It's Monday! What Are You Reading? July 26

This weekly meme is hosted by Journey Through Books 

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week.  It is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list.
Healer: A Novel (The Brides of Alba Series)
This week I am reading Healer by Linda Windsor.  In fact, I have it sitting here at the desk while I type in case a page takes too long to load.  I also just uninstalled then reinstalled the parental control on this computer.  The old one was corrupt.

Ah, the irony.
Displaced Persons: A Novel 
I also just received Displaced Persons which I'm considering dropping everything to read. I don't know why I am so obsessed with WWII but I am. If I believed in reincarnation, I'd swear I was Jewish once.
The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements
Last (unless I finish this, too) I am going to start The Disappearing Spoon: And Other True Tales of Madness, Love and History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements.  I know.  Science Geek.

One of these will be listed as a giveaway later this week.
By the way, I'm hiring help.  I call it a stroke of genius.  It came to me while I was talking to my parents last night.  My dad explained how he had to go to southern Idaho every summer to work the sugar beets.  He was slave labor.  It hit me that I have one of those.  An articulate slave, I mean.  My teenage daughter is going to join me by reviewing appropriate Young Adult fiction.

I haven't officially informed asked her yet, as she is at band camp.  But let's just make the assumption that she'll be delighted.  

She stays up all hours of the night reading, sits on the toilet for waaaaaaayyyy longer than is needed (she hides books in the bathroom) and writes fiction for fun.

She's a strange kid.

She's definitely mine.
