Sunday Salon


It's a steamy 90+ degrees in Cambridge today, so I think it will be a great day to stay inside with the central air conditioning and some good books. I'm still working on The Genizah at the House of Shepher, which I'm really enjoying, and this week has brought some new books into the house:
  • Love Marriage, by V.V. Ganeshananthan, via Bookmooch, which I started and am liking a lot,
  • When You Are Engulfed in Flames, by longtime favorite David Sedaris, and
  • Matrimony, from author Joshua Henkin, which I will start as soon as I've finished one of the books I have going now.
I was extremely disappointed to learn that Sedaris was in Cambridge doing a reading not a mile from my house on the very night when I was out at another bookstore buying his book. He'll be back in Boston in October though, and I'll try to catch him then.

Otherwise I'd like to do some quilting this afternoon, and maybe some TV-watching. There is a Reno911! marathon on Comedy Central today and my television tastes are less highbrow than my reading tastes! You know, lest you think I'm all stuffy and don't know how to have fun.
