The Sunday Salon: The Treadmill Book is Back!

Yep. I've taken a little treadmill vacation, but no more. The treadmill is back, and along with that, a book to read while walking. My first treadmill book is to finish J. Scott Savage's Farworld: Land Keep. The uncorrected proof version I have of that book is perfect for the treadmill book holder. See, it can't just be any book that's designated as the treadmill book! It's got to work in that holder!

Today I've spent a good chunk of the day reading Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford. This is the book for my "other" book club (the one were I just go but don't lead) coming up in a few weeks. I'm learning much about the Japanese evacuations and round up, in Seattle particularly, during World War II.

Yesterday I finished up The Traveler by John Twelve Hawks. I remember it making quite a buzz a few years ago, but I sure haven't heard about it in recent years. Anyway, it was on my TBR Challenge list, so I decided to get another one of those done, though I think I won't finish my list before the year is over. It was a fun and quite intense SF like I haven't read for a long time.

Coming up in my pile:

Her Fearful Symmetry... because it's due soon at the library

Hide and Seek... for the Wilkie Collins Classic Circuit tour

When you Reach Me... a quick read, also from the library

A review of Tom Sawyer... for my book club

A Fatal Waltz... because it's borrowed and I need to get it back

Maybe something else from the TBR Challenge list


  1. I'm glad you found a good exercise book! I hate how awkward reading books on exercise machines can be. Usually used books are ok, but lately I've had a really hard time finding books that don't constantly shut when I'm on the elliptical. It's one of the reasons I want an e-reader, actually. I feel like reading with that on a machine would be a lot easier.

  2. I keep thinking I need a treadmill so I can read on it... then I'd actually exercise, right?

    Okay so first I would need somewhere to PUT the blasted thing... minor details.

  3. It's amazing how fast the time flies while reading a book on a treadmill. Music helps too, and yes, I can read while the music is blasting.

  4. You are amazing people, listening to music, watching TV are seem easy while exercise on treadmill. Reading book? How do you keep your eyes on the book as your are running. It's hard to focus.
