It's Monday! What Are You Reading ? 24.6.13

It's Monday!  What Are You Reading?
Sharing with fellow Book Journey readers and bloggers for another week..


Reading a kindle release of a YA series by Judy Baer from MN
Live! from Brentwood High
                                       A very thorough coverage of each topic the students of an innovative media class decide to cover 
- in print or  tv - 
via live interviews in their school and community.
I have read the first 3 this weekend - topics covered 
students training for emergency medical teams in rural areas,
violence in schools and community,
sexual harassment.
Great concept for  a highschool class and
for a book series!
A lot of humour as I got to know 
each of the creatively personalized characters  .
Risky Assignment reviewed
Price of Silence reviewed
Double Danger reviewed
[click title to link directly to review]
[ sorry - my internet is so ridiculously slow I can't add the other 2 !]
[Finally !- Got up early and able to add them ;)]
Another novel I'm working through for a July book tour -
Canadian author, Patricia Sands' novel Promise of Provence.

"Be prepared to fall in love with Provence! This is a story that will draw you in with its vibrancy in setting and characters. A must read for any woman with a desire for romance and travel." 
-  Steena Holmes

Pretty sure I'll be finishing that on Tuesday's flight - 2 1/2 hours of airborne reading time!
Looking forward to that getaway...
Of course, another 2 1/2 hours for the return - not sure what my reading will be then !

Next week's Monday is Canada's Birthday !! whoohoo !

which also marks the beginning of the Newest Annual Canadian Reading Challenge
for everyone interested in reading Canadian authors 
[such as LM Montgomery - Anne of Green Gables fame]
[Margaret Laurence - Stone Angel or Murray Pura - Danforths of Lancashire series]
Books featuring Canadian locations, people, characters, etc in any genre.
Stop by to say 'hi' to John who hosts this year long annual event . 
He'll fill you in on the deets at his blog Book Mine Set.
I look forward to finding your reviews listed in the monthly link list!
and in the comments.  Great way to broaden your reading and get to know new authors...
Have a fabulous week of reading in some sunshine if you can =)
I'm off for the week and will have to catch up with you after that - 
Thank you for understanding why I'm not popping by to comment on your awesome reads!!
[I'm off to meet the new man in my life =) baby grandson!]
