It’s Monday, what are you reading?

This meme is hosted by Sheila at Book Journey.

Oh my goodness gracious – reading how much I’ve missed you!  These last few weeks at school have had me reading nothing but Linguistics textbooks, articles on Feminist critical theories and all sorts of poetry from names like John Donne and Andrew Marvell (Oh, and I memorized a Shakespeare Sonnet in that time too!).  But now I’m determined to get back on the wagon because, frankly, I’m SO BEHIND! Thank goodness for Thanksgiving break!
