It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

A weekly event hosted by Sheila from One Persons Journey Through a World Of Books to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila

A very slow week reading wise but a great week none the less. Scrapbook retreat was loads of fun as always; special 'me' time spent nurturing old friendships, making new ones, laughing ourselves silly, eating yummies you haven't had to cook yourself and creating ... basically letting the child within run free. Alaine and I look forward to our time at our favourite scrapbook place Daisy Chain Scrapbooks.

  12. Stolen is on my list to be read. I LOVE the scrapbook pages - so fun!

    I read Eat, Pray, Love a few years back and had mixed thoughts on it. I still hope to see the move as I enjoy Julia Roberts and would like to see how they do with what I thought was an "ok" read."

    Enjoy your week!
