Go-Go, Reviews, & Comments #SundaySalon
The scene: // Warm and sunny. We’ve had a remarkably mild summer in St. Louis so no one, for a change, is complaining about the weather.
Listening to: // “Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” — I added it to my Good Morning playlist on Spotify a few weeks ago when someone mentioned it on Facebook. I remember when that song played on the radio!
Reading: // Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman.
Blogging about: // Books! Last week’s Review-a-Thon burst all over my blog this week with four book reviews and one fun excerpt:
- The Diet Fix by Yoni Freedhoff
- The Illustrated Longitude by Dava Sobel
- Shield of Winter by Nalini Singh
- Some of My Best Friends are Black by Tanner Colby
- Benjamin Franklin in Paris (from Walter Isaacson’s biography)
Ha! Seeing them listed like that, I’m suddenly aware of how much variety is there. And, how much this lists reflects what I typically read. An odd juxtaposition of variation and same-old.
Participating in// My own personal Comment-a-Thon because I’m behind on commenting on other people’s blogs.
What are you up to this fine Sunday?
Here’s a recommendation for your trip to England: The Dolphin Crossing. It has a WWI theme.
Thanks! That sounds good.
I love to mix my books up, too; it keeps me from being bored. Enjoy your week, and here’s MY WEEKLY SUNDAY/MONDAY UPDATES POST
I love the idea of a comment-a-thon. I need to do something similar. Have a good week, Joy!
I should be writing my Sunday Salon and an email to family and friends I left in Chattanooga when I moved here, but instead I’m going with my friend Donna (who was my roommate in Chattanooga) to eat at Guido’s Pizzeria and Tapas about 4:30 or 5:00. Want to meet us there? I think you have my phone number. Donna is the friend who used to work at the St. Louis County Library.
I love the variety in reads 🙂 Makes life more interesting, right? I’m cooking this Sunday. It’s been a while since I cooked anything–just wasn’t happening with a sick herd–but today got back in the kitchen and it felt SO good. Made chili, corn bread and chocolate cream pie. Yummy and a nice bit of relaxing 🙂
