Sunday Salon

This Sunday finds me traveling from New York back home to Massachusetts, following the wedding of a family member. My husband's cousin CeeGee (his initials are C.G. and it's become his nickname) got married to his beautiful girlfriend (now wife) Ariel at a gorgeous country club on Long Island. It was a great party, with family, music and great food- and now we're home.

While we were away I didn't have a lot of time for reading but I managed to sneak in a quick graphic novel (more on that tomorrow), and I've been working my way through Kathleen Norris's The Cloister Walk, for my book club, and The Last Chicken in America, Ellen Litman's short story collection about the Russian-Jewish immigrant experience in present-day Pittsburgh. Litman's book is very, very good and I look forward to reviewing it soon and telling you all more about it. The Last Chicken is one of the books I want to sell at my library's upcoming book fair and it's a book I'm very excited about.

What are you excited about this week?
