The Sunday Salon - What a Week, What A Month



What a week this was – I read and read and then read some more. One of the highlight of last week for me was of course the weekend where I took part in the Dewey 24hrs- Read-A-Thon, what a blast that was.

I am definitely getting older, it takes me forever to recover from a missed night sleep… age, no one warned me about the trial of it all

I ended up reading 6 books for the read-a-thon and I totally loved them. The entire night was full of fun and laughter with people from all over the world doing their bit in the reading department.

That was the week and then there is the month – October is over and with only two more months left for the end of the year, my local bookshop is over run with Christmas offerings and even the online haunts of mine are no better. I am not a fan of seasonal reading but  I will of course pick up the odd one or two but nothing more than that.

Another event that passed quietly for me was Halloween – I definately do not celebrate this event – but I must admit I had many fun filled moments enjoying my friends post and antic over the past few weeks… I know they all had a great time over the Halloween weekend.

This coming week I have a whole lot of books I need to get through and I plan to make a trip to my little out of the way bookshop – to find out what goodies are in. I tend to find the sweetest little read at that shop.

What ever plans you have this week I wish you a wonderful week…


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
