What I read and posted about reading over the last week is pretty well covered in my Saturday Banned Book Week Wrapup post.  So I won't  repeat it again here.  I will just talk about what I've been reading since Saturday and what I plan to read in the next week.
Twilight Series:
I'm 2/3 thru New Moon

Since Saturday I've continued reading New Moon the second book of the Twilight series and reached page 362 before my eyes quit on me in the wee hours this morning.  Can you believe I had to quit in the middle of the scene where Belle jumps off the cliff?!!  And haven't picked it up again yet because I knew I would get nothing else done today if I did.

I have 40 odd items out of the library but most of my reading over the last week for BBW were from books without due dates either owned by me or like the Twilight series borrowed from friend or family.  I hope to return to chasing the due dates this week but I don't think I'll set aside Twilight now that I've started it.  And as my sister pointed out to me they are after all borrowed as well and my poor niece has been waiting nearly two years!  Getting them read and returned to her will also free up premium space on my shelves!

A Prayer for Owen Meany
by John Irving
I will probably take a short break from Twilight after finishing Bk 2 tonight as I want to try to read and review A Prayer for Owen Meany for Wordshakers this week.  I ordered it from the library several weeks ago but won't get  my hands on it until after midnight tonight when my husband gets home from work.  He was stopping to pick up library holds on his way to work this afternoon.

Another novel I hope to get back to ASAP is East of Eden which I started last week the same day I started Twilight and went back and forth for awhile and then settled down with Twilight because I needed an easy, light read to counter all the serious, heavy stuff I was encountering in Chaucer,Milton, Boccaccio, Aristophanes and Whitman.  Like mentioned in one post, sometimes it felt like I was reading algebra.

And of course I will continue to browse among all the fable/fairytale/myth items both owned and borrowed as my obsession with them has not let up.
