Sunday Salon ~ Vacation Distraction

March.  How did we get to the second week of March already?  My reading has slowed down a bit as the year moves forward but I’m still reading.  As I impatiently await my Kindle 2, I picked up Emily Griffin’s Baby Proof off my shelf and started reading it this past week.  I thought that it would be a light and easy chick lit read but it’s turning out to be a thought provoking book about a couple who agreed they didn’t want kids when they got married.  Then the husband changed his mind and decided he did want munchkins.  So, the only logical (so far) solution is divorce because the wife isn’t giving in and is keeping to her life long stance of not becoming a mother. 

As we keep counting down (64 days) till our international move back to the states in May, Hubby and I decided to take a quick five day vacation to Hong Kong next Sunday.  I can’t wait to show him around Hong Kong Island and Kowloon!  I had the great luck of giong to Hong Kong with a girlfriend of mine back in the summer of 2007 and can’t believe my great fortune of being able to say I’ve been there twice after next week. 

Other than that, there isn’t a whole lot going on with me.  I’m in U.S.P.S./Military Mail Service limbo at the moment as I await the arrival of both my Kindle 2 and my new Sangria Red Sony Viao laptop.  Keep your fingers crossed that one if not both of them arrive this week please. 

What are you reading this week?  Are you waiting for something exciting to arrive in your mailbox or doorstep this week too?

  1. Baby Proof sounds like a great book! This week I’m reading The Elegance of the Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery and The Scarlet Letter. Have a good week!

  2. I tend to enjoy books with a lot of conflict so Baby Proof sounds pretty interesting to me.

    What part of the states will you you be moving to? Or do you know that yet?

    I am still reading Drood. I am taking my time with it because I am enjoying it do much but I do have to finish it soon as there is a review to write. I am also reading Laws of Harmony and Prudent Mariner.

  3. Vasilly ~ I’ve been hearing about The Elegance of the Hedgehog. I’ll have to put that on my TBP (To Be Purchased) list.

    Ti ~ We will be moving back to our home town area of DC. We are going to live in Northern Virginia. We can’t wait and are sooo excited!
    I really want to read Drood but I saw it at the store the other day and that sucker is HUGE. I’ll get it on my Kindle.
