Sunday Post #1 and Sunday Salon #1
I don't usually post on Sundays, but in my book blog wandering this week I discovered these two related memes and thought I'd participate. It's an opportunity to add a personal note to the blog and give a peek into what's going on in my life as well as whatever bookish things I want to share. The Sunday Post is hosted by Caffeinated Reviewer and the Sunday Salon is hosted by ReaderBuzz. Wander over and see what other bloggers have to share.
I live in Seattle, and last week has continued the extraordinarily wet spring we're having. Lots. of. rain. So, I found myself rededicating myself to my blog and working to fix a couple of glitches I've noticed. For example, I'm hosted on Wix and spent a day cleaning up links and duplicate photos in the Wix folders. That was NOT a good idea because I discovered that everywhere I deleted a duplicate book cover photo, that picture disappeared on the blog. It will take me weeks to restore that mistake! Sigh.
With the Memorial Day holiday Monday, and I don't work Fridays, it was a nice short 3-day work week. However, Friday morning I had to go to the dentist for a crown so I tried to listen to a podcast but sometimes the sound of the drill drowned out the voices. I'm glad I wasn't listening to a book!
I only finished two books last week, but one was a doosey! Historical fiction: The Women of Chateau Lafayette - the review will be up next week. The other is an ARC, The Lost #3, and the review will be up soon.
ON THE BLOG
Last week on the blog I posted two reviews (click the picture to go to the post)
Tuesday I joined the Top Ten Tuesday clan sharing my favorite Comfort Reads:
It was interesting to pause for a minute and think about what constitutes a comfort read for me. What's my criteria? Then it was pretty easy to come up with books representing that.
What's your idea of a comfort read?
I shared some tips about starting a virtual book club - many of these ideas work with an in-person book club too. And, last but not least, I posted about 10 books that I've recently added to my TBR and included that with the new-to-me link to Stacking the Shelves.
COMING NEXT WEEK (if I'm lucky):
I have the review of the terrific The Women of Chateau Lafayette coming up. We have company coming from Salt Lake City, so I may not get a lot more done though I'm currently reading Ariadne so I may get a review for that posted.
Is there something else you'd like to see in a weekly or bi-weekly wrap up? Some burning questions?
