Welcome to another Sunday Salon, where we gather around and share our thoughts about the past reading, blogging, and life moments in the week.
With the calendar turned over into September, some of us celebrate the thought that fall is headed our way, with summer (almost) a thing of the past.
I love fall. To me, it is a reminder of new beginnings. In my childhood, I thought about crisp leaves, the scent of wood smoke (not so much anymore!), and cooler days. It also is “back to school” time…like this photo of my granddaughter (on the left) mingling in her high school crowd.
Where I live, in California’s Central Valley, the hot days will probably continue on and off into late September or even October.
In the autumn, I think about reading different kinds of books. While the beach reads are always fun, the cozy ones seemingly call to me.
What do you like to read in the fall?
This past week, I did some reading and quite a bit of work on my two WIPs, and here are some blog posts that reflect that:
Then the reading went like this – (click titles for reviews):
1. A Moveable Feast, by Ernest Hemingway
2. Rock Bottom, by Erin Brockovich
3. Next to Love, by Ellen Feldman
I’m still reading The Handmaid’s Tale (reread), by Margaret Atwood.
Later today, I may start reading Darkness, My Old Friend, by Lisa Unger.
And then I’m itching to see this movie, with Helen Mirren, et. al.
What are your plans as the summer days fade into a memory?
