The Sunday Salon: 11/10/13
Time // 8:30 Sunday morning
Place // my favorite chair
Drinking // black coffee
Reading // Last night I made the decision that reading will be my main activity today... possibly with a football game on in the background. First up will be the local paper and New York Times, followed by If on a Winter's Night a Traveller by Italo Calvino. Our midpoint posting date for #ReadCalvino is coming up on Friday. I'll be out of town, but hope to get my act together and preschedule a post. If not, it will have to wait until Monday.
Our next book club selection is Runaway by Alice Munro and I need to make some progress there, too. The first two stories were very good, so I have high hopes for the next six.
Listening// I finished The Patriarch: The Remarkable Life and Turbulent Times of Joseph P. Kennedy by David Nasaw ... the entire 31 hours and, wow, what an outstanding biography! This will be tough to follow this act, so I'll turn to something entirely different. I'm considering Me Before You by JoJo Moyes. This seems to be universally loved and I've had an audio review copy for quite some time. Since it's on CD, I'll only be listening in the car. Maybe I should add another book to my phone, too...
Watching// Masterpiece Classic's The Paradise, loosely based on Emile Zola's novel The Ladies' Paradise. It fills the Sunday evening void left by Downton Abbey... just under two months until the new season begins!
Making// Pumpkin Oatmeal in the slow cooker! It was good enough to merit its own Weekend Cooking post... stay tuned.
Anticipating// A full house for Thanksgiving, a quick trip to Florida, and the just-announced return of The TBR Triple Dog Dare. Life is good.
What are you up to this Sunday?
