What Are You Reading? / Book Giveaway - Last Day

It's Monday!! What are you reading? J. Kaye hosts this weekly meme, so join in if you'd like.

I've actually read quite a bit considering I had Thanksgiving dinner for 12 and found out that my 15-year-old has two broken bones in his back two days after making the basketball team.

Here's the scoop...

Last Week:

I haven't done reviews on those two yet, but here are reviews on two other books I read last week. I loved The Education of Little Tree. What a great, meaningful book about a little Indian boy raised by his grandfather, who teaches him the ways of the world. I love books that make you think and that stay with you long after you finish them. Don't you?! Mmm, mmmmm.

A Wolf at the Table by Augusten Burroughs

The Sun Also Rises by Ernest Hemingway

This Week:

Undaunted Courage by Stephen Ambrose (about the Lewis and Clark expedition)

and either Jane Eyre or A Girl Named Zippy

I have been wanting to read Wolf at the Table for a long time. I haven't read much Hemingway, but I bet it will be wonderful. I have also heard amazing things about Undaunted Courage.

I'm a new follower.

My Monday post is here: It's Monday, What Are You Reading?

I think Undaunted Courage sounds good! Have a good week, Lynne.

Lynn, I am so sorry about your son's broken bones. Will he be able to play at all this season? I've got A Girl Named Zippy on my stack to read as well.

You did have a good week inspite of circumstances. That's terrible about the broken bones in your son's back, is he now restricted in what he can do? I hope things heal quickly but I know how devastated my son would be if he missed anything in soccer so I am sending good thoughts your way :-)
