It's Monday! What Are You Reading? 5.8.13

First Monday in August ~
Already the 5th of this month!

Yes, I've been reading - especially with the several current August reading challenges
[always extra motivation for me.]
Plus the fact that today's garden walk with my mom 
*

*
turned into rainshowers, so... 
I scurried home listening to this 
*
*
British narrator, Jane Lapotaire, bringing the story of the
Bennets, Bingleys and Jane Austen's imagination to life ~
*
Hopped into this
*
*
 added 
*
*
and relaxed into the world of George and Emma,
Donwell Abbey and Hartfield..!
*
Continuing my Austen in August reading via
Adam's Austen in August Challenge...
*
*
Yesterday I completed 
*
*
Presenting Darcy's perspective of reflections upon meeting the delectable Elizabeth Bennet and her not so delectable family !
An Assembly Such As This
*
Three Austen reads to date, also counting toward Nancy Kelley's
August TBR Catchup Challenge
*
and...
for all those "Reading for Review" ereads lining up,
I'm joining ARC AUGUST for reading motivation!


I know several release in August and one is due for a 
book tour in 2 weeks, so this will definitely help ...
Thanks, Octavia ;)

Looking ahead...

The Bout of Books read-a-thon is organized by Amanda @ On a Book Bender and Kelly @ Reading the Paranormal. It is a week long read-a-thon that begins 12:01am Monday, August 19th and runs through Sunday, August 25th in whatever time zone you are in. Bout of Books is low-pressure, and the only reading competition is between you and your usual number of books read in a week. There are challenges, giveaways, and a grand prize, but all of these are completely optional. For all Bout of Books 8.0 information and updates, be sure to visit the Bout of Books blog. - From the Bout of Books team
