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. I love this meme ... thanks Sheila!

Scrapbook camp with old friends and new was an absolute hoot ... lots of laughs made up for the severe lack of creative mojo :)
