Sunday Salon

The Sunday

It's Sunday once again. I have to say, I'm not sure how much reading I will get done today. I want to spend time this afternoon preparing for my trip home for the holiday. Every year I tell myself I won't wait until the night before to pack and of course that's what I end up doing. This year, I want to keep this promise to myself. I also want to do a little cleaning (I can't go away for a few days without cleaning. I like coming home to a clean house).

Anyway, I probably should try to squeeze some reading in today. The Ten Best Days of My Life is due Tuesday (I'm not sure if I will be able to renew it) and it's tradition for me to start reading the new Alex Cross book during my flight home. I'm really excited to read Cross Country, however I don't want to rush through my current read. Hopefully, I can read some tonight and finish it tomorrow.

I went to Barnes and Noble after church today to use my coupons. Why do I feel the need to use every single book coupon I receive? Isn't this how I got myself into this situation of having crammed book shelves of unread purchased books? I know this, but yet went anyway. After browsing for an hour or so, I finally decided to buy The Christmas Sweater. I wanted something different, so why not be festive? I also bought a book marker (I love book markers and just recently started purchasing them again. As a child, I collected book markers and as I got older and moved several times, my collection was lost.) I also left the store with a list of titles to add to my already long TBR list. I really can't complain about my morning: I heard a great, uplifting sermon and spent 90 minutes at a book store. A great start to my Sunday.

Best wishes for a peaceful holiday and safe travels. Happy Thanksgiving!
