Weekly wrap-up: number twenty-six

The weekly wrap-up is my way of keeping my loyal readers informed of my bookish activities and holding myself to my bookish obligations. The questions may change slightly depending on the week.

Q: What are you reading right now?
A: The Cypress House by Michael Koryta

Q: Why are you reading it? Business? Pleasure? For review?
A: I'm reading it for pleasure. I'm trying to read this and my ARC of The Ridge before seeing Michael Koryta in Indianapolis next Tuesday.

Q: What have you read since the last weekly wrap-up?
A: The Jefferson Key by Steve Berry, A Hard Death by Jonathan Hayes, Lost in Shangri-La by Mitchell Zuckoff

Q: What do you plan to read next?
A: The Ridge by Michael Koryta

Q: Why do you want to read it?
A: Like I said above, Michael Koryta will be in Indianapolis for a reading next Tuesday. I'd like to at least have a start on his newest novel before the event.

Q: What books did you acquire?
A: Purchased: A Dance at the Slaughterhouse by Lawrence Block, Old Bones by Aaron Elkins, Three Complete Novels by Elmore Leonard

Q: What bookish places did you go to?
A: I went to a used bookstore in Stevensville, Michigan with my parents last weekend.

Q: What bookish events are you planning to attend?
A: I'm leaving this afternoon for Chicago and the 2011 Printers Row Lit Fest. I'm most excited this year about meeting Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters.


  1. I'm jealous that you're going to the Printers Row Lit Fest :)

    Also, I just found out that Koryta lives in Bloomington half the year...who knew?!

  2. @Kat P

    I know! We're lucky to have him as a local author. Did you know he's going to be at the Barnes & Noble on 3rd on Monday? (Koryta Tour Dates
