It's Monday-ish! (5/25/15)

It's Monday! is sponsored by Sheila at Book Journey.
I had a Monday post ready to publish, but then I finished three books over the weekend and forgot to edit and post this anyway. So, it's Tuesday, but we'll pretend it's Monday.

Last week I finished four books, Ellen Bass's poetry collection, Like a Beggar; David McCullough's The Wright Brothers, a biography of Wilbur and Orville Wright; Deborah Garrison's poetry collection, The Second Child; and Novel Interiors, home decorating inspired by classic novels. All were good; all had strong points and weak points, none were stellar.

I would have finished the audio of Malcolm Gladwell's What the Dog Saw, a collection of his essays, this morning, but my batteries ran out. Just had a few minutes left, too.
Last night I began a re-read of Shauna Niequist's Cold Tangerines. I really had trouble settling on a book at all, so I decided to read one I was sure I'd like.
I'm off work for the rest of the week. Taking time off to have a book/garage sale this Friday and Saturday. All the books are priced. I still have to sort them. And I have to price everything else, get the tables, get money for the money box, pay for the ad, embellish the signs, etc. And rain is predicted for Friday. So, we'll see if this sale is a success or bust.
At any rate, I hope to get  some reading done in the next couple days, too, between tasks.  
What are you reading this week?
