This is a weekly event initially hosted by J. Kaye at J. Kaye's Book Blog, now by Sheila @ One Persons Journey through a world of Books, to celebrate what you are reading for the week as well as books completed the previous week.
Those among you coming to me directly from your RSS readers, can you please confirm that you saw my post on your reader? I'm getting paranoid wondering if the feeds are going out fine, after the domain change. :)
I almost forgot about this post, with all the drama that happened here during Bloggiesta. I didn't read during the weekend at all, so I have to catch up this week.
Books completed in the last weekLeft Neglected by Lisa Genova: I have to say that I am disappointed with this book. Still Alice was one of my favorite reads last year, so it hurts to say that, but this book was dry and boring most of the time.
News from over my blog
I posted a book and movie review of Shutter Island by Dennis Lehane/Martin Scorsese.
Read about my other obsession - yeah, something not to do with books.
Bloggiesta pretty much ruled my weekend. I got a lot done over a total of 21 hours, but now I'm saturated.
Books on my nightstand
It's been a slow reading month for me. I guess it has to do with all the bookkeeping and housekeeping that January brings with it. I hope I get more time to read during the week.
Eaarth by Bill McKibben: I have a few more pages to go before I'm done with this. There was plenty of eye-popping and eye-widening moments here - I'm really glad I read this one.
The Good Daughter: A Memoir of My Mother's Hidden Life by Jasmin Darznik: I love this book so far. It's hard putting it down every time. Jasmin's writing is engaging, and the story is very riveting. I'm also loving the setting - Iran, and enjoy learning so much about this place.
