Sunday Salon, November 1, 2009

The Sunday

Happy Sunday Salon to everyone!!

For all of you baseball fans, I hope you are enjoying the World Series. I just loved this pic of the First Lady that was taken at the first game of the series at Yankee Stadium. I know she is a fan...but who is she routing for I wonder?

I hope everyone had a Happy Halloween and enjoyed the extra hour of sleep. I just love when we turn the clocks back in the fall. I love the extra daylight in the morning. I thought I would have an extra hour to sleep this morning, but silly me. My four rooing greyhounds had other plans and their internal clock was still set on yesterday's time.
So, here I am at 7:00AM writing Sunday Salon.

I have missed everyone and missed reading your blogs. I feel much better and hope things are turning around for me. I have been reading quite a lot and have several reviews to post. I will be writing those in the coming days.

If you didn't catch my previous post on White Mary, I have to tell you this book is a real page turner and one I highly recommend.

This week I finished reading:

The Private Papers of Eastern Jewel by Maureen Lindley. I had to struggle to keep picking up this book. I just couldn't identify with the main character. I had no empathy for her. All I kept thinking was "Who cares?"

I finished Half Broke Horses (A True Life Novel) by Jeannette Walls in one day. All I can say is, I would drop everything I had to do to read a story by this author. Walls is such a superb storyteller! If you read The Glass Castle(I loved it), you will love Half Broke Horses!

Currently Reading:
I'm reading No Wind of Blame by Georgette Heyer.
E-Book---The Wife's Tale from Hachette Book Group.

What is everyone reading? I'll stop by in a while. Enjoy your week.

I'm glad to hear that you're feeling better! My cats decided to have a race and wrestling match throughout my bedroom and on the bed first thing this morning, so I didn't get to sleep in either. It was quite a shock to wake up to a cat flying right at my face (thankfully he jumped over me, but it was still a shock).

Glad to know you're feeling better!

I came back from a mountain climbing trip and is now quite bruised from the experience. It was great fun though.

I'm currently reading ISOLATION by Travis Thrasher.

I am currently reading Cloth Girl by Marilyn Heward Mills. I have been reading it for a while because I have been busy with work...

I didn't like Private Papers either, although I thought her writing was fairly good, which helped me keep picking it up so I could hurry up and get to something else.
