It's Monday! What are you reading?

I’m joining Jen & Kellee (and many other bloggers) in discussing what we are reading this week. Join us! Go to their site and link up your own blog.

Better reading week than last week. I am frustrated, though. In trying to read the Newbery winners I have been reading them in order. I have the 1932 and 1933 winners waiting on my shelf but the 1931 winner still hasn’t come in from the library. If it isn’t in this week I will move ahead. I cannot wait to get a little farther in the winners list so that some of the books are actually at my library.

Many of the books I read this week came from my trip to Anderson’s Bookshop this weekend. A fabulous independent bookstore, if you are in the Naperville area. Also, please check out my blog from yesterday – at the end you are welcome to enter the giveaway for Wonder!
