Sunday Salon- Today I *Am* Going to Read!

Every Sunday I talk about what I'm reading but Sunday always ends up being busy and I usually get very little reading time in. Not so today. I've got By Grand Central Station I Sat Down and Wept, a soft pillow and some coffee, and I'm not moving until I'm done with this novella, recommended to me by my friend Michele Filgate of RiverRun Books in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.

Today is the end of the Thanksgiving weekend festivities in my family, a four-day marathon of family, food, shopping and more. The official activities ended this morning at breakfast; in addition to the holiday celebration itself, we had a bunch of relatives visiting Friday through today. Friday night we went shopping and had Thanksgiving dinner leftovers; Saturday my husband and I hosted a brunch and went out shopping afterwards. Saturday night most of us went to see the new Harry Potter movie, which we all enjoyed. I haven't read any of the books nor seen any movies since HP4 but I had no trouble following this one. I enjoyed the way this movie seems to bring together a lot of different threads from the earlier films and the way the story has evolved. I can't wait for the final part!

But now I'm going to get back to my book. Hope you all have a great day!
