The Sunday Salon for January 17th

Happy Sunday everyone!  I've managed to pawn the Pirate off on a friend (tho in my defense, I did invite her son here, it just turned out this way!) and Mike is gone for the day so it's just me and the Buggy for a while. We're watching a little Yo Gabba Gabba and I'm planning to do a little reading soon.

I've been trying to catch the blog up for 2009, and I think I only have one more review left to write (and two more for 2010!) I've scheduled them out of the next couple of weeks, but I'm happy to almost caught up.  One thing I forgot to do at the end of December was to list the books I added in December to my Books to Read list, so here it is, a few weeks late. Have you read any of these?

Understanding Comics: The Invisible Art by Scott McCloud- Rebecca Reads

I've finished up 3 books so far in 2010 and am well on my way to a fourth. I'm having a hard time settling in with any one book, so have been drawn into re-reading a bit, but it's still enjoyable.

I am an Amazon Associate. As such, any purchase you make at after following a link from this blog will earn me a (tiny) percentage back as income. Thanks.


  1. The only one I've read is the one that's on the list because of me.

    Happy reading! I'm sitting here waiting for rain, booing the Cowboys and toying with Wolf Hall.

  2. I don't have any of those books. I am reading Perfection and it is okay. I am hoping that it will pick up some. I haven't bought anything new in a while. I have so many books that I have mooched the last year and since I haven't read any, I have them piled up. Enjoy your day of reading.

  3. Well, I'm out of it - I don't even know what Yo Gabba Gabba is. I've read See You in a Hundred Years and I really liked it! I think you will too.

  4. It's such a good feeling, isn't it, to be nearly all caught up?

    I haven't read any of the books on your reading list, but several sound really good.

    I hope you have a great week, Lisa.

  5. Yo Gabba Gabba. Enough said. Except that my daughter loves it and watching it makes me a bit crazy :) Sounds like you found some good books. And lucky you that you may actually catch up from 2009...I on the other hand, may never catch up. LOL! Have a great Sunday!

  6. I cannot imagine the desire to wash dishes in all 50 states. Can't wait to hear about Dishwasher!
