It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? 2.11.13

Well, It’s not Monday {yet}!
but probably will be by the time I get this post ready!
sooo..
What Am I Reading?
I’m at the 10th chapter of Alexa Adams
‘First Impressions’
“In Pride and Prejudice Fitzwilliam Darcy begins
his relationship with Elizabeth Bennet with the words:
“She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me;
I am in no humour at present to give consequence to young ladies
who are slighted by other men.”
What would have happened if Mr. Darcy had never spoken so disdainfully?
First Impressions explores how the events of Jane Austen’s
beloved novel would have transpired if Darcy and Elizabeth had danced together
at the Meryton Assembly.
 Austen’s witty style is authentically invoked as we journey from Longbourn to Pemberley.”
{from the book cover}
 And that is what I’m in the process of discovering ~ quite enjoyably !
In fact, a perfect Valentine Romance Read !!
One more completed in the Jane Austen P+P  200 Challenge !
Another great discovery has been the interactive journal set from 
author and speaker, Graham Cooke, founder of
Brilliant Book House.
I’ve just completed the book part and now moving into the
interactivities part.  
Perfect way to learn when I have to put brain + creativity into gear!
Here’s the one I’m working on currently –
Some definite essentials when Life is, shall I say, a bit overwhelming?
Nothing like new perspectives on old routines…
Double Dipping on this read!
For Reading Scotland Challenge, my 6th book ~
which also qualifies for 12th of Canadian Reading Challenge due to the author.
I found it absolutely fascinating.  Incredible hardships for adults,
let alone the children in the family.  And then to work through years of
struggle before attaining anything hoped for or dreamed of…
Though some unexpected romances do arrive at their doorways!
“Isobel thinks that she and her family will find their fortune in Canada. But Isobel”s mother dies before they even cross the ocean, and other misfortunes follow their every step. Isobel”s family and the other Selkirk Settlers are caught in the fur-trading rivalry between the Hudson”s Bay Company and the North West Company and cannot even start to build when they do reach their destination. The harsh climate, and escalating threats against the settlers, make it impossible to start a new life. Only through perseverance and help from the local Cree band are Isobel and her family finally able to put down roots in the Red River Valley. Vetted by historical experts, each book in this series contains maps, numerous period illustrations, and an extensive historical note.”

Now I’m into reading for a review due Tuesday..
A topic dear to my heart, 
but a big gulp at 350+ pages to be read before then!
Kudos to Ken Wytsma’s fantastic skill at headlining this topic~
  
That’s it for me gals.  
What’s on your stack for this Valentine Week?
Joining Sheila and the reading gang at Book Journey
