It’s Monday! What are you Reading? is a meme started by Book Journeys. The folks over at Teach Mentor Texts and Unleashing Readers have given it a children’s/YA spin. I thought it would be a fun way to recap last week’s reading and give a sneak peek of my TBR pile.

This edition is short and sweet as my internet service at home is sketchy–even after Comcast came out and replaced a bunch of stuff yesterday 😦
Last Week’s Books:
I finally got through this one. I know lots of people have enjoyed it, but I found it to be almost too detailed for me. It is certainly a thorough account of the investigation, capture, trial, and execution of Adolf Eichmann. So I would definitely recommend it to someone who needed information on that topic or who had a keen interest in the Holocaust and its aftermath. I just wouldn’t necessarily think of it for someone just looking for an engaging informational text.
This is a solid middle school title.
And not just for sports fans.
And very inspiring.
This Week’s Books:
I *think* this is causing quite a stir, but I have been hiding my head in the sand until I finish it myself.
