It's Monday! What Books Am I Reading? 4.29.13

Have all the readers survived this 24 hrDewey Read a THon ?
I made it through 21 1/2 hrs, then had to crash or suffer Sunday!

Amazed at all the mini challenges that took my interest and time!
I was having so much fun with them, my reading was waiting 
for my attention.  Which I eventually chose to focus on 
[until the next hour's challenge!]

Ahhh well.  Definitely a FuN day!

So now It's Monday! again and What Am I Reading?

I've begun Maureen Lang's 
On Sparrow Hill 
{sequel to The Oak Leaves}


Here's the plot ~
Rebecca Seabrooke is a commercial manager for Quentin Hollinworth's family manor and is focused on two things: running the best historical home in the country and forgetting about the childhood crush she's had on Quentin ever since her father worked as the valet for his family. They don't, after all, run in the same social circles! When Quentin's distant cousin Dana Martin Walker comes to visit the Hollinworth estate, Rebecca realizes she must confront some of her preconceived ideas about herself . . . and about Quentin. Dana wants to learn more about her ancestors--especially about Berrie Hamilton, who in 1852 decided to open a school for the mentally challenged. 
Maureen Lang is a seasoned, well respected author, quite capable of #2 in  this series.
Going by the solid 4+5* reviews,
 it seems I'm in for some excellent reading this week!

As to my books read during the Read a Thon, I completed 
the long read while I was fresh during daytime


then a digital read on my laptop
and finally a kindle read - great for tired eyes and scrunching up 
all comfy in my big reading chair with good lighting!



That , my friends, rounds out What I Am Reading!

I'm glad to hear the read-a-thon turned out to be a success for you! I hope you enjoy your reads for the upcoming week :-)

Nice post and good information. I belong to a Book Club up here in Idaho City. I listen to a lot of audio books, but I have about 3 digital books and 1 hardcover going. Until a book grabs me, I often skip around to keep my focus.

I also joined Goodreads which has been a great way to chart my progress, give and receive feedback.
