Sunday Salon: Halloween Grinch

 Halloween Grinch
Click on the name to see.
Though I may change my mind,
You may very well find
A darkened door,
A displeasure even for me

Halloween Grinch has spoken. What about this Grinch in November? After eye surgery I can barely see and decided not to give out treats this year, so I don't fall over myself trying to fill blurred hands and bags in a darkened doorway.

I'm also listening to audio books, though I sneak every now and then, in between multiple eye drops, a quick read of more pages of a novel set in the French mountains, The Tapestry of Love by Rosy Thornton.

I'm also fascinated by The Secret Life of Bees by Sue Monk Kidd, and am on chapter 3. The audio book is read by a young girl who is superb in getting the nuances of the novel down.

Can't wait to listen to that long, long novel, The Angel's Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon. I doubt I'd read the whole thing, but I'll certainly listen to it. I find that if a book seems slow, I prefer to listen to the audio version. There are several books like that - and I really hope that Midnight's Children: A Novel by Salman Rushdie is on audio. I can think of many more books I'd like to listen to.
What did you read/do last week?


  1. I don't blame you for not wanting to hive out candy today!! Loved your poem!

  2. So many wonderful audio books out there. Hope you can enjoy a few of these until your eyes heal up.

  3. Glad to learn about it.
    love the writing on top.
    beautiful humor.

  4. Hope your recovery goes quickly. Audio books are great for long books.

  5. Cool. Midnight's children's on audio! I shall recommend it to my audio reading friend.

  6. I hope you are feeing better after the eye surgery. I really want to read Sue Monk Kidd myself. I am not into audios, but maybe I should give it a try someday.

    Nice poem as always.

  7. I hope you're recovering well from the surgery!


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
