It’s Monday! What are you reading?

I have made it back two weeks in a row!  Although not a lot has changed…  Linking up to share my progress!

I’m listening to this one.  It’s hard!

Closer to being done with this.  Ready to move on to the one below…

Currently on the nightstand, waiting for me.

This one is just okay.  About a man whose wife dies when a tree falls on their house and his grieving process.

I hope to have more reading time now that graduation is over.  I love to read in the summer (as if the season really matters) while I lay in the sun! 🙂

It’s Monday! What are you reading?

A very long time ago I participated in this weekly link up.  Thought I would give it a go but I’m sure it won’t be every Monday as my reading isn’t that quick right now.  Got a couple books going that are taking some time to “sink” in. If you know what I mean.  So if you’re interested go over to The Book Date and see what great books others are reading!

I’ve found though that visiting her can cause a rash of Challenges to take place! 🙂

I’m listening to this one.  It’s pretty good.

This one is a slow pondering type of book.  I read it on my breaks at work.

I started this one but it is a slow pondering type book too.  I will pick it up again when I am finish with the other slow pondering book.

Started this one over the weekend.  It is a light read that I will pick up at bedtime.  I don’t want to read anything that causes me to think too deep right before going to sleep.

So many books and so little time.  With this week being our Son’s graduation there is lots that we have going on.  Posts may be sporadic and reading and knitting close to nothing. 😦

My Reading Habits

I’ve always loved reading.  My old blog began as a reader blog that warped into a homesteading blog.  {{Sigh}}  another leg of my journey in this life…
I can be found on Goodreads where I often times set too lofty of a reading goal for the year.  I don’t think I have never NOT reached my goal but it leaves me stressed out.  I lowered my goal this year and of course I’m having a stellar year.
I was also involved in a reading challenge to read 100 classics in 5 years.  I am seriously falling short as my 5 year mark is July 2017.  I’m about 40 books short.   Oh well, I gave it a good shot.  Now the only “challenge” I am really in is 1 Million pages.  There is no time frame for that.  In fact I will be lucky to reach it before I die.
I just finished listening to…
It is a juvenile fiction of the fantasy/magic variety.  I’ve been trying to shake it up a little and know what my “grand-kids” might be reading.  Not a bad read.  It is book one in a trilogy.
I am currently reading…
This one was recommended to me by my sister.  It is partly to help me on my journey to Find Me.  It’s attempting to help me do what I like without caring what others think of me for it.  I’m not very far into it because my hands have been very busy with all my other activities.  I did enjoy the beginning, I just need to take some time to sit and do nothing but read for an hour.
I am currently listening to…
Book 3 in a trilogy… Not sure what I expected from these books but once I started I had to see it through to the end.  They are in the category of Fantasy/Romance.  Geez, there is quite a bit of sexual content to them.  
1,000,000 Pages status:
This year I have read 8,206 pages
Since I began this challenge in 2012 I have read 78,028 pages! (see what I mean?!)
