Sunday Salon- Not Much Going On

Well it's Sunday again and I'm glad to be off my feet! St. Patrick's Day was fun but it's good to be home and getting a little relaxing time. Jeff is making oatmeal for breakfast and I plan a good long lie-in with some old Portlandia episodes and some tea.

Reading-wise, I'm deep into China MiƩville's latest book Railsea, coming out in May. I got the egalley version, which I rarely do; I only get egalleys if the print galley is unavailable and I'm willing to drop everything else and read it right away. That almost never happens! The book is interesting and dense; the plot is moving very slowly but it is moving. I'm also reading James Hamilton-Paterson's comic Cooking with Fernet Branca, about a pair of mismatched neighbors in rural Tuscany. It's a fun book.

I'm not sure what today will hold. I almost didn't bother doing a Sunday Salon today because I don't have too much to say. My family is doing a delayed St. Patrick's Day dinner, delayed because I worked last evening, and that should be fun. Otherwise I'm doing some errands and seeing some friends. I'm not sure there will be time to read until much later tonight!

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