The Sunday Salon (January 6)
Yup, we’re going back! Well– not all of us. My brother’s not coming this time, so it’s just me and my parents. And all our stuff.
I’ll be gone from the internets for a little over a week. I expect I’ll be too tired next Sunday to do a proper Sunday Salon post, so it’ll no doubt be late. Meanwhile, I’ve written up a series of posts to tide y’all over for the week! Obviously I won’t be answering your comments (or emails) until I get back, so please don’t think I’m ignoring you!
And in case you’re wondering: I’m not bringing ANY paper books with me on vacation. I’m just bringing my Kindle! It’s a little scary– I’ve ALWAYS brought paper books with me on vacation before now– but I think I can do it. I’m aiming to read at least three books while on my trip: The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, Dust, and The Odyssey. The first two are for my two book clubs, and the last is for the Classics Circuit. And if I finish those I’ve got tons more loaded up, including two others that I really want to read: Lockdown: Escape from Furnace 1 and When My Name Was Keoko.
Books read this week:
001. Inventing George Washington – Edward G. Lengel [rating: Buy it] R
Off to a slow start, I’m afraid. I’ll get my momentum eventually!
In My Mailbox (11)
In My Mailbox is a weekly meme created by The Story Siren (who was inspired by Alea of Pop Culture Junkie‘s This Week in Books). Basically you just post about new books that came into your house over the past week, whether in the mail or by getting them at the library or by buying them in a store. Capiche?
