It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading? is a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey. It's where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. It's a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list. So hop on over via the link above and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.
 
I missed last week...so here's the line-up for two weeks:

Books Read (click on titles for review):
Not in the Flesh by Ruth Rendell 
The School of Night by Louis Bayard 
The Bone Is Pointed by Arthur W. Upfield
Death in the Memorial Garden by Kathie Deviney (Read for Blog Tour--review coming Friday) 

  
Currently Reading: 
Star Trek & Philosophy: The Wrath of Kant by Jason T Eberl & Kevin S Decker (eds):
Philosophy and space travel are characterized by the same fundamental purpose: exploration. An essential guide for both philosophers and Trekkers, Star Trek and Philosophy combines a philosophical spirit of inquiry with the beloved television and film series to consider questions not only about the scientific prospects of interstellar travel but also the inward journey to examine the human condition. The expansive topics range from the possibilities for communication among different cultural backgrounds to questions about the stoic temperament exhibited by Vulcans to Ferengi business practices. Specifically chosen to break new ground in exploring the philosophical dimensions of Star Trek, these articles boldly go where no philosopher has gone before.
 
Death of an Old Girl by Elizabeth LeMarchand: Beatrice Baynes was the sort of interfering, overbearing, hateful woman a lot of people wished dead. The god-daughter she tormented wished it. The nephew she could disinherit too easily wished it. The young teacher she had disgraced wished it. A host of old Meldon School classmates wished it. But since wishing couldn't make it so, someone picked up a blunt instrument and bashed her head in.
 
 
Books that spark my interest:
A Long Fatal Love Chase by Louisa May Alcott (challenge book)
A Passage to India by E. M. Forster (challenge book)
The Finishing Stroke by Ellery Queen (Christmas-theme)
The Female Detective by Andrew Forrester (library)
Below Stairs by Margaret Powell (library)
Women of Mystery by Martha Hailey Dubose (library)

I'm a bit of Star Trek Fan but I like the later series like TNG and Voyager. Star Trek and Philosophy sounds interesting

Have a great reading week!
