Happy Sunday! Sunday Salon is hosted by Deb at ReaderBuzz. Check out her post and the links to see what other bloggers have been up to in the last week.
How’s the weather?
We had a few remarkably warm days this week. No White Christmas for us! But since Rick is responsible for plowing out our dead-end street and he has a head cold, we’re not disappointed.
What are you reading?
I rarely read a book and review it in the same week, but I did exactly that with The Christmas Bookshop by Jenny Colgan — a fun one for the season, especially for us book lovers.
Since I knew that I wouldn’t manage any more Christmas-themed reviews for the blog, I took the next book that Libby released to me from my holds list. It turned out to be Resonance Surge by Nalini Singh. I almost always devour the books in the Psy-Changeling world.
That world is much like our own but instead of one sentient species, there are three. The Psy are connected in a virtual world by their minds and have a variety of what we call supernatural powers. The changelings are able to switch between animal bodies and people bodies and the ways that they live and organize themselves are based on their animal personas. There are humans, too, but they don’t show up very often in the books.
What are you watching?
J. Draper is a London tourist guide who also makes history videos on YouTube. Since I enjoyed The Muppet Christmas Carol, for the first time, a couple of years ago, this analysis of the historical accuracy (both to 1843 and to the text of the book) was fun:
The Doctor Who Christmas special will stream on Disney+ on Christmas Day, but I haven’t fully caught up with the three new David Tennant episodes, so I better get that done on Christmas eve, too.
What are you doing?
Since we visited family last week, we’ll have a quiet Christmas. I have some good food planned and some good programs to watch (see above). I reduced my Christmas decorations last year, but I have colorful lights, greens, and sentimental ornaments — just right.
How are you this fine Sunday?
