Sunday Salon ... on Monday

I have been a bit lazy the past two weeks about posting. I missed last weeks Sunday Salon and missed yesterday's! You get it a day late this week. 

The past two weeks have been pretty busy with the end of school coming quickly and the finishing up of books to read and review. I got all of them done and posted and am now reading books that have been on my night stand for years! I am reading a Douglas Preston book that I bought probably 2 years ago on sale at B&N. I am half way through it and wondering why I put it off for so long. It is the perfect book to get in the mood for fun summer reading.

Recent reviews (in case you missed):

Afraid by Jack Kilborne
The Strain by Guillermo del Toro and Chuck Hogan
Plum Spooky by Janet Evanovich

Nothing! No books this week. I am off to Borders right now, though, to go and use my 40% coupon. What to get?


Yvonne of Socrates Book Reviews and Jennifer of Just Jennifer Reading have given me the Lemonade Award. 

Thank you ladies! I will try to pass this one at a later time when I am not rushing to get out the door.

Hope everyone enjoys their Monday!


  1. Congrats on a well deserved award!

  2. I fell behind on my posts the last few days, too. I plan to get caught up by this time next week. Holiday weekends tend to mess with me!

  3. Happy Shopping! It is nice to pull a book from our own shelf sometimes and read it. :)

  4. RL should come before blogging, otherwise there's a problem!

    I think I need to try Janet Evanovich sometime. I'm beginning to think there's a great gap in my literary education.

  5. Sadako- Thanks! :)

    LuAnn-Yup. Holiday weekends are great. Very hard to get up to go to work after a 3 day weekend.

    Toni- It was happy shopping. I came home with a book and a Wii! You know where my time has been spent. :)

    Black Sheep- Always! Of course, now RL will be filled with Wii and Guitar Hero. We broke down and got one this weekend. Janet Evanovich books are fun but after 14 books read one right after gets old.

  6. Hey, stopped by to let you know you won my bookmarks giveaway! Email me your postal address and I'll get them out to you today.

  7. I hope you got something good with your coupon! I forgot to use mine this weekend, and I've been kicking myself ever since!

  8. Jeane- Thanks!

    jspeyton- I did! Sloppy Firsts by Megan McCafferty. Want to start it now!

  9. Congratulations on your award. it's really lovely, isn't it?

  10. Thanks, lilly, it is a very sweet award. :)

  11. I've done that too -- had a book for years and never read it and then finally read it and think "DARN .. I've been missing out on this all this time!"

    And I think we have a 40% coupon to use too ... must check into that!!! Thanks for the reminder!

  12. Jenners- Lately I have been doing that a lot. I still have A Thousand Splendid Suns to read that I got for Christmas 2 years ago, too. There are a couple others there as well.


Thanks for taking the time to comment! :)
