What are you reading this week?

Any plans for the next book?

I'm finishing up Erak's Ransom (John Flanagan) and also giving The Jane Austen Marriage Manual (Kim Izzo) another attempt. So far both books are getting better right at the point I had stopped reading them!

After that, I'll either read a Karen Witemeyer book that's on hold at the local library or a non-fiction book by Jennie Allen, whichever appears first. I also have plenty of ebooks if I need more reading material. :)

I am reading The Real Macaw by Donna Andrews. Next up will be Starting Now by Debbie Macomber or the fourth book in the Newpointe 911 series.

I'm thinking of starting The Pemberley Chronicles (Rebecca Ann Collins) for my next ebook read. It was mentioned in a review of another Jane Austen "sequel," as a better alternative to the book being reviewed! In the meantime, The Jane Austen Marriage Manual is kind of interesting, but it doesn't have enough Jane Austen! ;)

I am reading "The Last Time They Met" by Anita Shreve. I have read a couple of her other books and she is a great author. I am doing a lot of sitting while I wait for 2 of my kids who are in a community play so I'll probably read it fast!

I may skip ahead in The Jane Austen Marriage Manual and see how it ends. I'm disappointed that even at a discounted $6 price, this book isn't as intriguing as others that capitalise on all the Jane Austen love among readers these days. ;) I'll probably pass it on to my mum in case she has more patience for it, then it can go to the library as a donation. (I would consider selling books to the used store near here, but only get store credit. If I want to reduce my print collection, credit doesn't help! LOL)
