Sunday Salon-More Snow!

So it's Sunday again and it's snowing- again. I swear I didn't see this in the forecast!

Oh well. The plan for today is pretty simple- go to the gym and come home to read. I had a feeling something was going on today but I can't remember it now. It is Oscar night, so I'll be posting a wrap up tomorrow on my movie blog. This week I reviewed Oscar-nominated True Grit and the classic French film Les Enfants du Paradis.

Reading? I'm participating in Persephone Reading Weekend by reading Reuben Sachs, a Victorian novel and satire by Amy Levy, a writer who committed suicide at 27. I'm enjoying it; it's very much a book of its time in terms of language and style (it was originally published in 1888) and the family dynamics she illustrates are fascinating. More later! I'm still working my way through The Hottest Dishes of the Tartar Cuisine, Alina Bronsky's latest novel from Europa Editions due out in May. I have to write interview questions for her and two other authors by tomorrow.

I guess that's it for now. Short and sweet! Have a great Sunday. More Sunday Salon here.
