The Sunday Salon: Reads and a Giveaway
I'm working on the Mystery Read-A-Thon which ends today, and tackling a book I've been meaning to read, Pilikia is My Business by Mark Troy, a mystery set in Hawaii. I've finished reading another mystery, Knit, Purl, Die by Anne Canadeo.
I'm also working on finishing a travel memoir by Oreste leRoy Salerni, The Youngest Son: Memoirs from the Motherland, a personal account of a professor on sabbatical in Tuscany for six months in 2003-2004. I'm thoroughly enjoying it. Makes me want to see the parts of Italy I missed on a trip I took years ago after college! I visited Florence and Pisa in Tuscany, but haven't seen Naples, Mount Vesuvius, the picturesque Amalfi Coast, or Venice - places visited in this book.
This past week, I reviewed and posted a giveaway of The Last Surgeon and an interview with author Christina Sunley, reviewed the cozy mystery, Truly, Madly, and shared a Japanese woodblock print and Chinese classical music on the blog.
I realize now I was somewhat busy this past week although I had promised I would slow down in the blogging area! But since I love doing it, there's no stopping :)
What have you posted on your blog this past week?
