This meme starts at One Person's Journey Through A World of Books!

What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I finished reading three books and formatted two ebooks. I posted two reviews and have several ready to post soon.

I only visited a few blogs early in the week and a few at the end of the week.

Kindle: Payback in Wayback by Lynda Coker
I slipped this in as a quick read. It is a nice story and easy read.
After spending twelve years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit, Corey Donovan is bent on getting a little payback. He’s headed for Wayback, Texas, the place where it all began. And who better to start with than the recently widowed Tiffany Covington. Tiffany Covington is both thrilled and afraid when she learns Corey Donovan has returned to Wayback. She’s ready to repay old debts, the question is...will Corey accept her currency of exchange?

PB: The Last Track: A Mike Brody Novel by Sam Hilliard.   
I am participating in a Pump Up Your Book Blog Tour post and review on July 23, 2010. I am half way done and enjoying the tracking detail and the suspense.

Product Description
The Last Track: A Mike Brody NovelImagine if being late meant a child disappeared forever. That is the fear that drives Mike Brody: the man you want, when the one you love is missing. Mike is more than just a master tracker. An ex-Special Forces operative, Smoke jumper, and now extreme adventure tour guide, he also possesses a unique ability to tap into the memory and emotional state of those he pursues. In The Last Track, a police detective recruits Mike to help find an asthmatic boy lost in the dense woods surrounding a dude ranch in Montana. An unwitting murder witness, the boy burrows ever deeper into the rugged terrain, fearful of being found. As Mike and a local officer search for the boy, the killer follows them. While the investigation expands, his ex-wife, a well-connected journalist, uses her contacts to unravel the truth behind the murder. Her discoveries threaten to snare them all in a treacherous conspiracy . . .

Audio CD: Private by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. I do like how Patterson has several investigations going on at once. I'll finish this by Tuesday and post the review and giveaway by the end of the week.

It nearly pushes him over the edge. Instead, Jack pushes back and devotes all of Private's resources to tracking down her killer.

As he closes in on the killer and chooses between revenge and justice, Morgan has to navigate a workplace love affair that threatens to blow the roof off his plans.
