It's Monday! What Are You Reading?

I finished one book this week, Stefano Benni's Margarita Dolce Vita, a Europa Editions book from 2006. It's a coming of age story mixed with an anti-materialism message, and I enjoyed it, but it was a bit strange.
Otherwise I'm continuing on with Secrecy and The Line of Beauty. I should be finished with Secrecy this week. Not a lot to report!
I'm going to start Arimathea today, a book I bought in Ireland. It was a staff pick in several bookstores and doesn't appear to be available here. It's about an Italian artist who comes to a remote Donegal town and impacts the residents in different ways.

What about you? What are you reading? See more at

I feel like such a lightweight because I'm reading a fluffy book.

I like the sound of Arimathea and I love the cover!

Your short description of Arimathea sounds intriguing. Look forward to hearing more about that one. I'm reading Stephen King's Mr. Mercedes, which is very good!

I've been thinking about picking up Secrecy, so I'm interested to hear what you think of it! I just finished reading Murder as a Fine Art by David Morrell, which I liked but didn't love. (I was surprised to discover that the author's first book was First Blood. Yep, that's right - Rambo!) Great research into Victorian London, though.
