The Sunday Salon: The Joy of Reading

Today’s post is super short because I’ve spent much of the weekend reading and when I do that, nothing else gets done. The house is a bit messy, my fridge is sort of on the bare side but that’s okay.

I am reading a slew of books right now:

What the World  Will Look Like When All the Water Leaves Us is  a really great short story collection. I plan to finish it tomorrow since I have another furlough day.

Catching Fire has reminded me how fun it is to read a book just for the pure fun of reading it. It’s the perfect escape book. I sat in my bedroom for several hours today, enjoying every minute of it. I can’t wait to get back to it.

The Perfect 10 Diet has been making the rounds. I’m not reading it to lose weight (although I surely need to). Instead, I am reading it in the attempt to figure out some of my other health issues. It’s one of those books that just make sense and it’s easy to read in spurts so that’s what I’m doing. Reading it in spurts.

At some point I have to start my book club’s pick for this month, True History of the Kelly Gang. I’ll probably start it tomorrow.

Enough of this, back to reading I go.

  1. I bought What the World Will Look Like back in December when I was running amuck at Barnes & Noble. Rebecca raved about it. Who knows when I will get to it, but I am excited to read it.

  2. Oh, I enjoy Suzanne Collins’s books so much (although I do have some qualifying criticisms to make, they are overwhelmed by my general enthusiasm for the series) and can’t wait for the next one to come out. Have you read the works of Kristen Cashore (“Graceling” and “Fire”)? If not, they are definitely ones to read next.

    Meanwhile, I am curious to read what you think of “The True History of the Kelly Gang” – I have had it on my shelf for years, but haven’t gotten to it yet.
