What are you reading on Mondays? - October 19

I'm in a complete reading slump this week. I haven't picked up a book since last Wednesday. There's still at least a dozen books I need to finish for my challenges but I'm seriously doubting whether that'll happen. I've let the challenges become a chore and I'm not enjoying my reading very much these days, but I hate to quit a project, especially for those that I'm so close to finishing. Maybe if I read something just for fun and cleanse the mental palate (so to speak), then come back to the others? It's an idea.

Recent completions:

Zip, zilch, nada.

Reading this week: (maybe)

Mere Christianity by C. S. Lewis

The Three Musketeers by Alexandre Dumas

Up next:

Too soon to tell.

Can't say I've ever read The Three Musketeers....watched several versions of the movie though.
