It's Monday: What Are You Reading


Is the weather as cold everywhere as it is here?  They are supposed to get snow about 50 miles north of us, but no snow in New Orleans.  I hear it raining and it just feels cold even in the house.  On the positive side, the Saints won today WHO DAT!  

We took down our Christmas stuff and I put up a few Mardi Gras decorations.  No parades this year.  

Reading?  Oh, that.  Most of my reading time this week has been spent reading Fundamentals of Louisiana Notarial Law and Practice.  Quick review:  Dry as dust, full of big words, very repetitive and not exciting at all.  Nevertheless it is the book I have to know if I want to pass the Louisiana Notary Exam in February, which I have decided I do want to do.  

My book of the year this year is going to be the Bible and I wrote a post comparing two podcasts I listen to:  Do You Prefer Your Bible Fast or Slow  In the fast podcast, several chapters of the Bible are read each day.  On the slow one, several days can be spent on a handful of verses.  

I'm in the middle of two books:  California Girls by Susan Mallery and Those Who Save Us which is about a young woman in Germany during WWII and a middle-aged woman in the US in the 1990's.  I'm enjoying them both. 


  1. It’s been raining here but it’s summer so it’s horribly humid!

    Wishing you a great reading week

  2. Today we are the opposite of cold. It's the hottest day of the summer so far, but the last week has been very strange weatherwise.

  3. We've actually been warmer than normal for this time of year. Temperatures are in the 20s above zero instead of below zero. I saw the Saints game and wish them well moving on. Come see my week here. Happy reading!

  4. It's been raining pretty much every day in the Pacific Northwest, but we're used to it. On the upside, it hasn't been overly cold--so I can't complain.

    I'd love to see your Mardi Gras decorations!

  5. Sunny, chilly. A great winter day in Delaware. Decorations down, gardens will be mulched this week if it doesn't snow.
    I am reading lots of first pages of favorite books as I pack them away for our move in a few months. I pulled out a Phillipa Gregory and an Austin to read for the short period while I wait for some titles from the library to become available. Comfort reading :)

  6. It's been cooler than usual here, but still nice.

    I love Susan Mallery's books. I hope you have a great week.
