It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

Let's see.

I decided to DNF Chocolate Wars, by Deborah Cadbury. Unlike a Cadbury bar the book is just not holding my attention at all. The writing is kind of bland and the story isn't very exciting (or at least it doesn't come through that way) and with a long way still to go in the book it's time to set it aside and move on. I haven't decided which book to take up next.

Still reading Cinnamon and Gunpowder though, and enjoying it. I'm about 3/4 of the way through and its politics are showing a little more. Set just prior to the Opium Wars it's about a cook kidnapped by a pirate and their adventures. It's kind of like Sea of Poppies lite, or condensed, or something. I like it.
And yes still wading through Charlotte Bronte: A Fiery Heart. I only read a little bit each week because I read at the gym and hardly go anymore.

This week I have to continue weeding books; I have about three bags ready to go and getting rid of two of them would be great.
