Elsewhere on the blog:
Biz-speak clichés and jargon drove me crazy last week. My post about it is here — I’d love to hear your thoughts!
A few new (used) books this week:
What will I be reading during the coming week?
Currently in my hands:
It’s about time that I finally read Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson. And I won’t even bother trying to hide the fact that I’m at least partially inspired by watching Black Sails on TV. (Not to mention my son’s habit of singing “What Shall We Do With the Drunken Sailor”, courtesy of Assassin’s Creed on his PlayStation).
I also plan to start The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian, the February Book of the Month for Outlander Book Club.
Now playing via audiobook:
I’m almost done with my re-read of the 1st Mercy Thompson book via audiobook (Moon Called by Patricia Briggs). I really do love this series! I might do a bit of series hopping — when I’m done with this Mercy book, I’m going to switch over to Furies of Calderon, the 1st Codex Alera book by Jim Butcher. I definitely do better with audiobooks when I’ve read them before!
Reading with my kiddo:
The Expeditioners and the Secret of King Triton’s Lair by S. S. Taylor: We’re moving slowly, but still enjoying this one.
Book club reading:
Classic read: The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Emmuska Orczy. (One chapter per week)
A Breath of Snow and Ashes by Diana Gabaldon: Reading and discussing two chapters per week, from now through the end of 2015!
OBC Book of the Month for February: The Light in the Ruins by Chris Bohjalian. The discussion opens February 18th.

So many book, so little time…
