Sunday Salon- The Summer is Ticking Away


I can't believe it's already the middle/nearly the end of August. Where has the summer gone?

Today I'm relaxing as I usually do on Sundays; there's a nice breeze coming in and I'm just soaking in the summer. Reading? Yeah, I'm doing a little of that, too! I've got Dorothea Benton Frank's book Bulls Island going, and I'm really enjoying it. There's a story I should tell you someday about the time a friend and I crashed her table (by mistake!) at a library conference dinner (she was really nice about it), but for now let's just say that I'm glad to be finally getting around to her book. I know it's been out for a while, and there are already several sequels, but hey.

After I'm done with this, and it's going quickly, I'm moving on to The Debba, by Avner Mandelman, an Israeli thriller that came out this spring from the wonderful Other Press. It looks great; I've yet to read anything from Other Press which is anything other than wonderful.

For now I'm going to sip some more iced tea and enjoy the day. I hope you do, too! What are you doing to make it great?
