It's Monday! What are you Reading February 21, 2011?

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.

Yay for another good reading week with a variety of enjoyable reads! I finished three review books and two audiobooks. I posted four reviews, two with Giveaways; the Enquiring meme post and my Sunday post.

Early last week I visited as I knew I wouldn't have time during the week. I did better than usual visiting.
These were last week's posts plus Winner posts not listed.

13, rue Thérèse: A NovelPrint:  13, rue Thérèse: A Novel by Elena Mauli Shapiro.
I just started this - only on page 40. I love how it reads. The review and review copy giveaway will post on 2/17.
Hachette Description:
American academic Trevor Stratton discovers a box full of artifacts from World War I as he settles into his new office in Paris. The pictures, letters, and objects in the box relate to the life of Louise Brunet, a feisty, charming Frenchwoman who lived through both World Wars.

As Trevor examines and documents the relics the box offers up, he begins to imagine the story of Louise Brunet's life: her love for a cousin who died in the war, her marriage to a man who works for her father, and her attraction to a neighbor in her building at 13 rue Thérèse. The more time he spends with the objects though, the truer his imaginings of Louise's life become, and the more he notices another alluring Frenchwoman: Josianne, his clerk, who planted the box in his office in the first place, and with whom he finds he is falling in love.

I got lucky and picked this one up (at Goodwill!) for my next audiobook. This is three stories so it may take a while to finish.

Audible: The audible I am listening to is The Listener's Bible NIV read by Max McLean. He is a wonderful reader. I am at Exodus 25.
