Sunday Salon: What Next?

The Sunday Salon.comWelcome to the Sunday Salon. Click on the logo to join in.

After finishing and reviewing the surprisingly easy to read  Murakami's 1Q84,
I thought I'd switch to something entirely different.

My new book is Yoga Bitch: One Woman's Quest to Conquer Skepticism, Cynicism, and Cigarettes on the Path to Enlightenment by Suzanne Morrison, about the author's trip to a yoga retreat in Bali, Indonesia that she attended before a planned move to NYC with her boyfriend. In spite of the title, there are no swear words in the memoir, none I've come across as yet, but lots of candid and humorous comments on yoga, the yogis, and her fellow yoga students.

There is a TLC book tour review of The Secret Life of Rachel DuPree that I'll post tomorrow. I'm also reading a fun book, an illustrated travel memoir, for another book tour later this month - Borneo Bob. This one takes you all over Southeast Asia.

I also have a brand new granddaughter! I can't see her personally as yet as she's in Japan, but I hope to see pictures and catch her later on webcam.

Have a great week to come! What have you been up to this past week?


  1. Congrats on finishing 1Q84, and on the new granddaughter! So wonderful that people can see each other by webcam now!

  2. Congratulations on the new grandbaby! I bet you will be so pleased to see her! Also, that Yoga book sounds fascinating and like something that I would love to read. I might have to consider checking it out!

  3. Oh, congrats on the new granddaughter! I'll bet you can't wait to hold her...hope you get to soon.

    And how great that you finished and enjoyed 1Q84. It sounds really good, as does your new book Yoga Bitch. A little bit Eat, Pray, Love, but more fun...


  4. Thank you for sharing a little about 1Q84. It's the one I'm itching to read.

    And congratulations on the g-baby!

    Have a great week with the Yoga book..I think I need yoga to help with my crazy mood swings and fat body!

  6. Congratulations on the birth of your granddaughter!

    That yoga book is on my wish list, I'm glad to hear you're liking it.

  7. Congrats on a new grandchild how much fun.

    I wouldn't think 1Q84 would be a "quick" read, but was happy to see that you finished it and liked it. I do have it on my Kindle.

    Have a great week.

  8. Not at all quick, Diane, but easy, meaning a smooth and interesting read over several days!

    Thanks everyone on congrats for the new grandbaby. She is now home and crying lustily whenever hungry. (I heard her :))

  9. Congratulations on your new grandchild - how exciting!

    Yoga Bitch sounds like an interesting read.


I love getting comments and your thoughts...
