Good morning, everyone! Hope your week has been wonderful. Welcome to The Sunday Salon, our great virtual reading room where we gather to share tidbits of the past week—in life, in blogging, and in reading.
Last Sunday, I went shopping for bookshelves, and believe me when I say that it was very frustrating. Too expensive, too much assembly, etc. But then I found it! And they had someone who would assemble it for only $10.00 extra! Yippee!
So imagine my surprise when I got the call later in the day that it was assembled and ready to pick up.
Here’s my bookshelf with a few books on it. I will obviously rearrange things as I finish books and need to shelve them.
As I sit at my computer station (to the right of the shelves and TV), I glance over now and then and utter a little SQUEEEE!
Here are some of this week’s blog posts:
RESORTING TO TRICKERY – OR DOING WHAT’S NECESSARY
SATURDAY READING – ADVENTURES WITH SPARKY
Now for the Reading!

So what are the rest of you doing today? Books to read? Books finished? I hope you’ll stop by and share.
Today, I plan to work on this one (and continue reading Freedom).

A great set of books you’ve shared today. I listened to FACETS on audio and enjoyed it. I hated for the book to end. THE THREE WEISSMANNAS OF WESTPORT sound quite intriguing. I’ll have to add that to my wish list.
Thoughts in Progress
Thanks, Mason…I love books that seemingly fill my thoughts and take over my life….
Glad you could stop by.
Can’t help but love Janet Evanovich- haven’t read this one! Let us know how it is.
Thanks for stopping by, bookspersonally…I love visitors (and visiting other blogs!).

That bookshelf is so small…oh, I don’t think I could take that. 😉
Today, I’m planning on reading Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs, the first in her Bones series. Since I’ve been watching the show almost nonstop for the last month, I figured I might as well try the book.
Yes, it does look that way, doesn’t it? I have no more room for the large shelves. I have two BIG ones in my living room, and smaller ones throughout the house. If I remove couches and chairs, I could fit in larger bookshelves….LOL
Thanks for visiting, unfinished person.
Ooo, the shelf is lovely. I need some new bookshelves but got frustrated looking a few months back and haven’t wanted to look since then. I need to get back on that search…
I know it’s a small shelf, as unfinished person pointed out…but I seriously don’t have more room for larger ones. I already have two huge ones in the living room.
Thanks for stopping by, Amy….hope you do find a shelf that works for you.
Very nice shelf! Great selection of books, too.
Thanks, Yvonne…I plan to stack everything differently as I add more of my hardcover books.
These were all on top of my filing cabinet in the office!
Glad you could stop by.
The new bookshelf looks great! I had similar issues when shopping for dressers. It’s really hard to find something nice in the right price range.
Yes, it’s difficult…I was getting really frustrated, and then I thought of a place where I’ve found stuff before. I’m happy with it.
Yes, it would be great to have a bigger shelf, but I don’t have room! My two large shelves in the living room are overflowing, and I have several smaller shelves in all the other rooms.
Thanks for stopping by, Alyce.
It is frustrating searching for that exactly right bookshelf. Glad you found one you liked. I’m looking forward to reading The Weird Sisters at some point. Just finished Patricia Brigg’s River Marked.
Yes, it definitely is, Robin. Hope you have a great week, and thanks for stopping by.
Oh, what a lovely bookshelf!
I need new bookshelves. I bought mine—I kid you not—in 1979! They are looking pretty sad.

Thanks for stopping by, Deb…Oh, I have bookshelves older than that! LOL
But I’ve accumulated a few over the years, too, and one of my favorites is one my son built (a floor to ceiling set of shelves).
I’m pretty much out of room, so this newest set of shelves is small. Just the right size for the cubbyhole in my office.
