Sunday Salon

Happy Sunday! If you celebrate Christmas I hope you had a great one, and in any case I hope you had a nice New Year's but that week between Christmas and New Year's is special and now we're at the tail end. I went back to Boston for the holiday and a had a nice visit.

Now I'm back in NYC and settling back in. For the first time in forever I didn't ask for any books for Christmas but I did buy a few here and there; one of my favorite used bookstores, Raven Used Books in Harvard Square, changed locations from a dim basement to a sunny street-level shop and business was brisk when we visited. I picked up an Everyman's Library edition of J.G. Farrell's Troubles and The Siege of Krishnapur in a single volume, and Happy People in Tears, by Joao de Melo, about a large Portuguese family.

I don't know what today holds. I don't even know if I'm having coffee or a cappuccino with my breakfast. But I'll probably be reading. What about you?
