Sunday Salon (It's My Birthday!!!) & Give-a-Way

No joke!!! It is my birthday. I admit it, I'm shallow and "it's all about me." No, not really, but I will be alone today. However, I know Sunday Salon will make me smile and I will spend some time with you and a great book. Not to mention my greyts and felines. So if you want to just say hi and Happy Birthday don't hesitate.

This week was a slow reading week for me. It seems that I may have mono or some tick disease that is making me fall asleep. I can't tell you how disturbing this is for avid readers like us. Just picture you had a full nights rest.

As I woke up all I could think about was, coffee, relaxation, reading and relaxing. So I settle into my favorite comfy chair arranging cushions till they're just right. Nestling in I crack open the Host, by Stephenie Meyer, dying to read this I am just so psyched. I'm thinking as I'm reading, I'm so glad she is writing for adults also. I hope it is as good as her Twilight Series. ...........I open my eyes and realize I have been sleeping. I'm in the same position, my head still upright, the book pages flipped over my fingers.

Now, if this had been one isolated reading session, I wouldn't care, however, this has been happening for about two weeks. So, now on the weekend, I read a little, sleep a little, read a little, sleep a little and so on.....

For the record I've been reading, Home Girl (Early Reviewer LT), Caesar's Column, Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass, and the Host. That should keep me busy till the end of summer at the current reading/sleep pattern. LOL

I hope someday to finish a book again. Thanks for sharing my "25th+ a few" birthday with me. (NOT!!!)
Have a great week!!!

This is NIGHT NIGHT... he came off the track from Florida last week. He is almost 3 years old and ready to spend his life with a loving family as a pet. He's looking for a cushy job now, less running, definitely retirement on a cushy couch or extra padded pet bed. I spent yesterday at a Meet and Greet with him and he was quite a little sweetie. Very cute and taking it all in. He is up for adoption with Greyhound Rescue and Rehabilitation.

A happy birthday to you. And don't worry, reading will come. It happened with me in Feb. I couldn't read for three weeks.
