It's Monday. What are you reading? 12 September 2011

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.

An entire week and not a single review. In fact not a single post! What is going on?! Well I have had a rather busy week. I had a ridiculously busy work week including the need for a 13 hour day, and to top it all off I had a cold so when I wasn't working I was sleeping :) And finally, the most important of all, the Rugby World Cup started on the weekend and I was lucky enough to be down on the Auckland waterfront to experience this:

Very happy to be a Kiwi and hosting such an awesome event. If you want to check out the opening ceremony at Eden Park just before the first game you can try viewing it here in high quality: otherwise try it on youtube. They did an amazing job.

With all of that going on I read virtually nothing the whole week! But that's okay, some things are more important, like experiencing the largest fireworks display your country has ever put on :)

So this week I'll just be continuing to read The Amber Spyglass (Philip Pullman), the last in the Dark Materials trilogy. That's if I don't get distracted with some more rugby games ;)


  1. I know all about busy weeks but I was lucky to get two books done this week. I watched the opening ceremony of the rugny world cup and i thought it was really well done.

  2. The Philip Pullman books are another set of series books I've been really wanting to read but haven't yet. Soon! I need to!

    Hope you have a fabulous reading week and if you get a second stop by to see what I've been reading at There's A Book! :)

  3. I certainly understand being busy! My last month or so has felt insanely hectic. I can't seem to find any time to write my book reviews. :(

    Have a great week!

  4. Life gets in the way of reading sometimes and that is not a bad thing. Hope you are feeling better!!

  5. I didn't get very much read this week either! But there is always next week!

  6. I don't always get reviews done each week, either. I always seem to be behind in them. Enjoy your rugby!!!

    Stop by and see what I have going on this week at Always With a Book

  7. Three-quarters of what I read this week was in the form of children's picture books. Please come see what they were.

  8. I really need to finish the Dark Materials series, I have only read the first one. I really enjoyed it though; I will have to add the others to my list!
