It’s Monday and while my stack of books isn’t necessarily going down (which actually makes me very happy) – progress is being made! Last week I finished reading and reviewed Homer & Langley by E.L. Doctorow. I highly recommend it… which is a huge relief! I’ve been reading a lot International literature (mostly British and European) lately and was beginning to worry about my lack of excitement over contemporary American authors.
This week will be an ambitious one. I’ll be finishing up The Alchemaster’s Apprentice by Walter Moers and am beginning Amphibian by Carla Gunn… both books I picked up at the Brooklyn Book Festival. Moers is a German author and Gunn is from Canada (see what I mean about the International lit?).
And if you read my interview at Bookduck for Book Blogger Appreciation Week you already know how much I am looking forward to Margaret Atwood’s The Year of the Flood – due out…. TOMORROW!? (Umm, I just looked that up on Amazon). Another book added to the stack.
*It’sMonday! What Am I Reading? is a meme originating from J. Kaye’s Book Blog. Please check out what other bloggers are reading here.

I’ve only read one book by Atwood…been meaning to read more. Outstanding author!
I keep seeing The Year of the Flood. It is time I read it. Happy reading. 🙂
My list is here: http://rundpinne.blogspot.com/2009/09/what-are-you-reading-monday_21.html
The Year of The Flood I think looks to be a wonderful read. I have seen this one around and think it would be one I would enjoy.
Homer & Langley caught my interest. Glad you liked it. Have a good week!
I haven’t heard of any of those books! Glad to learn about some new ones today. 🙂
