Monday’s Minutes

“Monday’s Minutes” is a weekly post in which I track my bookish life.  All book covers are linked to Goodreads unless otherwise noted.

Currently Reading:

  • Legend by Marie Lu
  • Press Start to Play ed. by Daniel H. Wilson and John Joseph Adams
  • The Andromeda Strain by Michael Crichton

Finished:

  • The Word Exchange by Alena Graedon

Total pages read this week: 454

Total books for the year: 47 of 50. The Word Exchange is such a great book!  It really helped me get through the boredom of being stuck on the couch with a messed up back for several days.  Today is the first day of Bout of Books 26.  I’ll be reading as much as possible this week, and I decided to start this morning with the audiobook of The Andromeda Strain, which I saw the film adaptation of when I was in high school (and it was already fairly old at that time).  I’m curious as to how well it holds up to time.

Total books for the year: 46 of 50. I got the new edition (Penguin Minis) of Legend so I could see how I like reading and carrying around this new, lighter format. So far, I like it. The type isn’t too small, like I was concerned about it being. I can throw it in my bag without adding a lot of weight or taking up space, but I can also put it in my back pocket if I don’t feel like taking my bag, and since it’s a physical book, I don’t have to worry about batteries. I definitely won’t buy this format for books I want to keep forever, but for books I know I’m only going to read once, they seem like the perfect option. Right now, Legend is my “bus book,” so I also started The Word Exchange.

Total books for the year: 36 of 50.  I’ve been planning the remaining the details of my upcoming trip to Florida, and I realized that I fly out on the day that #SciFiSummer begins. I’ve also been reworking my spending money budget every which way I can think of to see if I have enough money to go the “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” at Universal Studios while I’m there.
