It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - March 8

It's Monday! What Are You Reading is hosted each week by Bookjourney at One Person's Journey Through A World Of Books. I find this meme to be a really good way of staying on track with my reading each week.

This past week I read:
Starship Troopers by Robert A. Heinlein. Classic science fiction, this book is over fifty years old and is as good today as it was when it was first published (or so I guess. The book predates me by quite a margin).

Starman Jones by Robert A. Heinlein. Another one of his classic 1950's science fiction novels.

Rescue Ink: How Ten Guys Saved Countless Dogs and Cats, Twelve Horses, Five Pigs, One Duck and a Few Turtles by Rescue Ink and Denise Flaim. A good read, but not quite what I'd thought it would be given the title. Possible contender for "book having the longest title"?

The Serpent's Shadow by Mercedes Lackey. One of her fairytale retellings.

The Black Ships by Jo Graham. A retelling of the Aeneid. Just wonderful. My favorite book of the week I think.

What I'm reading right now:
Anthony Everitt's biography of Cicero. Not sure this is going to get finished at this point.

The Alliterative Morte Arthur and the Stanzaic Morte Arthur. This has been on my list for a while now.

As has John Boswell's The Kindness of Strangers.

What I intend to get read this week:
Labyrinth by Kate Mosse.
