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.

Books Read Last Week (click on titles for review):
Time to Be in Earnest: a fragment of autobiography by P. D. James
Publish & Be Murdered by Ruth Dudley Edwards
The X in Sex: How the X Chromosome Controls Our Lives by David Bainbridge
Live or Die by Anne Sexton
Black Orchids by Rex Stout
Cordially Invited to Meet Death by Rex Stout
Out of the Silent Planet by C. S. Lewis
The Ampersand Papers by Michael Innes

Currently Reading:
The Fashion in Shrouds by Margery Allingham. Homicide with style. Among the beautiful people, George Wells's suicide was last year's gossip. But Campion stubbornly refused to close his personal books on the affair. It came down to professional ethics, a commodity rare In aristocratic circles. He had barely scratched the surface before Campion found himself vest-deep in a deadly game of cat and mouse, chasing through a maze of adultery, blackmail and espionage. All done in the world of the wealthy with the best of taste, for the worst of reasons: blood money.

Books that spark my interest:
Zorro: A Novel by Isabel Allende (need to get on this one from the library)
Lord of Misrule by Jaimy Gordon (impatiently waiting for this one to be available from the library)
