Welcome to the Sunday Salon.
Happy Earth Day! The robin I wrote about last week that was trying unsuccessfully to make a nest in a bush with too few branches - my husband got some straw and made a nest for her in the same spot. She examined the ready made nest twice and then flew off, never returning. She has started to build another nest on the other side of the house, this one successfully. I guess it's only the cuckoo bird that will take another's nest for its own.
The Scarlet Pepper, a White House Gardener Mystery by Dorothy St. James and enjoying this cozy mystery. I've also started Jane Green's The Patchwork Marriage, (published by Michael Joseph, which is the same book titled Another Piece of My Heart, published by St. Martin's Press), and plan to begin reading Lucky Child soon for a book tour.
Here are some other books on my TBR list:
Hounds Abound (A Pet Rescue Mystery) by Linda O. Johnston
The Dog That Talked to God by Jim Kraus
The Sacred Thread: A True Story of Becoming a Mother and Finding a Family - Half a World Away by Adrienne Arieff
A Land More Kind Than Home by Wiley Cash
Access: Thirteen Tales by Xu Xi
On Monday, I'll be handing out 20 free copies of The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, books courtesy of World Book Night and will let you know how it went on Tuesday!
I hope to find some light or non readers to accept the books for reading. Anyone else volunteering to give out books?
How did this weekend's Read-A-Thon go for those of you who participated?
