Welcome to the Monday Morning edition of the Sunday Salon! I had hoped to get this posted last evening, but was away at Twin A's volleyball tournament. The team played well and kept winning into the semi-final round, but by then we were thankful to have them lose and take third place so we could begin the nearly 3 hour drive home!
It's been a good week of reading, mostly focused on short stories and essays. The essays, which I am thoroughly enjoying, are from John Updike's Due Considerations. There may be a short story post later today, but it could prove to be a Short Story Tuesday week instead.
The novel I am currently reading is The Home-Maker by Dorothy Canfield Fisher. Although it was published in 1924, the issues it addresses seem surprisingly contemporary. I hope to finish sometime this week.
My book club met on Friday to discuss William Paul Young's The Shack. It was an interesting meeting and I'll be posting my review along with the group's assessment later this week. I'm also still trying to get my thoughts down on The Wapshot Chronicle by John Cheever.
I'm nearly half-way through the 15 CD audio of The Help and loving every second! It occurs to me that since it's actually making me wish for more time in the car, it should probably be listened to while exercising instead!
Finally, Zetor at MOG'S blog has awarded me the Super Comments Award! Comments received here are much very appreciated, so I try to leave a comment whenever I can, even if it's just to say, "Great review!" or "I loved that book, too." Thank you so much, Zetor!
I will pass this award on to these Super Commenters:
Lisa at Booknotes by Lisa
Lezlie at Books 'N Border Collies
Molly at My Cozy Book Nook
Darlene at Roses Over A Cottage Door
My thanks goes out to Fleur Fisher at Fleur Fisher Reads for the One Lovely Blog Award. She also has 'one lovely blog ', so I'm very glad to have discovered it! I passed this award along at last week's Sunday Salon.
Hope you all had a wonderful weekend and have a productive reading week ahead!
