Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about keeping books. Do you keep all the books you ever buy? Just the ones you love? Just collectibles? What do you do with the ones you don’t want to keep?
It’s Monday, What are you reading?!
A weekly event hosted by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books to discuss your reading week ~ the books you’ve read and those you plan on reading in the coming week.
I have started a number of books and am in the process of reading them ALL – which really means that I am into a lot of books and there is no progress going on at all 🙂
So here is a LIST of books that I have going on right now –
After Daddy-Long-Legs by Jean Webster, I went ahead and downloaded this book from the Internet. This one is a collection of short stories all featuring Peter- the upper groom at Willowbrook and chronicles his life there. Through the stories we see how Peter changes from a carefree, irresponsible young groom to one with multiform anxieties, how his priorities change and how his outlook towards his friends and employer change.
It is a fun book and totally different one from Daddy-Long-Legs!
There are couple of books that I did start, but where left in between due to lack of enthusiasm – I will pick them up eventually, hopefully 🙂
Last week I received 2 books in my mail and I started reading –
The hero, Zan–Gah seeks his lost twin in a savage prehistoric world, encountering suffering, captivity, conflict, love, and triumph. In three years, Zan–Gah passes from an uncertain boyhood to a tried and proven manhood and a position of leadership among his people. Themes: survival, cultures, gender roles, psychological trauma, nature’s wonders and terrors.
Initial thoughts – A good YA novel. It was given the Eric Hoffer Award for Excellence in Independent Publishing!
I have a signed copy 🙂
Inside the book there are lot of recommendations and some of them are from teens of 13 – 15 year old and there moms – I really like that 🙂 ! Now if I was a mom of a teen and see these sweet recommendations, I would definitely pass this on to him/her without thinking of reading it – won’t you?!
So what’s up for you this Monday?!
