Sunday Salon


I'm not sure what this Sunday holds for me in terms of reading. I'm within twenty pages of finishing The Madonnas of Leningrad, a quick but satisfying (so far) book about a woman who survived the siege of Leningrad, and I'm still working my way through American Wife.

Yesterday my husband and I visited the new Borders Concept Store out in Wareham, Mass., (more on that in a couple of days) and I picked up Midnight's Children, by Salman Rushdie,
because it just won Best of the Booker and I haven't read it, or anything else by Rushdie either. And he's one of those people I feel like I should read. I may even get to it someday! Hey, if it's on my shelf it has a fighting chance, right?

Today we are going out to Hingham, Mass., and a park called World's End, which is featured in Discovering the Boston Harbor Islands, which I was given to review. I've read the book but I want to take a couple of trips before I write my review, because the islands are nearby and I think it would help me write a better review. Next weekend we're going to an author event on one of other islands, and that will bring the grand total I've visited to four.

I hope everyone has a great day!
