It's Monday! What are you reading?

I haven't done this meme for ages!!! Hosted here:
Right now, I'm working my way through The Wind-up Girl by Paolo Bacigalupi. I'm about half way through and I  have to say, it's a very interesting read. Rather grim, and dystopic but very good. 

 I'm also still plucking away (slowly) at the van Gogh biography that's the same size as my head - lol.

I've just rearranged my bookcases and the one neares my bed is my TBR for the year. Hopefully. It's largely unchanged from last year, so we'll just have to see how well that goes ...

Also on the agenda is IQ84, which I'm planning to start on Saturday for a co-read with It's a BIG book, but I'm on holiday until January 25 so ... bring it on! :D :D

Good to hear that The Wind-up Girl is not a let-down, it's on my tbr list as well ;)
That's a clever thing to do, rearranging your book case like that! If the contents of your tbr list hasn't changed that much in a year's time, perhaps some books are simply destined not to be read or finished? I banished a few of my list to the dnf-list and don't regret that decision.
I've heard that people have mixed feelings about 1Q84, so I'm curious how you'll like it.

:) Rearranging your book shelf is a big deal. Makes you feel like you've accomplished a lot doesn't it? Always fun to get some new reads out in the open too!

Happy 2012!

I need to be on holiday until late January if I'm going to finish 1Q84! It's due back to the library next week and I'm only a few chapters into it.
