Sunday Salon: Relaxing Sunday
Welcome to the Sunday Salon!
My current read? In the Shadow of the Cypress by Thomas Steinbeck, who I think is John Steinbeck's son.
Received in the mail, Making a Case for Life: A New Definition of Perfection by Stephanie Wincik, a book on disabled children and the vital role they play in families and society.
A book tour post will be up tomorrow for The Killing of Mindi Quintana by Jeffrey Cohen and I will be doing a review later on of the time-travel romance, Flirting with Forever by Gwyn Cready.
I'm also reading an ARC of the latest thriller set in hot Bangkok, The Queen of Patpong: A Poke Rafferty Thriller by Tim Hallinan, a Sept. 1, 2010 release.
I reviewed two books, in spite of a hectic work week: Nancy's Theory of Style, a romatic comedy by Grace Coopersmith, plus the detective thriller, Snakes Can't Run by Ed Lin. I also had a Guest post by Grace Coopersmith aka Marta Acosta, who also writes the Casa Dracula series.
Have you heard of the new eReader that's coming on the market, the Kobo eReader? Suzanne of Chick with Books has a post all about it. It's to be distributed by Borders and costs only $150! This may be the one for me!
