Sunday Salon-December's Goals

Here we are again, another Sunday, another Sunday Salon. It's been another busy bookish week for me; I went to the Salman Rushdie reading at Harvard Book Store on Monday, skipped a bunch of things midweek while I was shuttling between doctor's appointments for my latest foot injury, wound up at Paul Murray's reading for Skippy Dies at Brookline Booksmith on Friday and then on to the Harvard Book Store's semi-annual warehouse sale yesterday morning. Whew! And of course I came back with some good stuff from the warehouse sale!

And then there's reading. I wrapped up Russo-Biblio-Extravaganza and started my December project, reading through the 2010 releases I haven't read yet but have been meaning to get to. I started off strong with The Swimming Pool, an April release by Holly LeCraw, which I read in two days and could barely put down. I'm deep into David Grossman's To the End of the Land now and I expect that will take me a little while.

Some other titles I hope to get to this month:
From the Land of the Moon, by Milena Agus,
Union Atlantic, by Adam Haslett,
The Same River Twice, by Ted Mooney,
Room, by Emma Donoghue,
Russian Winter, by Daphne Kalotay,
Super Sad True Love Story, by Gary Shteyngart,
Sunset Park, by Paul Auster,
and more. I'm giving myself through January for this because there are just so many.

But today I'm going to continue with the Grossman and just try to chill out a little! Hope you have a great Sunday!

More Sunday Salon here.
