It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? #Readathon Edition

By Joyweesemoll @joyweesemoll

I had such fun on Saturday with the spring version of Dewey’s Read-a-thon:

Rick and Joy at Phil's wedding reception

On the deck of Chandler Hill Vineyards, wedding reception

We went to the wedding of Rick’s nephew on Friday night, so it was quite the weekend! It’s a little hard to remember what happened earlier in the week. Maybe a list will help:

  • Photos of the vegetable garden, 2014
  • Words to describe the rhymes in poems
  • Top ten characters who live in London
  • On again, off again, exercise


TransAtlantic by Colum McCann was my review post for British Isles Friday last week. We had poetry, photos, and other book reviews — including a book by a Scot arguing for Scottish independence in the referendum that will be happening this September.


Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson

Quiicksilver means mercury.

I’m still reading Quicksilver by Neal Stephenson. I hoped to finally finish this during the Read-a-thon, but I spent too much time cheering.

My evening book, right now, is The Madness Underneath by Maureen Johnson, a fun addition to the series that began with The Name of the Star. I love the descriptions of London!

On my phone, I’m reading another book set in London, but this is alternate history with vampires and werewolves during the Victorian age: Changeless by Gail Carriger.

Will Read

Rick started reading Newton and the Counterfeiter by Thomas Levenson, so I may just let him tell me about it and move on to something else. I’d like to make more progress on Clockwork Universe by Edward Dolnick, but I probably need to start our next book club selection: Sugar in the Blood by Andrea Stuart.
