Ah, it is the weekend and the rain has returned. Book Bloggers Appreciation Week was quite an adventure. I have found many wonderful blogs to add to my reader, new books to add to my to-be-read list,and left comments all over the place. I will be spending time this week visiting newly discovered blogs and saying hello.
Again, bravo to Amy and all the fabulous BBAW volunteers who put so much time and effort into making this event a rousing success. Congratulations to all the award winners and may you all have a fun-filled year of blogging ’til the next BBAW.
Now, to catch up with my reading. I finished The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova and should have my review up by mid-week. I also read a lovely graphic memoir, French Milk by Lucy Knisley, that I first heard about over at things mean a lot.
I’ve started A Student of Weather for the Canadian Book Challenge and am loving every word. It is the first time I have read anything by Elizabeth Hay.
September 26 – October 3, 2009 is Banned Books Week. I want to read banned books during September/October and the first that caught my eye is a book I’ve read before and wanted to read again, In Cold Blood by Truman Capote. Then I discovered this book , which some have compared to Capote’s masterpiece. So, I’m reading both for the R.I.P. IV challenge. Not sure in what order, I think reading them at the same time might be too creepy. Of course, by themselves, either one may be too creepy.
How was your week? Did you enjoy BBAW? What are you reading?
Sunday Salon is an important part of my blogging week, I reflect on the past days and plan a bit for the future. I visit blogs I know and blogs that are new to me. It is my favorite weekly event. To find out more about it please visit this site.
