It's Monday May 7th

This is my first participation in this meme although I have been lurking and reading IMWAYR posts from you all for quite some time :) I read so slow though (due to time, not because I'm bad at it), that I have felt that my posts would be quite redundant.

But maybe not, so I thought I'd give it a go :)

This week I finished:

I started this as an Audiobook and finished up with the print version. I didn't care for the audio at all. I did enjoy the print but was a bit "Meh" on the ending.

I am currently reading: 
This takes a brain shift after Mockingjay. I am enjoying it but having a devil of a time remembering who is who!! And soooo trying to keep the movie out of my imagination as I read. I'm not far into it yet. I may have to make notes! ;)


I've been dying to read this! It is laugh-out-loud funny but not exactly what I expected. I can't wait to get back to it each afternoon! I'm a little over half done I think.

This is the first time I've used the free Kindle reading app with a loan from our public library. This is purty slick!!

I started this as a galley but dropped the ball and didn't get it done... so I went and bought it and am finishing it. :) Hope to get back to it again pretty soon, I'm neglecting it again and not because I don't like it, I actually LOVE it!! Mostly because I don't think of myself as much of a cook and it's nice when I see other people struggle with food and win too!

Coming up:

and a WHOLE lot of other choices

Bookish things to do this week:

I've applied for a position on the local Library Board of Directors. There is a meeting on Wednesday and I hope to crash it since I don't think the position has been assigned yet.

I hope they want me!! :)


  1. oh - that's a great choice of books! Love the combination of Austen and Bryson!

    Oh - and: fingers crossed for you!

  2. Wow, you have a nice variety of books. Hope you enjoy them all. Here's

  3. Welcome to the meme! Fingers crossed for the position!

  5. I really want to read the Suzanne Collins' books. I have the first one on my Nook. Have a great week!

  6. Hooray for your first It's Monday! Good luck with the library board. :)

  7. Great choices, although Mansfield Park is my least favourite Austen book. I very recently read A Walk in the Woods and loved it, it was so funny, hope you enjoy it! The cooking book sounds interesting, I'm curious to see what you think of it.

  8. I just finished Mockingjay this past week and I actually loved it! Sorry that you didn't love it as much but hey if we all had the same opinions what a boring world this would be!
