and those you plan to read in the coming week.
I am on a crazy mystery series reading spree. Having recently caught up with Linda Fairstein's Alex Cooper series, I decided to spend this month reading John Verdon's Dave Gurney, retired NYPD Homicide Detective, series. Currently I am reading Think of a Number and hope to start on the second book in the series, Shut Your Eyes Tight, later this week.
Last week I finished reading The Stand by Stephen King. Yes, finally! I was beginning to have my doubts about whether or not that would happen. I haven't yet sat down to compile my thoughts about the book (and the mini series), but I do plan to, so look for that post in the future.
In audio, I am still listening to David Sedaris' Me Talk Pretty One Day. After the first few essays, I was beginning to wonder where the humor everyone raved about was, but I finally came across a couple of essays in the collection that had me chuckling as I listened. Sedaris's first year experience as a writing professor was a hoot--it reminded me of my high school psychology teacher (only he had years of experience). Sedaris had his class watching soap operas while my teacher had us watch talk shows (remember Sally Jessy Raphael?). I'm not sold on David Sedaris just yet, but I'm not quite finished with the book. Time will tell.
As I got into the office this morning, I noticed Hide Me Among the Graves by Tim Powers sitting in my desk drawer, my bookmark still inserted where I last left it. It's been a couple of months at least since I last picked the book up to read. I am debating whether to continue or set it aside. It's very well written and I enjoy the book while I am reading it. I just can't seem to find the motivation to pick it up and read it. Maybe it's a mood thing?
What are you reading this week?

Weekly meme where we muse over a weekly question.
This week’s musing asks…Do you snack while you read? If so, what is your favorite reading snack?
When the clock strikes 1:30 p.m. on a week day, I search out an empty quiet office, settle in with whatever book I am reading at the time, and eat my lunch. It's my only uninterrupted hour of reading bliss. Most of the time, anyway. Occasionally I read while I eat breakfast, but only if I'm alone.
Other than that, I rarely eat--or snack--while I read. It's just not something I think about. Or it is late at night, and I am reading right before I drift off to sleep.
What about you?
