It's Monday, need a gift?

Normally on Monday I discuss the covers of books I'm reading, which I will do today. But first how about a little detour for a good cause?

Now what else am I reading? I've been reading The Shattering, When She Woke, and The Lady of the Rivers for a while. I put some other books at the top of the pile. It's not that they're bad books. Since I didn't have set dates for them, I've fallen behind on them. I'm just a slow reader and one of the books (The Shattering) I'm just not feeling. I wonder if I should give up on that one, but I want to know how it ends. I'm a little torn. 

November will be another heavy reading month. Soon I'll be starting Wanna Get Lucky (mystery novel. I'm a sucker for them) by Deborah Coonts. But I will also be delving into the non-fiction arena. It's been a while since I stepped away from the world of fiction. First up on the list is ....

I didn't know much about Jane Fonda before I started reading Patricia Bosworth's biography of her, but only 60 pages in I'm fascinated. Her father, Henry Fonda, didn't sound like the most chipper fellow. Her mother was also dealing with some tough demons. She seemed to have a privileged childhood, but I don't think I would want that life. This book is more than 500 pages, so bear with me.

One more book to start this week.

Chosen by Chandra Hoffman has been on my list for a while. I had an opportunity to take part in a blog tour with TLC Book Tours, and I couldn't resist. A family in peril, torn apart by an adoption nightmare. This one will have to take priority over some my other books. Why? My tour date is next Monday. Yeah I have too many books, but I think it's a good problem to have!!
