The Sunday Salon: Plugging Along

I've been working really hard this weekend to finish Man and Wife. I hit a major slump with it there in the middle but the end has picked up quite a bit. It's possible I may have it finished by the end of the day, but I wouldn't hold my breath or anything either.

Then I really need to concentrate on Blink for book club this week. Interesting stuff in that book, but still, it makes me sleepy to read about it!

THEN, I'll be onto The Lace Reader, which I'll bump up before everything else at that point.

So.. this week I've finished absolutely nothing. How many of you go a week with nothing at all to review on your blog? (Well, I guess I did finish Rapunzel's Revenge last Sunday and reviewed it at the beginning of the week... that feels like forever ago!)
I have another book club this week (because of Thanksgiving, both F2F book clubs that I participate in ended up on the same, huh!) and for that one we'll be discussing John Green's books... and anything else YA related that interests us. I hope it turns out to be a good discussion. I'm a little nervous, but you know, that's normal.

The only thing that's really changed with What The Family is Reading is that Toto (9 years old) is nearly done with Stormbreaker by Anthony Horowitz. It's a little old for her, but that's what the upper grades are reading for the principal's monthly book club at school and she hasn't participated yet, so I told her to go for it this time. She seems to have loved it, even if the subject matter is a bit more than she's been used to.

Oh, and Moder, who moans around about "there's no good books" all time, finally picked up Elantris by Brandon Sanderson from off my TBR pile and it actually seems to be holding his attention. Yeah for that!

That's all I've got today. I can't ramble on too much since I did the "rambly" post a few days ago. We can't have two ramblys in a row, right!


  1. Blink's been on my radar again recently. I'll be curious to know what you think of it when you are all done. The Lace Reader is supposed to be really good. I'm looking forward to reading that one.

    I need to settle in with my book soon or I might not get any reading in today. Why am I still on the computer? ;-)

  2. Wow. Talk about a timely post. I'm just in the process of writing a post about how I'm in a reading slump. So I feel ya. Truly.

  3. My reading habits really go up and down a lot. Some weeks I can devour two-three books and during other periods I can barely manage to read a single one in a month. So having a mid-week slump, well, I don't think that is too bad ;o) I myself did not finish anything this week either, so I am not sure I am going to do the Sunday Salon anyway, as it will just be the same chit chat as last week :o)


  4. I'm down to maybe a book a week right now, it's pretty bad. Lucky for me, my blog is not called "It's All About Books"! I should be reading (or sewing) right now so I have something to blog. Instead, I'm blogging!

  5. I haven't read any of those books...but I'm glad to see the Lace Reader has moved up your list.
