It’s Monday! What Are You Reading? is hosted by Sheila at 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 is a great way to network with other bloggers, see some wonderful blogs, and put new titles on your reading list."

I look forward to seeing what you think of Whale Rider as a book (did you see the movie?). I haven't heard of a lot of the books on your list this week

Helen, I rarely watch movies or television, but I rate Whale Rider a 9/10, an excellent book. Kiki, who plans to review My Cat, the Silliest Cat in the World on Caturday, agrees with me that it is a 10/10, which means I loved it and couldn't put it down! (Yes, I know that's true of most children's picture books because of the length, so let's just say, "Loved it!!!!!")


10 - Loved it!! Couldn't put it down!!
9 - Excellent!
8 - Very Good
7 - Good
6 - Above Average
5 - Average

Anything lower: Nah
