It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
Last week I finished three books: Americans' Favorite Poems, Brown Girl Dreaming, and Yes Please. I enjoyed the first two very much. Yes Please left me wanting. I think I'll save it for my review, but I pretty much got out of it what I expected. It was fine, but suffice it to say Amy Poehler and I have nothing in common.
This week I'm reading Charlotte's Web. I haven't thought about this book since it was read to me in elementary school. I seem to remember that either Wilbur or Charlotte dies, and I remember being crushed. I can feel myself not wanting to give over to the story because I don't want to experience the sadness, but White is a good storyteller, and I'm reluctantly being sucked in.
I started In Cold Blood this weekend because I just couldn't wait. And I'm loving it so far. Capote is a master at setting the scene. I'm not much for true crime, but I figured I should read this classic. Is this the original "true crime" book, I wonder?
I also started the audio of Middlemarch this weekend. This one's going to take a little getting used to. Not only am I not very used to audiobooks, but the writing in Middlemarch is quite dense and verbose.
When I finish Charlotte's Web and In Cold Blood, I'll likely start Nora Webster.
What are you reading this week?
