It’s Monday! What Are You Reading?

by Notorious Spinks on 03.27.2011

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, hosted by Sheila at Book Journey, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.

I’m still reading the same books.  I especially put a dent in The Freedom Writers Diary : How a Teacher and 150 Teens Used Writing to Change Themselves and the World Around Them by The Freedom Writers.  I hope to finish it up by tomorrow.

So what are you reading?

I’ve seen most of the Freedom Writers movie, and it was very inspiring! I hope you enjoy the book as well!

I saw the movie that The Freedom Writers Diary is about. After I saw the movie I wanted to read the book, haven’t had a chance to purchase it as yet.

I’m reading Black Widow and the Sandman by L. L. Reaper. Pretty good.

How are you liking The Freedom Writers Diary? It was required reading back when I was in high school. I remember enjoying certain parts of it. Have a great week.

It’s good so far. Just amazing the things that kids deal with on a daily basis and we wonder why they act out.
Thanks for stopping by!

This looks like a great book. Teen boys, especially, need to write more. Here’s mine:

You really should check it out. It makes you really think about the situations that are possibly going on in the kids homes.

Ah, that book sounds so inspiring. I too am still reading a book from last week. I don’t think I’ll be able to finish it tomorrow, unless I stay home all day but even book lovers like us have to go out and see the sun once in a while, am I right? Have fun reading! 😀

Yessssss! It’s one of my favorites! I think I watched it on television a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy your week!

Good luck finishing your current read tomorrow! I always feel a twinge of accomplishment when I finally finish a book (maybe that’s why I try to read so many?).

I always want the book to continue if it’s good. I’ll even go back in and re-read the last chapter. LOL!
