I did make progress this week on World Without End by Ken Follet. I have one part to go on the audio book. This was the longest audio book I have ever listened to but it has gone by so quickly. The stories are interesting and the reader is by far the best I have listened to. I am slowly making progress on Middlemarch for the group reads group over on Librarything.
I have not made any book purchases this week which makes me feel as though something is amiss in my life. I love to walk around book stores, I feel so comfortable among all of the shelves of unread books. Hopefully I will have some free time tomorrow night when I am out of town to do this.
I am still waiting my Early Reviewer copy of The Wednesday Sisters by Meg Waite Clayton. Hopefully this will come this week. I can't wait to read this one!
My book club selection this month is The Tea Rose. I am looking forward to this one as well. A few people have read it already and had great things to say about it. The last two months have not been very good as far as selections go. Last month was Honeymoon With My Brother which nobody enjoyed. Most of our group enjoys historical fiction which is right up my alley but there are a few who would rather read Danielle Steele which just does not appeal to me. How do other groups make their selections? Do you feel like some people really take time to research the book before the selection is made? I always research the book before making the selection. I want to make sure that it would be a book worthy of discussing. Others simply look online and select the shortest read which really annoys me. It may be a short read but not worth discussing.
Have a great week everyone! Happy reading!

This was not a good reading week for me due to work conflicts. I did start Middlemarch for a group reads group over on Librarything. I have to say that I was disappointed when I started it but now am at a point where I am starting to enjoy it. I was in agreement with all those who were calling it Muddlemarch.
I am about half way into World Without End by Ken Follett which I am listening to on audio. Very enjoyable so far. I hope to finish it this week as I have a long road trip to Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin for work. I will have to download a few others just in case!
I entered my first contest from Amater de Livre's blog and won The Poetry of Murder! How exciting.
I am off now to finish my last load of laundry, go for a motorcycle ride with my hubby and then hope to get some serious reading time in today. Have a good week everyone!

I have been visiting several blogs today to see how they "set" their sites up and have come across several contests and challenges. Are these contests legitimate? I understand that a blog is pretty much an online journal. Now I have to figure out how to go about searching for blogs and listing some that I have enjoyed reading.
This is going to be an adventure!
I have been reading some posts on the group boards and now see it is inappropriate to list blog lists without permission from the owner, is this true? If so then I apologize for listing your blog on my site without permission.
