Sunday Salon- Happy Boxing Day
I'm still working through To the End of the Land, by David Grossman, a wonderful book that's just a very leisurely read. I got a bunch of new books under the tree; I'll have a full report on Friday but among the treasures were signed first editions of Margaret Atwood's The Handmaid's Tale and Negotiating with the Dead: A Writer on Writing, and a first edition (not signed) of Truman Capote's Breakfast at Tiffany's. I'm going to find a special place for each.
The holiday itself was pretty laid-back. Jeff and I opened presents at home in the morning and then headed out to his parents' house nearby for the day. It was a small crowd but a nice party capped with a spectacular dinner cooked by my mother-in-law. Now it's time to get to that relaxing thing.
Update: Congratulations to Natasha, who won my Christmas giveaway of From the Land of the Moon. I'll be shipping your book off to Malaysia soon! Thanks to all who entered. I used Random.org to select her as the winner.
Have a great Sunday! More Sunday Salon here.
