What are we reading today?

Wow! It's Monday already? Last week, I finished "An Echo In The Bone" by Diana Gabaldon, so I'm only continuing with the other 3 books this week: "Nefertiti" by Michelle Moran, "The Hobbit" by J.R.R. Tolkein, and "Fortunata and Jacinta" by Benito Perez Galdos. I have to push ahead on "Nefertiti" since I have to have it finished by January 27th for our book club. I'm about halfway through it. It's an easy read - except when I read by the fireplace which puts me to sleep. Bilbo and his friends have just been abducted by the goblins that came out of the crack in the back of the cave...and I'm sorry to say that "Fortunata and Jacinta" has been neglected a little. I will get back to it though. There are others who read as slowly as I do, right? Well, I'm just enjoying myself and the variety of books I'm being exposed to through reading challenges. I'm having a GREAT TIME! Thanks to all of you who are hosting challenges. Maybe someday I will be brave enough to host one myself!

  1. I am really a granny reader. I read very slowly. The only reason I read so much is I stopped watching TV and I read for like four to six hours a day.

    Have fun!

  2. I loved Nefertiti, her second book The Heretic Queen was even better! Enjoy your books :)

  3. Have not read Michelle's books yet. I am holding off on reading Echo until I am caught up with listening to the series. It's killing me though.

  4. I've been looking for a book to listen to, but I haven't decided which one I want yet. That must be fun.
