Sunday Salon

It was a long, tiring week. Having my schedule interrupted from the holidays left me feeling exhausted by Friday. Returning to the 5-day work week was difficult, to say the least. I spent most of my weekend lounging and reading. Not that I'm complaining, mind you.

Earlier this morning, I finished Easy on the Eyes by Jane Porter. Great read! My only regret is that I didn't read it immediately after I purchased it last year. From there, I jumped right into Nanny Returns by Emma McLaughlin and Nicola Kraus. I'll continue reading it this afternoon.

This past week I also wrote a mini-review for the last book I read in 2009: And Then Everything Unraveled by Jennifer Sturman. Today I wrote my review for Quick Study by Maggie Barbieri. I have two more reviews to write later this week: The Department of Lost & Found by Allison Winn Scotch and Easy on the Eyes by Jane Porter.

I'm not sure what my next book will be when I finish Nanny Returns. Our January book selection for Barney's Online Book Club is The House on Tradd Street by Karen White, which I'm thrilled about. There's also two library books I want to read before their January 29th due date and I want to read The Love of Her Life by Harriet Evans (I've read great reviews about this book). Decisions, decisions...

Happy Sunday everyone!


  1. I swear, half of my reading decisions are prompted by library due dates! :)

  2. I swear, that is the reason I can't do the library....I just can't handle the pressure of getting them back at a certain time, lol!

  3. Eva & Michele:

    Often I find myself returning books unread. But no more... I'm working on balancing reading library books with reading my own books. It's just that this month both stacks contain "books I really want to read right now" and I can't decide what to read next! Maybe I should just flip a coin...

  4. lol I feel so lucky i worked in the library now so I won't get swamp with over due dates, but I can't seem to find the spot to actually read the books in there.
