The Sunday Salon: #2

The Sunday

It's the second day of my THREE DAY WEEKEND. (Can you tell how excited am I? Even better, daycare is OPEN tomorrow, so I get an entire day to myself. I can't wait... I have plans for coffee with a friend in the morning, a trip to the Brand New Target, a quick stop for some fusible interfacing for some sewing, then home to sew uninterrupted! BLISS.)

Anyway. Today is only Sunday and my husband is working, so I'm home alone with the boys. The Bug has just gone down for his morning nap and the Pirate is working on "I'm Hungry" for the 18th time this hour. I'm going to blog and read blogs for this nap and then sew when they are both napping. I'm planning to not do much housework today, in favor of reading in between.

This week I finished one book, Cry Wolf. I just posted my review here. I am going to give this one away, along with On the Prowl, so if you're interested, click over to my review to leave a comment. I really loved it, so if you haven't read it and want to, be sure to go by.

I started reading THREE different books this week, at various times. They are wildly different from each other but all are good. This brings my total to 6, I think. I think I am incapable of reading one at a time. This Wednesday is avidbookreader's TBR Day, and I hope to finish Cerulean Sins by Laurell K. Hamilton for that. This is the 11th book in the series. I read the 10th one in 2002 but so far have been able to pick right up on the details. It's a lot denser than the other paranormals I've been reading and slower going. It feels nice to be returning to my paranormal roots, but I am nervous as this is where the crazy sex stuff starts.

The other five books are:
The Boy in the Striped Pajamas by John Boyne
Size 14 isn't Fat Either by Meg Cabot
Lady of Quality by Georgette Heyer
My Sister's Keeper by Jodi Picoult
and Death Masks by Jim Butcher.

Last week for The Sunday Salon, I offered The Thirteenth Tale to a lucky winner. I wrote all your names on these super cute striped post-it notes and had the Pirate pick a name. He can't read, so it seemed pretty fair. He picked Jessica! Congratulations, Jessica, email me with your mailing address so I can get it in the mail this week. My email address is in my profile.

If you want to win Cry Wolf, don't forget to comment on this post.

Now, I'm off to read some of the other Sunday Salons before the Bug wakes up and needs me.


  1. I'm incapable of limitimg my reading to one book at a time too - as you saw on my blog. I like the variety.

  2. I don't know how people can read more than one book at a time. One is my limit!

  3. I am never able to read more than one book at a time. I get SO confused. So I very much admire those of you who can read different ones. I'm jealous of your three day weekend. My mom works for the post office and also has one - I always fuss at her too. :-)

  4. Enjoy your day tomorrow! Being able to do your own thing will be a nice change. :-)

    I am about two books behind in the Anita Blake series at the moment. And the Dresden Files series for that matter. I love Jim Butcher's series. It's one of my favorites.

    I hope you have a great week!

  5. I have always read more than one at a time, as long as I can remember. I used to read a narrower range of genre too, and it was fine.

    It should be a good week, wendy, I'm off tomorrow, and then off at 3:30 on Friday to take the Bug for a checkup. And shots, but we aren't telling him that.

  6. Lisa, thanks so much for giving away a copy of The Thirteenth Tale and for giving it to me! I'm so excited to read it.

    I can't believe that you are reading six books at one time. When I do that, I usually end up abandoning some of them part way through in favor of finishing the others.

    Have fun on your day to yourself!
