Sunday Salon #4

Last night I finished The Little Book by Selden Edwards. It was really a wonderful book about a man in the 1980s who is swept back to 1897 Vienna. Beautiful, descriptive writing and an engaging storyline. My review will be up in the next few days.

I have just started reading The Dangerous Joy of Dr. Sex and Other True Stories by Pagan Kennedy, which I received from Andrew at the Santa Fe Writers Project. I am only on page fifteen but I really like the way the author writes. The introduction hooked me in right away.

This week I have received:
Stealing Athena by Karen Essex, courtesy of Adrienne at Doubleday. I'm really looking forward to reading this one!

The White Mary by Kira Salak

Rules for Saying Goodbye by Katherine Taylor, this one courtesy of a giveaway from Marie on her blog, The Boston Bibliophile . Thanks Marie!

I'm going to have to start reading faster, at this rate I will never get through all of these wonderful books! I need a couple of good, rainy days. I always seem to get more reading done when it rains.

It does feel good when we get books, doesn't it?!

I recently received a copy of The White Mary too and am looking forward to diving in. Lately, I've been feeling that I need to read faster too. I seem to be collecting ARE's like there was no tomorrow. If only my boss would pay me to stay home and read instead of coming into the office and doing my work. Haha

Dam, The Dangerous Joy of Dr. Sex and Other True Stories looks interesting!

I know, I love getting the review copies but I have been very successful at it lately. I'm starting to wonder if I will ever get to the stacks and stacks of NON review books awaiting my attention!

Thank you!!

About Me

New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
