What are you reading on Mondays? - June 22

I finished a challenge this week, woohoo!! And I can see progress for several others. I had started feeling like my reading was becoming a chore, but I have a number of books on my list that I've wanted to read for years, so I should be able to pull myself out of the pity pit fairly easily.

Recent completions:


Reading this week:

Eat, Pray, Love: One Woman's Search for Everything Across Italy, India and Indonesia by Elizabeth Gilbert

Middlemarch by George Eliot (this is a chunkster, so it'll be on my list for several more weeks)

Princesses: The Six Daughters of George III by Flora Fraser

Wow - you are busy! Sometimes I get so caught up with looking at the book blogs and seeing all the great things out there people are reading I get too tired to read!

Currently reading the Necklace by cheryk jarvis and hoping to post the review yet tonight.

I've heard so many different things about Elizabeth Gilbert's book.
