Sunday Salon - I'm Back Here Somewhere

So last week I wrote all my blog posts for the week over the weekend and that worked well so I'm trying it again this week. Work is keeping me on my toes but so far I'm able to get things done. Last week seemed incredibly busy- I think I was out every night for something- and I'm hoping that this week will be a little more laid-back. I would like, for example, to come home after work and be able to just relax! We'll see.

Reading? I've been reading review books this month but alternating between review books and "me" books to make progress on both sides of the shelf, so to speak. And to not feel depressed that most of the review books I've been reading are turkeys. I finished Season of Water and Ice, by Donald Lystra, which is an oh-kay teen angst book. I got it for review almost a year ago (I'm not that far behind on everything!) and I read it quickly. These days coming of age stories have to be pretty special to hold my attention and this one is holding it, but barely. This is another one of those that I think a lot of people would like a lot more than I do not because it's not good but because I'm just being cranky or something. So I started Igino Ugo Tarchetti's Fosca, a love story set in 19th century Italy, as my new "me" book.  So far so good!

What are you up to today? I hope you have a great Sunday. More Sunday Salon here.
