What are you reading on Mondays? - July 27

Vacation time is here! We leave tomorrow and I'm so excited. I'm taking a whole pile of books with me (see Reading This Week), oh how I wish I could read in a moving vehicle. We'll be on the road at least 15 hours. Maybe I'll get some motion sickness tablets and give it a try. It makes me cringe to think of all that reading time wasted.

We won't be back until after next week's posting, so there might not be one of these posts next week, depending on my Internet situation.

Recent completions:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J.K. Rowling -- review

Sense and Sensibility by Jane Austen -- review

A Study In Scarlet by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle -- review

Toujours Provence by Peter Mayle -- review

Reading this week:


Up next:

Whatever I don't finish while gone.
