April, 2020 - I think I'm going to shut From My Bookshelf down for a while; maybe for good. I've been putting this together for quite a few years now and it's starting to feel a bit more of a chore. I'll keep my Goodreads connected, but with the state of the world right now, I just want to read without worrying about making sure I post something about it. Who knows - when the world starts to make some semblance of sense again, I may start actively posting here again. Until then, as always, happy reading!

Sunday Salon 30 XI 2008
Good morning, fellow Salon Members! Where has the time gone? I have been wildly busy these last couple of weeks getting settled into my new home, and then off to house-sitting for my mother while she is on vacation in Florida. I was hoping to put a large dent into my TBR pile and get myself that much closer to my 100 book goal for the year (I'm at 86!) but suddenly, I find myself suffering from a lack of interest in reading. It's horrible! It has nothing to do with the books that I'm reading, but everything to do with a lack of desire to pick up any book right now. And I brought such loverly books with me to my mother's house to read. **le sigh**
Anyone else ever have this particular problem? I'm in the middle of some excellent books right now (Laura Kasischke's The Life Before Her Eyes, Bebe Moore Campbell's 72 Hour Hold, Evelyn Waugh's Decline and Fall) and I can't seem to concentrate on any of them. I pick one of them up, read a page or two, only to discover that I have no interest in reading any further. It's a most frustrating position to be in!
Hopefully I'll break free of this reader's block soon and have something more than this pitiful attempt to write in a Sunday Salon.
Hope everyone's reading is more productive than mine right now!
