It's Monday, I'm Back, and I'm Reading!!!

I'm Back!

After taking more than a week off to take care of my mom, I'm pleased to say that she is doing well after her surgery (she fell and broke her hip on January 21st) and is beginning her rehabilitation and physical theraphy today! We still have a long road ahead of us to get her back to anywhere near normal, but she's tough and determined, and with lots of prayers and good thoughts, I think she will do just fine!

While Mom was in the hospital, I did get some reading done, but it was hard to concentrate on a book for long.  But now that things have settled down a bit, I'm hopefully back in the saddle again, and ready to read!

One of my favorite meme's is sponsored by my sweet book friend Sheila at Book Journey http://bookjourney.wordpress.com/.  It's a weekly gathering to see who's reading what!

Here's what I have lined up for this week ...

What I Am Reading Now:

What I Plan to Read This Week:

Left Neglected by Lisa Genova
The Lake of Dreams by Kim Edwards
Across the Universe by Beth Revis
The Girl in the Green Raincoat by Laura Lippman
Secrets From The Vinyl Cafe by Stuart McLean
Pictures of You by Caroline Leavitt
A Lonely Death by Charles Todd

Just Finished:

When Beauty Tamed The Beast by Eloisa James (review soon!)
Keys To The Castle by Donna Ball (review soon!)

That should keep me busy for a while!

I want to thank all my dear book friends and blog followers for your wonderful wishes and good thoughts while I was gone.  It meant so much knowing that you were thinking of  my family during this time of upheaval and I appreciate it so much!
As always, Happy Reading, Ya'll!
