The Sunday Salon – Just because..

I have not kept up to date with The Sunday Salon for a few weeks now and thought I would do a little catch up today.

I have been reading like a fiend as usual and having a good time of it as well. A few months ago I started a petition at my local library for Yaoi books to be added to the library catalogue and after loads of harassment by myself – They  have caved in and now have them there.

With some restriction (like not physically stocking them) but I can do a reservation via the net and then collect them from the library collection point. What ever works – I am only glad that another genre is added to the library. So go me – yhayyyyy..

I am going to do a update of my challenges this week – I have been reading alot of graphic novels and really getting into it. After 5 months, I can honestly say the Graphic Novel Challenge has been one of the best things of the year so far for me – in terms of reading.

Some of you guys might have notice the badge above for the Author Appreciation Blog Crawl. It’s only been a few days in but I am already loving it. Bloggers are phenomenal in their ire when it comes to an authors work but they are even more special in how they can say I love your work, I love your style – keep it up.

The blogger and their letters featured so far are

5/6 http://kassa-rvws.livejournal.com/ To J.D. Robb and Jordan Castillo Price.
5/7 http://tamsreads.blogspot.com/ To Lynn Lorenz
5/8 http://www.myfriendamysblog.com/ To Susan May Warren
5/9 http://wrenboudreau.blogspot.com/ To Charlie Cochrane

I am so looking forward to this coming weeks list of fan letters and new authors and books that I am sure I will find.

I will be doing a giveaway on the blog in a few day, Ms M from Moonlight to Twilight blog has tossed out a challenge to blogger to do a giveaway – I have added my name to the list, as  I have tons of books that I am sure someone out there will appreciate.. So check back in a few days time.

 

May is Masturbation month - I was just as shock as you to learn there is actually a month dedicated to this fine art.. Follow this link HERE - The Steam Powered Vibrator and Other Sex Toys to read  up about the history of Vibrators and just for your enjoyment – here is one of the earliest vibrator..

Enjoy the weeks peeps…

Until next week – cheers



From  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

I was clueless about May also! I think that Steam powered vibrator is pretty darn neat though...how do I get one? :D

That's a great idea that MsM came up with, startinga book giveaway meme. I'm in for that one :).

That's awesome with the library and the books!

Umm . . . I wonder if we can buy "Happy Masturbation Month" cards. We could probably make a fortune selling ones that we made ourselves.

I'n my head I see a Mother's Day/Masturbation Day combo card that says something like "May is for Mothers" on the outside, and on the inside it says "and for Masturbation. Have a great day, Mom!"

That is so wrong.

@Amy..

It looks like a torture tool - I'll take the modern version anyday...

Cool another one for the giveaway.. I am still going through a pile to give away..

Yup - Yaoi in the library - great...

LOL, the library couldn't stand up to the power of EH. You go girl!!

The book giveaway is such a good idea. Maybe next time. I just don't have the energy right now to get books out of storage to participate this time.

That steam powered vibrator is pretty neat. I had no idea they had them at that time. Also had no idea Masturbation had a month. Go figure. :)

@Eyre, love your greeting card. ;) Too funny.

I love the Blogger Crawl feature EH and I'm looking forward to reading all the letters!!! The 'From My Shelf To Yours...Giveaway' sounds awesome too and I have a bed full of books but the shippingfee is breaking me up :( Or else I would've added a massive giveaway :)

And girl, the pic of the first vibrator, you always find such interesting news items LOL I was a bit dumbfound that there was actually a month celebrating masturbation. The picture is a far cry from the neon colored sparklies they sell today LOL

@Lily..

It was really sad that I had to resort to weekly harrasment to get the books in the library - but they are there now... all is well in my world..

That vibrator thing was certainly a surprise to me - and it so looks like a torture tool...


That card is so wrong, so wrong..

@Leontine ..

I am having so much fun with the blog crawl - some authors added to my list already..

I have loads of books as well to get rid off - so I am going to face the music and do one

That vibrator thing was a cool find - I had to share it.. Had to..
