The Sunday Salon 13 July 2008






Hello, fellow Salon Members! I hope this loverly Sunday morning finds all of you healthy and well-read for the week.

It's nice to be back in a mood for reading. I've had a far more productive first 2 weeks in July than I did the entire month of June, such a dismal reading month! This last week, I tried to read the ARC The Spirit of the Place by Samuel Shem, which was a disappointment. I have moved on to my next ARC, Penelope Przekop's Aberrations, which proves to be a much better selection. I also enjoyed Walter Moers' A Wild Ride Through the Night. I also admit to cheating horribly on my reading challenge for the year, with a recent reread of Brian Froud's Lady Cottington's Pressed Fairy Book, 10 3/4 Anniversary Edition.

Well, it appears to be a short Salon for me this week. My roomie just stopped by from housesitting for his parents, and we have decided to have lunch today and enjoy the beautiful day, so off I go. It is too loverly a day to be wasted indoors today.

I hope to be able to visit some of your Salons later in the day.

Happy reading, everyone!

I have a copy of Aberrations sitting here on my shelf to read and am looking forward to it.

I hope you have a great week.

Hi literary feline-

I read Aberrations all the way through yesterday. Once I got into the story, I couldn't put it down.

I'll be reviewing it later today, and will be interested to hear your take on it.
