Sunday Salon 12 XII 2009 - Not too much to report except that we have a winner!






Good morning, fellow Salon Members! Ah, the holiday season. The spreading of good cheer. The holiday cards to be filled out and mailed. The shopping. The baking. The total lack of enough hours in the day to get it all done. Where does the time go? Have I gotten those reviews written that I was going to get done last week? Nope. Have I read any another book since last week? And, nope. Do I hope that I can at least get one more book in before the end of the year. I hope so!

On a positive note, I've got a winner for the copy of James Dashner's The Maze Runner that I was giving away; congratulations to Sarah! She was lucky enough to have her name pulled from the hat. If you didn't win, don't despair! I've still got a giveaway going for a set of J.F. Englert's Bull Moose Dog Run Mystery books here. Good luck!

So, not much else to report for this week. I'm sitting on my bed while I'm typing this Salon, and I'm looking at my bookshelves and realizing that it's time to do some serious reorganizing and purging. I know that I have several books that I will never read again and maybe it's time to clean those out. Plus, the shelves are getting a little unorganized, so I think I'm going to have to take a weekend after the first of the year and do some serious housecleaning on them. Take out the stuff that I know I won't reread and get it all alphabetized again. That will be a good project for a nice, snowy weekend. Anybody else feel the need to do some housecleaning on their books too?

Hope everyone has a great week and happy reading!

I love organizing my books but I rarely get rid of them. I like moving them around and rediscovering things I have been meaning ti read. A long time ago I used to do alphabetical but since I moved to this house I am mostly working on an organizatiopn system only I understand.

Well, to be honest, I've got book all over the house, and for the most part only I know where I have certain books. My roomie is so patient with me, as I've more or less taken over every available shelf in the house, and still need more room. Hence the great purging going on right now. I'm not getting rid of anything that I have any attachment too, mostly ARCs that I either didn't really enjoy, or that I know I won't ever read again.

Someday, I'm going to have a place big enough to have an entire room dedicated to nothing but my books. Such a loverly dream! =)
