What are you reading?

So, what are you reading this weekend? I'm finishing up two books. I'm reading Edith Wharton's The Age of Innocence for a book club on Monday night. And, I'm finishing Mike Greenberg's All You Could Ask For for a blog tour on Monday.

When I finish, I'm reading Hank Phillippi Ryan's new book featuring Boston newspaper reporter Jane Ryland. I'm looking forward to reading The Wrong Girl.

What's your weekend reading? And, out of curiosity, are you reading a book in paper format, ebook, or audio? Whatever it is, I hope you're enjoying it.

I just finished listening to the audio version of The Wrong Girl and loved it. Next up, I'm listening to The Whole Enchilada by Diane Mott Davidson.

I am reading The Prince of Tides, by Pat Conroy.First time I have read any thing by this author. This copy is in paper back from the library. I have always loved the library since childhood.

Just started reading The Street Sweeper by Elliot Perlman (one that I've been meaning to get to for awhile now...) and I'm listening to Plain Truth by JodiPicoult.

Just finished David Rosenfelt's Open and Shut. And have started Vicki Delany's In the Shadow of the Glacier. Looking forward to catching up to both author's current books in the series.

Waiting for my local library to purchase the new Jane Ryland series.

Thanks so much for sharing what you're reading! Mason, I just finished The Wrong Girl. Terrific, wasn't it? And, Charlotte? Like you, I've loved the library since childhood. Thank you for saying that.

TFJ, The Wrong Girl isn't due out until Tuesday, so hopefully your library will have it soon. Enjoy your other books!

My Kindle is currently showing The Apostle by Brad Thor. This is a re-read for me and I'm enjoying it more this time around.

I'm reading How the Light Gets In by Louise Penny in audio format. It's terrific.

Mrs. Mac, I'm glad you're enjoying the book more the second time around. Reine, I loved How the Light Gets In! A very special book.

I started reading HEARTBROKEN by Lisa Unger last weekend. It's not at all what I expected, and I'm very disappointed. I read another Unger book and was very impressed with it. But HEARTBROKEN is different, much like what I sometimes read when I was in highschool. That was more than 30 years ago. This doesn't feel very adult to me.

I am reading and always read paper books.

I am reading the 1st Emily Ashton--And Only to Deceive by Tasha Alexander. I am reading it on my Nook, I love e books from the library...instant gratification even when you didn't make it in to pick up a new stash before closing on Saturday!

I am reading an e-book, Murder by Syllabub and just starting A Dog Named Boo (about a therapy dog).

Interesting comments about Heartbroken, Techeditor. Thank you. Once in a while I read an e book, but only if there's no other way I can get it. I prefer paper.

Lesa said...

That's true, Ivy. You don't have to worry about when the library is open. Thanks, Carol. I'm always curious as to what others are reading.

I'm reading 2 books on kindle: Boundary Waters by William Kent Krueger and The Golem and the Jinni by Helene Wecker. Am loving them both. As soon as I'd finished Iron Lake, the first in Krueger's Cork O'Connor series, I ordered the second. I enjoy his writing style, the strong sense of place (northern MN) and Cork's struggle with personal issues while solving the crime. I ordered the Golem and the Jinni because I thought it might make a good book club suggestion. Two fairy tale-type characters suddenly find themselves in turn-of-the-century NYC. How they meet, cope with their loneliness living amidst the Jewish and Syrian immigrant communities, and try to keep the secret of their true natures from being discovered is very compelling.
