It's Monday! What Are You Reading? March 5, 2012

This meme starts at Book Journey!

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'm not quite sure why I was short on reading this week only completing two. I do have three in progress though. And I did get five reviews posted with two Giveaways.  I also posted my regular Friday Pick Giveaway, Saturday Sharing Beyond Books and the Sunday post. 

Thank you to the nice people who visited me last week. I got to visit back on Thursday night.
These were last week's posts plus a Winner post not listed.

I am excited to read another in this series.
This is already "snarky."
 I am highlighting the Project Enterprise series this week.
Product Description
With hearts and lives on the line, a kiss may be all they have time for...
Time has dumped Ashe on a dying planet and she needs to figure out why before she ceases to exist. Or gets vivisected by some Keltinarian scientists. Or worse.
Vidor Shan might help—since someone somewhere is trying to hose him, too—if she can convince him to trust her. Probably shouldn’t have told him that only someone he trusts can betray him. Also wouldn’t mind if he kissed her on the mouth.
Vid would love to kiss the girl, but his brother is lost, he’s got hostile aliens on his tail, and the stench of betrayal all around him. Can he trust the woman who told him to trust no one?
Then a time quake hurls them to a nasty somewhere and some when...

4. eBook/Kindle 

by Karen Wiesner
New release I am reading for the author.
Small-town girl Ayodele "Della" Flynn lives in a city she abhors, where danger seems to be lurking around every corner. When her husband dies very unexpectedly, she's confronted with figuring out where her home is with her young son River and trying to come to terms with the loose ends her husband left their lives in.

5. Kindle/NetGalley

Review and Author Guest blog to post on 3/15.
I will be reviewing this for Sourcebooks.

Sir Jacques Dragonet will give his life to defend Scotland from the English. He can't stop himself from admiring the beautiful Highland lass who wields her weapons as skillfully as he does, and endangers his heart even more than his life...

I am again listening to The Listener's Bible NIV read by Max McLean. 
[Reading and listening on my new MP3.]
Instead of studying with the Tyndall One Year Bible this year I am studying with Through the Bible in One Year by Alan B. Stringfellow. It is a Study that I used for teaching back in around1989 so I will enjoy it again.  This week is 1st Samuel.

Line Edits: As soon as reports are finished I will be back to continuing to work on print releases and making special arrangements for a children's book.

I have finished three carry overs from February and caught up the week of reviews.
I still have 14 books to read and review for March so it is going to be another busy month.

  1. I think you did fantastic - I am in a slump that I need to get out of ;)

  2. Sometimes that happens. I've had slow reading weeks, months and sometimes even years.

    My daughter convinced me that she needed her own library card. Please come see what I'm reading.

  3. The Snow Child is the one I am looking forward to. You have a busy week ahead but I am sure you will swing through it with ease!

  4. The Snow Child sounds lovely!

    Wishing you a great reading week!

  7. The Snow Child is really good!!
    I am trying to add more romance to my reading and you have given me a couple of good ones to check out.
