It's Monday! What Are You Reading? - Aug 10

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a place to meet up and share what you have been, are and about to be reading over the week. It's a great post to organize yourself. It's an opportunity to visit and comment, and er... add to that ever growing TBR pile! So welcome in everyone. This meme started with J Kaye's Blog and then was taken up by Sheila from Book Journey. Sheila then passed it on to Kathryn at the Book Date.

Well, August sure came in like a lion. Tropical Storm Isaias visited us Tuesday. Some residents just got power back this weekend. We still have downed trees around town, but clean up is ongoing. Other than no power and no internet, the only bad thing that happened is our arbor fell into the garden and pulled up my grape vine and squashed the tomato plants. I blogged about feeling like Charles Ingalls when he lost his wheat crop. You can read that here.

I am trying to stay caught up on reading since I have three more book reviews for August.

I finished this book yesterday. Look for my review on August 21.

These two are being reviewed the last week of August.

These three reviews are coming in September.

I would like to read these to review at my children's book blog.

After that, I am hoping to take a break from review books and focus on these.

By that time, I should really be ready for some seasonal reading material--which I never seem to get to. 

What are you reading right now? What is a book you have been wanting to read for a while, but never seem to get to it?

What a great assortment of books. Will have to check them out. Have a great week of reading.

We lucked out as far as the storm went, but so many people were hit. I'm sorry you had to deal with it. I hope all is well now.

Enjoy all those books. They look great.

I'm glad your storm damage wasn't worse - but it is bad that your garden took such a hit. I'm reading review books too this week. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

I'm on the other coast, so we're still having sunny days. It feels good to finally move a book off your TBR list, doesn't it? I have a library book I took out just before the libraries closed here, and I've been hoarding it and the libraries finally reopened so I turned all the others back in and now I'm finally reading Someone to Remember.

Thanks, Beverley. Hope you had a great day.

Thanks, Yvonne. A lot of people ended up being worse off than us, so I can't complain.

Thanks, Kathy. I guess I'm not cut out to be a farmer. :)

Yes, Beth, it does feel good to move a book off the TBR pile. I haven't been to the library since it closed. They have curbside pick up, but that's not the same as browsing to me.

Thanks, everyone. I appreciate your visit.

Oh dear that storm made havoc for you and ouch to doing that to your garden. Weather can be so annoying just when things are coming along. Hope your reading goes better!

Thanks, Kathryn. Mother Nature can be such a brat sometimes.
