The Sunday Salon: Ho, Hum week
Welcome to the Sunday Salon! You can join in and sign up by clicking on the salon logo.
In between full time work, I did only two book reviews the past week. I tried to sneak in as many pages of reading as I could during lunch and breaks. I'm on the computer all day but can't blog, of course. It's been a busy but Ho Hum week.
Posted a review of The Writing on My Forehead: A Novel by Nafisa Haji (March 2009) for TLC Book Tours, plus a guest post by the author on writing.
The Godfather of Kathmandu by John Burdett, detective fiction, also got a review, which I changed around a few times as I had a hard time expressing how I felt about the book. There was just so much to it.
I'm half way through The Old Capital by Yasunari Kawabata, a short novel about the beauty of the old Kyoto, the ancient capital, and about a young girl finding out that she is adopted. Straight forward and easy to read.
I started a new mystery novel, Murder in the Palais Royal (Aimee Leduc Investigations, No. 10) by Cara Black, set in Paris. One of my favorite mystery series.
Then there is a love story, Love in Mid Air by Kim Wright, a debut novel which I've started but not yet finished!
On the 6-hour drive to and from Canada last weekend, we listened to 8 discs of the 17-disc audio of The Swan Thieves: A Novel. My hubby, who loves art and a good mystery, really liked it. When will there be time to listen to the rest?
It will rain tomorrow. Later, I'll take down the old robin's nest in the tall bush/tree outside my window. I think robins build new ones each year.
Ho, hum, time to turn in! What did you do last week?
