The Sunday Salon: Potpourri Day

**This week I got "caught up"... sort of. I did a review a week, and was caught up for a second. But now I'm behind again and have since finished two more books! So I'll review those this week.

**This morning, I started another book, Jamaica Inn! After seeing it on so many of my challenge lists, I decided I better drop everything else and read it. So I'm a couple of chapters in now, and hope to find lots of time to read it throughout this wonderful Sunday.

**I'm dying to read Brisingr though. I ran out and bought it last week, read the synopsis of the first two books, then hurried and put it down before I was sucked in. Since then it's been begging and pleading with me to read it, BUT I have to read these book fair books first. I don't think I'll be able to hold out much longer though, and perhaps by this time next week I'll be deeply immersed in it!

**Celebrate Banned Books Week this week and go out and read a banned or challenged book! Tons of the best books ever are on the list. So just do it!

** I officially took a book off my nightstand and have declared it a DNF! Yes, I've decided to let A New Earth go for now. Perhaps I'm just not needing to find my life's purpose at the moment. Or maybe I know what it is for now... raise kids, adjust to a new job, read my TBR pile, try to keep the house livable, feed the family, keep all the volunteering jobs going, etc. That's my life's purpose for now. So wow, it feels great to let it go and to not feel the need to finish it at the moment.

** I think that's about all I've got! For Weekly Geeks we are supposed to come up with our favorites so far that's been published this year. I bet my list isn't very big since I tend to read older stuff. Maybe I'll be surprised. Anyway, I'll ponder that today and get back with that list tomorrow.

HAPPY Sunday to all! Read tons!


  1. I need to get ahead of myself so I don't have to think of new posts for a couple of weeks. Haha! I'm so busy with other things that I haven't been able to get on the computer much.

    Sometimes you just have to let a book go. It's not easy for me to give up on a book, but I will if the book and I really aren't a good match.

    I hope you have a great week!

  2. I have a terrible time letting books go and actually finished a book that I hated so much (this weekend) that I couldn't fathom reviewing it. So, I passed it on to a friend who will likely enjoy it. I should have let it go. Good for you, Suey.

  3. Sometimes it's a relief to give up on a book and move on to something more interesting.
