A weekly meme hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey.
I skipped a post last Monday as my progress was identical to the previous week. This past week: progress!
Read This Week: (1)
The Stand- Stephen King (A)--review coming soon
...and 3 DNFs! Here's why that happened.
Currently Reading: (3)
The Count of Monte Cristo- Alexandre Dumas--off to an awesome start; definitely influenced The Shawshank Redemption, my favourite movie :)
U2 by U2- Bono, the Edge, Adam Clayton & Larry Mullen Jr. (a.k.a. U2)--fun!
My Life- Bill Clinton--I won't "DNF" this...probably won't finish until into 2012 :)
Reviews This Week: (2)
A 2-in-1 post for Born Standing Up by Steve Martin & Me Talk Pretty One Day by David Sedaris.
I'm just behind by 3 now :)
Next to Read:
I'll probably finish off the Back to the Classics challenge (my last one!) with my replacement 20th century pick, The Old Man and the Sea by Ernest Hemingway. Wish me luck :)
Other Bookish News:
I went with a friend of mine to see The Ides of March with George Clooney & Ryan Gosling (also a great supporting cast of Paul Giamatti, Philip Seymour Hoffman & Evan Rachel Wood). It was quite good, full of political scandal and intrigue. I recommend it...and having two smokin' hot leading men doesn't hurt, either ;)
After the movie, we stopped off at the Indigo bookstore and I couldn't leave without snapping up at least 1 book. I chose We Need to Talk About Kevin by Lionel Shriver (who, until news of the movie version came about, I thought was a man....oops!). I also got the super fun musical Singin' in the Rain on DVD for just $10 (for me) and an early Xmas gift for my dad.
Have a great reading week!
