What are you reading on Mondays? - April 20

This past weekend was the semi-annual 24 hour Read-a-Thon. This was my 3rd time participating. I completed 3 1/3 books this time -- I think I could have done better but I wasn't feel well and had difficulty making myself focus. I always enjoy the readathon, I just wish there were 2 of me, 1 to read and 1 to check out everyone else's blogs and encourage them.

Recent completions:

Bella Tuscany: the Sweet Life in Italy by Frances Mayes -- review here

I haven't written my reviews for the 3 books I finished during the readathon, but I'll have them done this week. The books were:

The Little Prince (Le Petit Prince) by Antoine de Saint-Exupèry

The Murder of Roger Ackroyd by Agatha Christie

The Rosary: A Journey to the Beloved by Gary Jansen

Reading this week:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte

The No. 1 Ladies' Detective Agency by Alexander McCall Smith

The Time Machine by H. G. Wells

Up next:

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman

Notes from a Small Island by Bill Bryson

I've enjoyed Jane Eyre many times! Notes from a Small Island is also very entertaining. He is so witty and clever.
