What Are You Reading? was first hosted by Sheila at Book Journeys. If you’d rather follow folks who are reading books for grown ups, you should follow her Monday meme. I am participating in the kidlit version of this meme (although sometimes I actually read books for grown ups).
In Print: Finished Close to Famous by Joan Baur last week. LOVED this book. Would be a great book club selection for upper elementary students, I think. You could serve cupcakes at your book club meeting! I am currently reading OCD: A Love Story by Haydu. I can relate to these characters a little more than I’d like to admit! Loving this story.
Listening to: The Interestings by Meg Wolitzer Last week I said I was having a hard time getting into this one…I blamed it on the person reading it, since I am listening to it. I am totally over that now and it has become one of those books that I hate to leave my car, because I want to hear more of it! A story about a group of friends who meet as teens at a summer camp. The story is about their lives growing up. No vampires, no crazy action or crime, just kind of a slice of life about a group of friends. I am really liking it now…I understand all the buzz.
Other: I am also catching up on a stack of magazines (both gossip and professional), re-reading materials for a class I am teaching at USC, and reading whatever else I WANT to read…I’m on break! Time to catch up!
