It's Monday! What are you reading?

I found this blog meme at Book Journey and thought I would join in!  Since I am pretty much ALWAYS reading something! 

It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?

I was looking through books on my Nook last night to find something new to start reading.  I have several Terry Pratchett Discworld novels on there I haven't read yet, but since I have read like 7 of those already this year, I kind of wanted something different.  Neil Gaiman? Hunter S. Thompson?  Chuck Palahniuk?  While these great authors are certainly considered Classics in my mind, I decided I wanted something really classical.  Something I should have read, because it's considered a Classic.  So I browsed through my Classic book collection.  Emily Bronte'? neh. I tried reading a few pages of Wuthering Heights, which I read in High school... but I just wasn't getting into it.  Back to the Nook library.  A Tale of Two Cities, Charles Dickens.  Hmm... maybe?  I hang my head in shame when I say this; I have not read this novel before.  So what the heck, I will give it a try.

The first chapter; pure magic.  Dessert for my eyes, a magnificent treat for my brain.  Yes, yes!  Give me more!  I am really going to enjoy reading this, I can tell already.  And I've already chosen what book will be next on my reading list.  Just in time for the Holidays... after A Tale Of Two Cities, I shall read A Christmas Carol!

I would love to know what my followers are reading!  Leave me a comment and tell me what you are reading right now!  And check out It's Monday!  What Are You Reading? To see what other bloggers are reading right now too!


I should actually be getting ready for work right now.  But before I go, just a quick family update!  We are all excited about our upcoming family vacation!  We have never taken a family vacation before, and thanks to the generosity of my parents, we are finally able to do so!  So, there might not be many blog posts this week, I just wanted to take the time to wish you all a very HAPPY THANKSGIVING!


  1. That's a good reading tale itself about arriving at the Tale of Two Cities. I happened to read a modern adaption of A Christmas Carol last month, but your classic notes make me think of trying the original.

    Have a lovely reading week ~~ here are my reads:

  2. I set myself a goal to read a book amonth in 2012 and have succeeded by two. Yay! I read mostly non fiction. I am reading 'Stalingrad' and 'The Organised Student' at the moment. And I track my progress through 'goodreads'. I have never read Dickens either but I love the Muppet Version of A Christmas Carol...hehehe.
