Good morning, and welcome to another Sunday Salon event, during which we share what’s happening in our lives, bookish and otherwise.

Some of you may have joined in on the Dewey’s Read-a-Thon, so you’re probably pretty tired right now.  I know I am!

I fizzled out before it was even over, but I feel like I accomplished enough….

Here are some books read and/or started:

1.  Heiress without a Cause, by Sara Ramsey (Read the final 209 pages)

2.  The Return of Edgar Cayce, by C. Terry Cline, Jr. (Read whole book – 160 pages)

3.  The Accidental, by Ali Smith (still reading it!  Have read 60 pages so far)

So, to sum up:  I finished two books and started another, for a total of 429 pages in 7.5 hours.


As for the rest of the week, I did some major blogging, with too many posts to list, so here are some highlights:

Check out my Fourth Blogoversary Giveaway over at Story Corner, where there are some ARCs, among others, on the list.

Then I posted about Yvonne’s Socrates’s Cozy Mystery Giveaway – ending tomorrow!  So hurry!!

At my writing blog Forest Journey: Where the Journey Sometimes Takes Us shines a light on the writer’s life, along with an excerpt from my novel Embrace the Whirlwind.

Along the same lines, here is Where Does Creativity Happen?


What was the rest of the reading week like?  Well, click the titles/covers for reviews:

1.  Come Home, by Lisa Scottoline

2.  On Their Own, by Martha Shirk, et. al

3.  Mimosas, Mischief, & Murder (e-book) – by Sara Rosett


And that’s it…except, of course, for the Read-a-thon books listed above!

Another “happening” this week was my rediscovery of Pinterest.  This time I’m enjoying it!  Okay, I’ll admit it, I’m obsessed!  But when have I ever done something without getting obsessed?  lol

That was probably why I was reluctant to dive in….do I really need another obsession?  What about the rest of you?  Do you have passions/obsessions/fun habits?

    I also fizzled out about 3am. I remember pulling all nighters but that was years ago. Congrats on how much you read. I finished just one book and started another. The book I did read, however, was 450 pages. This was my first time participating and wondering if this is only an annual event?


    1. You hung in longer than I did, Cheryl! I think this event is annual, but there are other read-a-thons, too…I think.

      Next time I’ll shoot for fast-paced mysteries.

      Thanks for stopping by, and congrats on your success.


  2. Good job reading!!!!!

    It’s so fun to think “read-a-thon” and go for it!!! I was distracted off -n- on all day, but I sure had a blast!!

    I read on my e-reader, so it was endless fun and I have no idea how much I achieved. I’m Read-a-thon-ing all week, though, so it’s gonna be AWESOME! 😀


  3. Ahh I missed read a thon this year! I hope you had a good time. I didn’t do a full 24h when I did it either, but the spirit of it is still good. I was looking at your blog and have you started The Leftovers by Tom Perrotta yet? I read his first book which I neither loved nor hated so I’m not sure if I want to dive into one of his books again. Thanks for commenting on my blog! Have a good week.



  5. I fizzled out mot long after you did, but all in all it was a fun event. I’m going to try to keep up my reading mojo, as I’d lost it for awhile!
