Mondays: Mailbox/whereabouts

Monday Mailbox is hosted by Marcia, In My Mailbox is hosted by The Story Siren and New Crayons is hosted by Color Online. Check all three which are related to books you receive in the past week.

The previous week, I received four books. This past week, nothing! Maybe tomorrow, I might receive something!


It's Monday! What Are You Reading This Week? is a weekly event hosted by J. Kaye of J. Kaye's Book Blog, "to list the books completed last week, the books currently being read, and the books to be finish this week."

I finished the following:

The Lost Book of Salem by Katherine Howe

I am still in the midst of reading:

Dragon Rider by Cornelia Funke

I posted reviews of:

The Wolves's Keeper Legend by Sylvia Weber
The Lost Book of Salem by Katherine Howe


Musing Mondays (BIG)
Do you have an account with an online book database site (LibraryThing, Shelfari, GoodReads etc)? If so, do you have a preference? Do you use it for - your own record keeping? finding new books to read? social networking?

I have accounts in all three but seldom use those. Frankly, blogging takes all my time and I don't really wish to invest more time in networking. I would rather write poetry, in that time!

I hope you find lots of great books in your mailbox this week.

I use Goodreads to catalog everything. Having too many different ones going is confusing to me!! I love that you write poetry!!

I so hear you. I am always in awe of those who can manage blogging, networking, listing, AND STILL WORK FULL TIME.

Where do they find that time?! I would love to keep up with so much stuff, but quite honestly, sometimes the blogosphere seems too much.

I use Librarything to catalogue books that I want to read only because it's handy to keep a tab open while reading blogs. Yup. That's about it. :)

I hope you feel better today. You said you were poorly yesterday on my blog.

I can see your point. I really enjoy the networking myself, and am on GoodReads at least once a day.

Btw, The Lost Book of Salem looks good! I'll be looking for your review when you've finished it.
