Sunday Salon

My reading this week has been scattered. Last Sunday I finished Daphne's Book by Mary Downing Hahn for The Inner Child Weekend and Childhood Favorites Challenge. I haven't finished a book since then. I've been swamped with homework, studying, kids, and being sick. I'm still a little tired but I'm feeling much better.

I'm almost up to date with homework and studying, so I plan on using today to finish The Thirteenth Tale by Diane Setterfield. It's a reread for my online book club, The Well-Read Ladies. I'm loving the discussion we're having.

After The Thirteenth Tale I plan on starting a book of poetry called Language for a New Century. It's an anthology featuring contemporary poets from Asia and the Middle East. I also plan on finally dipping into Delicate Edible Birds by Lauren Groff. It's been killing me that I haven't been able to give it my attention.

With all the assignments and studying I need to accomplish this week, I think I'm going to take a week-long break from blogging. That way I can spend more time focusing on what I love, reading. I hope you have a good week and see you next Sunday.

We will miss you during your break! I really didn't read for fun in high school or college way too much work! I never asked you, what are you going to school for?

Have a great week. I'd love to know what you think of Language for a New Century. I've got it on hold at the library.

Enjoy your break from blogging. Hopefully you'll get a lot of stuff done and get a chance to catch up on your books. I'll be curious to hear about the anthology - sounds good!

Everyone is sick. Terrible business this time of the year. Glad you are feeling a bit better! I loved The Thirteenth Tale. I really want to reread it one of these days. Have a good week!

I have just bought The Thirteenth Tale today from the charity shop - can't wait to read your review.

If I had your schedule, I wouldn't be blogging at all. You are an amazing person! :) Enjoy your break!
