It's Monday! What Are you Reading? (03-01-'11)

It’s Monday! What Are You Reading, is where we gather to share what we have read this past week and what we plan to read this week. This event is hosted by Sheila of Book Journey.

It's been a while since my last post for It''s Monday! What Are You reading. I am going to sum up all that had been happening in between.

First of all, My pet-turtles and I would like to wish yo
u all:

The book I am currently reading is The Case-Book of Sherlock Holmes. This is a re-read. I'm reading it again because I have just found the perfect Sherlock Holmes.

Here's a snippet from my review on a British miniseries called SHERLOCK
The minute I saw Sherlock I knew straight away that HE IS A BETTER SHERLOCK than anyone I have ever seen. In fact, he is the most perfect Sherlock Holmes that represents how I imagine Sherlock whenever I read the book. He is annoying, obnoxious, a pain in the butt, rude, self-absorbed, cold, & arrogant smart ass. He ignores women. And last but not least, he is annoying…ow, I’ve said that already! However pain in the butt he is…I LOVE THAT MAN!!! continue reading.
After seeing that miniseries,I wanted to re-read my Sherlock Holmes' books.

Before this book, I finished my other re-read book,The Lord of The Rings - The Return of The King (My review will be up on Wednesday) and my first Chicken Soup. Chicken Soup has never made me interested to read it, but thisone hasa strong appeal on me, the Chicken Soup I was reading is Chicken Soup for the Cat & Dog Lover's Soul.

The reason for reading that chicken soup is simple...because I LOVE MY PETS VERY MUCH. You can read my review on the book here.

The book doesn't have story of turtles, so I shared my own story with my turtles

People might think that reptiles can not think and they can’t show affection toward their owner….I have to say that those people are so wrong!! Reptiles will behave depends on how their owner treat them.

My turtles know their names and they listen to me from time to time. They are not as obedient as dog but you’ll be amazed to see that they understand it perfectly well when I told them not to go somewhere. Once when the front door was open, Kroten stepped out of the front door and I told her with higher tone ‘Kroten, don’t go outside!!’ and Kroten turned back and sat inside the house looking at the view outside the door. continue reading

After my current book, I will definitely read something by Stephen King, I really miss reading his book. I probably will read Blaze.

What are you reading now?

Those Chicken Soup animal stories are always so sad. The pets are always dying. I get depressed when I read them. LOL.

Oh, some books to read this year (for me) will include at least one J.R.R. Tolkien! For Awesome Authors Challenge.

I have another Stephen King on my stacks that I'll be reading, too. This one on your list looks good.

Here's my Monday:

I am going to read some Sherlock this year! I think it is fun that so many books are coming out now around this character.
