on Netflix, so that fights with my reading time. Enjoy your week, and here's MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES

  5. I'm watching the short run skiing right at this minute, lots os people crashing out.

    You'll have to read on the ads!

  6. I'm not a big Olympics fan, so I'm using the time to read and catch up on other shows I've recorded. Enjoy your books!

  7. You really should be able to count George R. R. Martin's books for more than just one. Maybe 1 book per inch of thickness… Come see my Monday Report if you get a chance. Happy reading!

  8. A Feast for Crows is so epic though – all reading counts need to be destroyed for this book 🙂

  9. Haha, no – not buried in Olympics coverage my recorder is full of TV I want to watch, and it is almost full. Books come first!

  10. Yes, I am happily distracted by the Olympics. My daughter just finished Clash of Kings. She did not think she would like the series, but she is hooked.
