It's (Almost) Monday! What Are You Reading?

It's Monday! What Are You Reading, a bookish meme hosted by Book Journey, 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. So hop on over to Journey and join in...and leave a comment here so I can check out what you are reading.

I'm jumping in a little early...I anticipate a busy day tomorrow. Here are mine:

Books Read Last Week (click titles for reviews):
Lay On, Mac Duff! by Charlotte Armstrong
The Conference of the Birds by Jean-Claude Carriere & Peter Brook (based on the poem by Farid Uddi Attar)

The Woman in the Woods by (Charity) Lee Blackstock
Hanged for a Sheep by Frances & Richard Lockridge

You amaze me. Not only do you read so many books in a week, but also not easy reads. When I take that big step out of my comfort zone, I'll be asking for your suggestion as to which one I should try.

I have Gilgamesh on my TBR pile. Not listed in my post are the ton and a half of peer reviewed journal articles I read. Here's what I'm reading this week.
