Good morning, and welcome to The Sunday Salon, where we celebrate our reading, blogging, and life.
I’m feeling a bit out of it, since I was reading rather late last night. But I couldn’t put down the exciting book that I finally finished. When I slept, I dreamed about it. Has that ever happened to you?
Yesterday, I took advantage of the wonderful weather and walked around the mall a bit before settling in for lunch, followed by this movie:
Wow, was it ever action-packed, and my adrenaline was pumping. I don’t usually go to action flicks, but this one starred Cate Blanchett, along with the intriguing actor from The Lovely Bones, Saoirse Ronan. Eric Bana also played in this one.
So…yes, I do recommend it, but be prepared for lots of heart-stopping moments.
Now for this past week…

Now for the reading week. What an exciting week it was, too. I began the week thinking that I had too many “downers” on my list, but I was pleasantly surprised. There was enough variety to keep me revved up and forging ahead.

So now…what’s next? Well, I still have one more book on last week’s list that I hope to read some today (Manic, by Terri Cheney).
This one is one woman’s journey through bipolar disorder. Yikes! See what I mean about my themes this week?
Luckily, the surprising humor in Augusten Burroughs’ book, plus the exciting mystery from Laura Lippman, kept me going.
Later today, maybe I’ll take a walk, since the weather is so lovely.
