What are you reading on Mondays? - April 27

It's been another good week -- I'm making good progress on several of my reading challenges. The Read-a-thon always seems to give me a jumpstart. Maybe it's the residual adrenaline from such focused reading.

Recent completions:

The Complete Maus by Art Spiegelman -- review here

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

The Problem of Pain by C. S. Lewis -- I haven't written a review yet and it may not be posted right away. There's so much I loved about this book and I want to do my best to do it justice.

The Time Machine by H. G. Wells -- review here

Reading this week:

Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte -- I'm about 3/4 done with this one, so hopefully I'll finish it up this week.

Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar . . .: Understanding Philosophy Through Jokes by Thomas Cathcart and Daniel Klein

Up next:

I think Jane Eyre is probably one of my all-time fave's.
I liked it the first time I read it and LOVED it the second time. I got something completely different from it on the 2nd go 'round.

I have had #1 Ladies... on my bookself for over a year.
I need to read it already.

Your reads for this week and upcoming are all new to me books! Be interesting to see what you think of them.

Seriously, girl, how do you fit it all in? I'm lucky if I can get through the weekly chapters for the book club!! I'm so envious and hope that one day, I'll have a weekly reading list like yours..

I loved Ted Dekker's Circle trilogy, so BoneMan's Daughter is definitely on my wish list.
Happy reading :)
