Last week I joined a great little on-line group called The Sunday Salon. The Sunday Salon is a virtual reading room where book lovers pledge to set aside time on Sunday’s to read and then create a post on their blog and share about what they read. It’s a great system and I can’t wait to get started. Unfortunately this Sunday was not going to find me participating. I have three books on their way to me in the mail and I haven’t wanted to delve into something else while waiting. The three books are Barbara Walter’s “Audition”, Jodi Picoult’s “Nineteen Minutes”, and the Planet Books reading group selection “Matrimony” by Joshua Jenkins.
If you are wondering what happened to the last book I was reading, “Boomsday”, well I lost interest. I hate it when that happens but when it does there is no climbing out of that hole for me. I think that the topic being so political and the real life Presidential election coverage just was too much for me. I didn’t feel like I was reading for enjoyment as the story continued. It was a good book and I am sure I will re-visit it again in the future, but I needed to put it back on the shelf for the time being.
I hope my order arrives in the early part of this week so I can dig in (I’m especially excited about Barbara Walter’s memoir) and participate in The Sunday Salon next weekend.
