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 8 III 2009 - Evening Edition
Good morning, fellow Salon Members! Sorry for the lateness of my posting today. I spent this past weekend visiting a friend in Chicago, and just got home from the Windy City! We spent a lovely (if not partially rain-soaked) couple of days taking in the sites and catching up. It was a good weekend.
My Miss Marple March is going well. I've finished Murder at the Vicarage and The Thirteen Problems (reviews to come sometime this week) and have got a decent start on The Body in the Library. I picked up The Moving Finger and Three Blind Mice whilst in Chicago and will probably order the remaining books from Amazon, so I should be going on quite nicely with the remainder of my month's reading!
Not much else to report, other than one little other bit of business. We have a winner of the autographed copy of Penelope Przekop's Aberrations!! Congratulations, Debs Desk, you were randomly chosen to be our winner! Everyone's name was thrown into a bag the appropriate number of entries, and my roommate pulled the winning name. Thank you again to everyone that participated and an especially big thank you to Penelope donating the book for the drawing. Please make sure to check out her blog, Aberration Nation, as well!
OK, that's it for today. It's been a long travel day, and I think I hear the siren call of a book and my bed, and that call must be answered. Happy reading!
**Stop the presses - we've got a Later Evening Edition Update!**
Whilst reviewing some old comments on the blog, I discovered that somehow I missed that I have a fabulous blog! Caspette, who runs the blog The Narrative Causality (you should go check it out!) nominated my blog for the Your Blog is Fabulous award!! Thank you so much, Caspette! This makes my day!!
