It's Monday - What Are You Reading?

As I am new in the world of book blogging, I just discovered that Mondays are for book bloggers to post what they are currently reading. I learned about this from a great book blog called The Book Date. I have been lately posting reviews of books I just finished, but haven't talked much about what I am currently reading.

As of right now, I am listening to two different books, which is pretty normal for me. Since it is around a half hour drive to my job, and another half hour back, I listen to audio books all the time. I pretty much hate all of the radio stations in St. Louis. I have found that I have gotten too old for pop music, and I'm really tired of the oldies. So, right now I am listening to The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Society by Annie Barrows and Mary Ann Shaffer. It's a fun, epistolary novel, but I only just started it on Saturday night, so I'm not far into it yet.

The second book is also an audiobook that I am listening to via the Hoopla app on my phone while I cross stitch or journal. I am listening to A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman, one of those books I've been meaning to get around to, and finally have. Like the first book, I'm not far into it, only having just started it on Friday.

So, what are you reading or listening to this week? Let me know in the comments below!


  1. Welcome to our Monday world! When I first started blogging, this event was the first one I discovered...and that was way back in 2009. It was then hosted by J. Kaye, who is no longer blogging...and then Sheila.

    Enjoy! I loved A Man Called Ove, and also that "Guernsey" book...the title is a tongue twister.


  2. Both of those books are ones I've been interested in reading but haven't yet. My commute would let me listen to a paragraph each way so audiobooks aren't a good fit for me. You can see my week here. Happy reading!
