It's Monday! What Are You Reading?




A weekly event hosted by Sheila from Book Journey to discuss your reading week ~ the books you've read and those you plan on reading in the coming week. Thanks Sheila :)

We finally had our camping trip; The Gorge camping ground is an absolutely  beautiful spot and we're hoping to go again at Easter time. Spent three days, relaxing, cooking on the campfire, swimming and running the rapids on rubber tubes ... lots of fun.





We've only just returned this afternoon (Monday) so I'm running a little late with my Monday post. Be sure to check out my review of BY THE KING'S DESIGN by Christine Trent and enter the international giveaway!

This week I'll have a little friend guest reviewing on my blog. Her name is Gisele, she's 10 years old and an avid reader. GiGi as she's affectionately known will be reviewing THE MEERKAT WARS by H. S. Toshack. I'm hoping everyone will make her feel welcome :)

My TBR pile is growing but I'm not sure how much reading I'll get done this week, another weekend away, this time Alaine and I are off to a scrapbook retreat. Busy, busy :)

  3. That bread looks delicious and I am sure it tasted even more so slow baked on the fire.

    Have a great week.
