It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Guys, things are starting to hit home.  I'm feeling a lot of euphoria and having a mild panic attack.  Things are going to start changing very quickly in the next few weeks and, while I'm ecstatic, I'm also a bit nervous because all of the pieces haven't fallen into place yet (not that I expected them to, but I'm just not patient/capable of letting things come in their own time).  And yes, I know it's frustrating to read these cryptic posts, but soon I will tell you everything (maybe as soon as next week, if all goes well).  In the meantime, let's dive into my favorite Monday meme, hosted by Sheila!

I am on page 932 out of 1,072 of Under the Dome.  Almost there!  I'm hoping to be done tomorrow at the latest.  I actually got a lot farther than I thought I would over the weekend, so I'm pretty proud of myself.


After I finish what I refer to as "the beast" I will be starting The Help, by Kathryn Stockett.  I just picked it up at the library yesterday and am really looking forward to it.  After I finish "the beast" and The Help, I'll only have one more book to read on my Spring Reading Thing list!  And I plan to read that one curled up on the couch in my new home.  :-)


Also, in case you missed it, I finally got around to reviewing Of Mice and Men.  I'm hoping to generate a bit of a discussion over there regarding Lennie's awareness of what was happening to him at the end, so stop on by if you're interested!

I'm going to try to be a better blogger this week than I was last, but we'll see how it goes.  In the meantime, tell me what you're reading!
