It's Monday. What are you Reading? is a weekly meme hosted by Book Journey to outline what you have been reading and what you plan to read this week.
I have almost finished The Help (Kathryn Stockett), in fact I have only a couple of chapters left so I can't wait to get home from work tonight and finish it. You may have noticed that I missed the memes I usually post on Thursday/Friday last week. I was too busy reading! I've been hanging out to read this book for ages and I finally got a hold of it at book club last week. So of course I couldn't help myself but read it straight away and put Jane Eyre (Charlotte Bronte) from my 100 book challenge off till the next book. So I'll be starting that one right after I finish. I'm a little disappointed as I have found my second hand copy has tonnes of highlighting and notes written on the pages by the previous owner which I didn't notice when I purchased it. I find it highly distracting and simply from a personal opinion I could never write all over a book, it feels too much like vandalism or something. So hopefully it doesn't become too distracting for me. I guess I've learned my lesson - always check through the pages of second hand classics!
