Good morning! Welcome to The Sunday Salon, that giant reading room that stretches across the blogosphere, connecting us all to one another for some updates and tidbits about our lives.
Wow, this past week seemed to skid by faster than usual, and I’m not sure why. But I did manage to read some books and post on some of my blog sites.
Here are some sample posts:
Meet “Sparky” — A Kindle Sequel
A Bit of Me (Me) – Colors of the Rainbow
My Saturday Snapshot post triggered something yesterday. Soon I had photo albums spread out all over the place, as I searched for another photo from ‘way back. Here it is:
Now for the reading. The first two books seemed to fly by…but toward the end of the week, I started the longest one of the three. I kept getting distracted, so it was slow going. But then yesterday, I read all day, off and on, finally finishing it late last night. Phew! What a thrill ride.
This morning my Kindle battery was dead, so it’s charging now. This is my first recharge of the Kindle since I received it at Christmas.

You have some interesting reads here. I look forward to your take on WHERE ANGELS FEAR. BTW, cute photo of your daughter. 🙂
Thoughts in Progress
Thanks, Mason….My daughter and I were talking about this photo the other day, so, of course, I had to search through the albums until I found it.
Glad you could stop by.
Lovely dimples, Laurel-Rain! And what an interesting a varied reading schedule you’ve had. The non-fiction about growing up sounds especially interesting. I was also interested in what you said about guessing the page number with the Kindle – I do miss the page numbers. Percentage through the book is not the same!
I know, Clare…I find myself trying to guess the page numbers from the percentages….
The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo was the longest book I’ve read on my Kindle so far. I really think I finish faster on my Kindle…not sure why.
Thanks for stopping by, and for the compliments on the dimples. She still has them as an adult, but she has lost her “flower child” look.
I liked the second one of the Millennium (Larsson) trilogy the best, but the first one was good too. The third one was okay, but I still liked the second one the best.
Oh, now I won’t be able to wait before ordering it! Thanks for stopping by, Unfinished Person.
I must be the only person that hasn’t read The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo! Judging from your review, I should probably save it for vacation so I won’t have to put it down… hope you enjoy the second book just as much.
Actually, JoAnn, I thought I was the last person to read this one…LOL
Thanks for stopping by.
Adorable picture of your daughter!
Happy Sunday! Have a great week!
Thanks, Yvonne…hope you have a great day, too.
Just got back from lunch and shopping with two of my grandkids…now they’re watching a movie.
I’ll have to read your review of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. I think I’m the last holdout for these books!
And here I thought I was the last holdout! LOL
I was pleasantly surprised by the book, and I’m told that the second one is even better. Thanks for stopping by, Amy.
