Its Monday! What are you Reading? is a weekly bookish meme held onBook Journey by Sheila. It’s a great place to discuss your week in reading and see what others are reading too.
I posted a review last week of The Supremes at Earl’s All-You-Can-Eat by Edward Kelsey Moore. I loved this book!
What I’m reading now
I am finishing up A Dual Inheritance by Joanna Hershon (30 pages left)!!! I am enjoying it, but it isn’t a fast read.
What’s up next?– The 100 Year Old Man Who Climbed Out of a Window and Disappeared by Jonas Jonasson.
Synopsis-A reluctant centenarian much like Forrest Gump (if Gump were an explosives expert with a fondness for vodka) decides it’s not too late to start over…
After a long and eventful life, Allan Karlsson ends up in a nursing home, believing it to be his last stop. The only problem is that he’s still in good health, and in one day, he turns 100. A big celebration is in the works, but Allan really isn’t interested (and he’d like a bit more control over his vodka consumption). So he decides to escape. He climbs out the window in his slippers and embarks on a hilarious and entirely unexpected journey, involving, among other surprises, a suitcase stuffed with cash, some unpleasant criminals, a friendly hot-dog stand operator, and an elephant (not to mention a death by elephant).
