It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - April 19

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted each week at One Person's Journey Through A World Of Books. Thanks for keeping me on track with my reading each week.

I hadn't posted for the last several weeks because my reading has been atrocious! Only one book finished so far for the month of April. Here's hoping things will improve this week though.

Last week I read:
The Aeneid by Virgil, translated by Robert Fitzgerald.
Took a while to read, but it was worth it.

This week I'm reading:
The Breath of Allah by Tempest O'Rourke.
This is turning out to be a good book, and one that's ending up with an "I'd like to borrow that when you're done" list. Always a good sign, even though it's not my normal reading fare.

Non Campus Mentis: World History According To College Students edited and compiled by Professor Anders Henriksson.
Hillarious book currently available as Ignorance is Blitz. I'm finding it best in smaller doses though as too many of the anecdotes at one time leaves me cringing.

What I'm planning to read this week:
There are some intriguing books I've seen at work. Maybe one of those:
Under Heaven by Guy Gavriel Kay or The Conqueror's Shadow. If I'm too slow at reading the books I've got going right now, it may well end up being the newest J.R. Ward which is due out next week.
