Hello book-lovers! What have you got open this week?
Like last week, I am still reading Clash of Kings. That tome is loooong. So much action though, it seems weird that we have covered so little time in so many pages.
I've been ill for a while and lost my voice so Spinky has been handling the reading. He has been reading a book a day from the Curious George phonics book set. He's been really helpful. So far they both like Fun, Fun, Fun best, because it is about juggling.
I hope you are getting more done in the literary realm this week than I have! Let me know what is catching your fancy.
PS. Come back tomorrow for a Canada Day themed giveaway!
Song of Ice and Fire is such a great series. Enjoy!ReplyDelete
I am currently (slowly) reading a nonfiction book about WWI, but want to get back to some fantasy/scifi soon..
I'm still working on Philippa Gregory's The Other Queen AND I Don't Know How She Does it by Alison Pearson. I haven't had a lot of time this week as I've got a deadline to meet. If I write a little faster there may be time for reading!ReplyDelete
I just finished Weekend by William McIlvanney and am going to something Canadian now for Canada Day weekend. I have Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town, Open Arms and Cool Water sitting on my coffee table, and am not sure which one to pick up first.ReplyDelete
I just finished (as in only few hours ago) Kate Forsyth's Bitter Greens, based on the Rapunzel fairy tale (but much deeper than just that). I've started Neil Gaiman's American Gods, in no small part inspired by your review of one of his children's books (I just couldn't get him out of my head ;p ). Xander and I are going through colour books this week to work on his vocabulary.ReplyDelete
My husband bought me 'Game of Thrones' for our anniversary last year and it's in my giant 'to read' pile, but it's so thick it keeps getting bumped for other shorter novels. I should be ashamed.
Sorry to hear you were ill. Visiting family in Toronto, so trying to minimize my surf time. For Canada Day we picked up Canada: Book of colours by KidsCanPress. Love that series!ReplyDelete
