Sunday Salon


Happy Sunday!

It's been a fun weekend. We had some family in town earlier in the weekend and got to spend some time with them yesterday- nothing outrageous, just some good low-key family time. Today I have to catch up on my NaNoWriMo project (I'm behind by about 4,000 words. How embarrassing.) and go to the gym.

Yesterday I firmed up plans to send my Graphic Novel Giveaway package to Ashley of My Book Blog; congratulations to her and I hope she enjoys the books. I've got some reading set aside as well- I'm still working on Hilary Mantel's wonderful Wolf Hall and a couple of graphic novels I took out from the library. I expect Wolf Hall to take a little while yet, then I'm on to Children of Dust, a memoir about growing up in Pakistan.

Vasilly of 1330V and I are going to do a mini-read-a-thon this coming Wednesday, to try to whittle down our stacks of smaller paperbacks. I'll be starting around 9 am and going until 9 pm, just like during my graphic novel read-a-thon a couple of weeks ago, and probably post twice or three times at the most. Should be fun! :-)

What's up with you today?

I wish you luck on your mini-read-a-thon. I sooo wish I could join in, but Wednesdays are particularly long and miserable at my job. 7am to 11pm with a weird break in the middle to nap. Have a great time, and happy Sunday!

Good luck on your mini readathon! I need to do about one a week, I think! :--)

Vasilly said...

Can't wait to read your thoughts on Wolf Hall. I'm so excited for Wednesday. I have a ton of books to read before then. Happy Sunday.

A whole Wednesday reading? Sounds like heaven! I'll be miserably imprisoned in the office, but reading in spirit!

Oh, and hello *waves* from a newbie blogger :)

Marie, I don't even understand what Sunday Salon is. I have so many books to read, I'm doing a mini-readathon today despite the nice day and my depressed mood (which prob. will never go away)

So envious of the great day you and Vasilly will have Wednesday! As I said on Twitter, with my kids home for Veterans Day, I'll be lucky if I get the paper read.

I hope you had a very productive #nano day today ... I'm still hiding away in my garret, the family thinks I'm nano-ing but I'm taking a 15 minute break :)

Best of luck to you and Vasilly! I need a mini read-a-thon myself...so much I want to read!

Michelle said...

I wish I could join you for the readathon this week but alas I can't. But I will be cheering both you and Natasha on for sure!

You're into these mini read-a-thons now! I think I need to do one.

A mini-readathon sounds fun. I wonder if anyone would notice if I read continually all day at work! :-)

I gave up on doing NaNoWriMo this year, I have too much work, but I hope to do it in a future year. Good luck in your endeavor, i know it's difficult!
