The Sunday Salon – Some Great Reads This week

Looking back at this week past – it has been a mixed bag for me. It was the US Thanksgiving and although I am on the other side of the pond I took the time to give thanks for the many blessing I have around me and the many more to come.

From great family and friends to the local bookshop guy that knows my taste – to my favourite authors who keep churning out those books that feels like they are especially written for me.

That said I made a special trip to the library this week and stock up on my graphic books… and so I had a fun few days going through them, I love a good artist and some of the ones I got introduced to this week were phenomenal – check back on WHAT AM I READING ON MONDAYS post to get the full round up.

I am hosting two challenges next year and both are so very near and dear to my heart. EROTICA ROMANCE READING CHALLENGE is the first one and well just because I love erotica and I love the naughty side of me most of all..

My second challenge is the INDI AUTHORS reading challenge – and it’s self explanatory really – I read alot of self pub books mainly because I love finding those little unknown gem and secondly a few of my most read authors are self pub.

Seasonal books are all over the place as well – I have not committed to any yet but  I will eventually be reading a few – hopefully I’ll find something that sparks my interest this week.

Hope you guys had a great week and for those still on a long weekend – it’s a new week already, make it the best week yet…

From The Sunday Salon site –

What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library's vast reading room. It's filled with people--students and faculty and strangers who've wandered in. They're seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they're all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they'll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon's literary intake....

That's what happens at the Sunday Salon, except it's all virtual. Every Sunday the bloggers participating in that week's Salon get together--at their separate desks, in their own particular time zones--and read. And blog about their reading. And comment on one another's blogs. Think of it as an informal, weekly, mini read-a-thon, an excuse to put aside one's earthly responsibilities and fall into a good book

Looking forward to your Reading on Monday post! I saw 'Night is Darkest' at your sidebar, I happened to have won that one this week, and I'm curious what you think of it!

I'm thankful for the same things! :)

Good luck on your challenges. One of these days I might give a book challenge a go but I'm just a bit mulish in my stubbornness. ;)
