Sunday Salon: Changes Afoot, At Least For Now

So, now I'm that I'm pretty busy, at least for the time being, with the whole work thing, there will probably be some changes on the blog. I've had pre-planned content for the last two weeks but that's all used up; for the next couple of months I'll be posting somewhat less frequently and probably getting around to visiting you all and commenting less. I'll do the best I can but don't be surprised if you see a little less of me.

Having said that, I plan to spend some time today working on some reviews for the upcoming week. But that's the thing- pretty much all the time I'll have for writing reviews and other features for the blog will be on the weekends. I might be able to squeak out a little now and then during the week, but not much.

So for today, I'm planning to write a couple of book reviews and do a little reading. I'm reading The Three Weissmanns of Westport, by Cathleen Schine, which is not high literature but is a fun-ish light read, a takeoff on Sense and Sensibility. I decided to read it because the book I've been working on is also a Jane Austen update and I wanted to see how someone else tackled the same idea. Mine isn't S&S but I'm curious nonetheless to see how another writer interprets Austen for a modern audience. It's a fun read and I hope mine will be, too, when it's finally done. Schine has made some changes, of course, in the specifics of the structure but I like it. I'm reading this for review and hopefully I'll have something by next week.

What are you reading today? I hope you have a great Sunday.
