It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - October 26

This is the Monday meme hosted each week by J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog. Looking at it, there are times when I feel a bit amazed, going "How can one person read that many books in a week?". Especially when I've only read one or two books, like this week.

Books completed this week:

Be #1 on Google by Jon Smith. Yes, I finished it, but I'm not reviewing it until I've tried out a few of the suggestions in the book.

Books I'm currently reading:

The Fiery Cross by Diana Gabaldon. Yep, this one is still going strong. On the other hand, I should finish it this week, as the bookmark is well and truly past the half-way mark.

Books I intend to read this week:

One of the following list:
  1. Lady of Sherwood by Jennifer Roberson
  2. Lady of The Glen by Jennifer Roberson
  3. Lady of the Forest by Jennifer Roberson
  4. Confessions Of A Radical Industrialist by Ray Anderson

I haven't participated in this meme for that very reason. I am lucky to finish one book a week these days! With my schedule right now one book can sometimes take me two (or even more!) weeks. Last week was a rare week for me when I finished and managed to review two books.

I did start participating in The Sunday Salon a couple weeks ago though so I'm using that to do a recap of my reading as well as talk about other things reading and blog related.

I haven't read any Diana Gabaldon yet but she is on my ever expanding to read list.

Okay, you have me curious about Be #1 on Google!

Roberson is one of my favorite authors -- I read a lot of her books a few years ago -- I should read some of her books again -- she has a wonderful style that I enjoy.

Thanks for stopping by, Angela. I know what you mean about books that take a while to read. I find it depends on the book and the author.

J. Kaye, you'll just have to wait and find out :)

Marie, she's one of the authors I'm mixed about. I enjoyed the Tiger and Del books, but these ones I've had for a year and they haven't exactly jumped out at me.

Well, I know it's Thursday. What can I say, I'm a little behind! Am reading a fun sort of chick lit book with a spiritual bent, "Mystic in a Minivan" by Kristen White. This mom of 3 young kids was inspired to tell a story (of a woman who has the seemingly great life that implodes on her. How many people do we know that has THAT happen to them? I can count more than one, that's for sure). Her book is the result of her own spiritual practices and growth. She uses many of the tools in the book -- it's transformed her life!

And I'm about to start a memoir, about a Unitarian minister in Maine. A friend recommended it.
