It's Monday ...

Meme hosted here:

I went back to work today, so that's going to cut into my reading/lazing time significantly.

I had to take The Dream Thieves back to the library - someone else had it on hold and I hadn't finished it so on the Don't Be a Dick principle, I took it back. *sigh* I'll get it out again and finish it as soon as I can.

Otherwise, I'm nearly through Olivier by Philip Ziegler, and I'm still picking at The Two Towers.

I also picked up Jeeves and the Wedding Guest by Sebastian Faulks. I'm not very far into it but so far it does lack that Wodehouse something. Its readable enough and it's a short novel so I'll see how I go.

What are you reading?

I hope you enjoy the rest of your reads. Have a good week.

I frequently have to take things back on the don't be a dick principle - but at least we know we are considerate of other readers! You can check out my Monday here

I check out tons of books from the library. People are always asking me how I read so many books. "I don't," I tell them. "I just need a lot in order to find the best!"

Here's my It's Monday!

I haven't checked out a library book in years. I would hate to have to hand one back if I was reading it and hadn't finished. Kind of you to do so, though. Come see my Monday report if you get a chance. Happy reading!

Haha "don't be a dick on principle" made me literally laugh out loud. I don't check out books anymore just because I never know when I can truly get to a book and I will forget about it and then a year later I am like "Oh! A library book, I better return it!" I don't rent movies from Netflix either, haha. Same issue.

Enjoy the rest of your reading week!

Oh man, I can so relate about the taking a book back thing. I will admit that I have kept a few books for an extra day or two if I was close to finishing!

Have a great week and I hope you find a little unexpected reading/lazing time!

A fellow Wodehouse fan! Yes! I haven't read Jeeves and the Wedding Guest yet but I've been interested in it. I'd be interested in seeing your full review. :)

Maree said...

Mystica: Thanks! you too :-)

Kylie: It's the rule I try to live by - lol :D

Deb: Finding the best is key!

Kathy: Thanks! :D

Jamie: Heh, thanks :D

Lindsey: I would have, if I'd been close but sadly I was only about 90 pages in :(

Lois: Yes!! I love Wodehouse!! The Wedding Guest is ... interesting so far.

Hi there Maree, I have yet to finish reading The Raven Boys, but I already have a copy of Dream Thieves for review. Hopefully before the year ends I get to them both. Have a great reading week.

Martha Eskuchen said...

You know - I think I'd like to read a Wodehouse sometimes soon. Hope you are enjoying all of your reading.
Thanks for your kind thoughts visiting my blog. :-)

Myra: I'm hoping to get back to The Dream Thieves soon, I really enjoyed The Raven Boys. Thanks, you too! :D

Martha: I love Wodehouse - they're great for escapism. :-)
