FYI ...

Just so you know, I haven't fallen off the face of the earth or anything. :) Life is crazy right now and I'm finding very little time to read, let alone write reviews.  I'm keeping pretty up-to-date with my Google Reader even though I haven't been commenting much.  Hopefully things will settle down by next week and I'll be able to be here more often.

I'm currently reading three books ...
  1. Finny, by Justin Kramon - he's coming to my book club's meeting at the end of the month
  2. The Boy Who Harnessed The Wind, by William Kamkwanba and Bryan Mealer - for a TLC Book Tour later this month
  3. Children of God, by Mary Doria Russell - this is a re-read for me and part of the read-a-long I'm co-hosting this month
And I'm listening to one book ...

  1. Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee, by Dee Brown - just because I wanted to
My plan is to have reviews of these posted within the next few weeks, and also to share my recent DNF books. And of course I want to enjoy these last few weeks of summer ... we'll see how much I can accomplish!

I hope things settle down soon! Having Justin Kramon at your book club will be loads of fun - Finny is a great book!

Justin Kramon is coming to my book club at the end of the month, too! Is it the same one perchance? (I'm in HoCoBoCo.) Anyway thanks for the update!

bermudaonion - I haven't finished it yet but I'm enjoying it so far!

Chris - How cool!!! No, it's not the same group, but it's probably the same weekend. Shoot me an email through my profile - I'd definitely love to chat with you more since you're a local. :)

Oh, I feel the same way this summer. So crazy, but so fun to spend some intensive time with my kids. I'm way far behind too - glad I'm not the only one! :-)

You're reading a lot of good books! I read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee last year and thought it was very good. The photos in the book version are amazing too!

I'm so looking forward to reading Finny. I'm actually struggling with my current read - a disaster at sea, NF - and it's just TOO TENSE already (page 12) I might just pick up Finny and start that instead.

I'm keeping up with everything BUT the Google Reader. It seems like there's always something that gets put at the bottom of the pile.

Heather J. said...

Darla D - Yeah, I love the extra time with Kiddo, but we're still ridiculously busy. :)

Alyce - I just finished that one last night and it was FANTASTIC - I can't wait to review it.

Serena - Well Kiddo was sick today and I got quite a bit of reading done ... :)

LisaMM - I know, right?!

Care - Finny would definitely be a change of pace!

softdrink - Since I can do google reader on my phone, I can read blogs while I'm waiting in line, etc. - that's the only way I'm keeping up. :)

That's a great list of books you are reading. I read Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee several years ago and really enjoyed it.

I am also on the tour for The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind, see you there.
