It's Monday! What are you reading?

I had another high audio week.  This was back to school week for my three oldest children and I worked three half days in my classroom to get ready for our first day which is fast approaching.  I also got in my first 20 mile run in my marathon training.  As the date for the marathon gets closer I keep getting a little more nervous about it.  It is just over a month away now.  I have a feeling that audio books are what I am going to be reading a lot of in the weeks to come as I start teaching again and continue my marathon training.  Plus we also had two picnic/parties this weekend for the holiday so I spent a bunch of time outside enjoying visiting with others.

Finished this week:
Come Home by Lisa Scottoline (audio)
Her Amish Man by Erin Bates
The Girl Who Played with Fire by Stieg Larson (audio)
The Red Pyramid by Rick Riordan (audio)
Nate the Great and the The Lost List  by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat (audio)
Nate the Great and the Sticky Case by Marjorie Weinman Sharmat (audio)
Swim by Jennifer Weiner

Still Reading:
All Together Dead by Charlaine Harris
Sleepwalker by Karen Robards
The Giver by Lois Lowry


  1. Audio is so great for multi-tasking! We start school Tuesday!

  2. Do you listen to your audio books while you train? Great way to kill two birds with one stone!

    Have a great week of reading :)
    The Relentless Reader

  3. I will be starting The Serpent's Shadow soon. My favorite book this week was Strangers on a Train by Patricia Highsmith. Please come see what I'm reading now.

  4. A busy week for you! Our school holidays start in two weeks!

    Wishing you a great reading week!

  5. Lots of good books there, I love audio books but they always make me sleepy even if it's a particular favorite!

    Here's what I've been reading!

  6. Audio books! Haven't tried that one yet, I feel like I'm missing out on a lot. The Giver by Lois Lowry is a favorite of mine - I've read the entire trilogy and used it for a book club. Simply amazing and powerful. Hope you enjoy the rest of the book.

  7. I've never listened to an audiobook. For some reason it just doesn't seem attractive to me. Maybe I'm just afraid I won't follow the story through all the multitasking :)

  8. Back to the routine of school - yeah and ugh at the same time at my house. Great job on marathon training. I really need to start back to my running very soon. Enjoy your reads!

  9. I started putting some audio on my iPod so I can listen while I walk either on the treadmill at the gym or outdoors. It makes the time go so much faster!!! Good luck with the rest of your marathon training.

    What did you think of The Girl Who Played With Fire - I read it a few weeks ago and loved it.

    Have a great week!
