“What is the Sunday Salon? Imagine some university library’s vast reading room. It’s filled with people–students and faculty and strangers who’ve wandered in. They’re seated at great oaken desks, books piled all around them, and they’re all feverishly reading and jotting notes in their leather-bound journals as they go. Later they’ll mill around the open dictionaries and compare their thoughts on the afternoon’s literary intake….”
It’s the last week of school, always a time of great excitment and some sadness. We have picnics and field day and a little time to reflect on the year, what worked, what didn’t and what we can try next year. I’ll be spending part of the summer moving and organizing our library and hopefully acquiring some new books!
Have needed to come up for air this past week after several intense books and a tired brain so indulged my love of mysteries and read Missing by Karin Alvtegen and started Nemesis by Jo Nesbo. For some reason, when I want sheer entertainment, I am hooked on Swedish/Norwegian/Icelandic crime fiction! Then, after visiting Caribousmom I discovered the Mystery Read-a-thon, too late to join this time but I’m on it for next time.
I also joined the 4 Rs Challenge organized by Fyrefly and Literate Housewife. Please check this one out, it is great fun and a wonderful way to meet other book lovers and get book recommendations.
I am still working on the poetry web site, not giving up on that one and hope to have it up soon.
Have a wonderful week!
