It's Monday

Your meme is hosted here: http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/

I've had a remarkably productive few days. I finished Wake by Elizabeth Knox, Wintergirls by Laurie Halse Anderson and a previously unpublished novella, The Mijo Tree by Janet Frame.

Long may it continue. :D

I'm still poking at the Olivier biography which is interesting but slow-going. Partly, I think, because the book is really heavy. I don't know if it's the way it's been bound, or what, but it's hard to hold up for long periods of time.

I've also started February's TBR challenge book, which is A Guide to the Birds of East Africa, by Nicholas Drayson. It's a novel, rather than an ornithological guide and so far so good. I read Confessing a Murder by Drayson a few years ago and really enjoyed it so I'm glad I've finally got around to picking this one up.

The Luminaries is still on my to-read radar, I just haven't had the courage to actually pick it up yet.

Also on the horizon are The Raven Boys and the Dream Thieves by Maggie Stiefvater.

What are you reading?

I haven't had the courage to pick up Luminaries either. So don't feel alone.
