Sunday Salon

So it's a beautiful day here in Boston and what have I been doing with it?

Well I went to the gym, and then to a local mall to spend a gift certificate at a cooking store, and now I'm home with a cappuccino and some time on my hands.

First of all, thank you so much to Karen Harrington, author of Janeology and of the wonderful Scobberlotch blog, for the great giveaway she ran during her "Bookaversary" week- and the great prize pack I won, a copy of Janeology and a beautiful leatherbound notebook, for my own novel-in-progress. I don't really have a novel-in-progress, but maybe I should. I was actually thinking about using the book to take notes for a memoir, but that's another story for another day.

If you haven't been to Karen's blog, you really need to go- now. She's one of my favorite bloggers and I can't wait to read the book. I don't know if I can review it objectively though- we'll see!

I'm also working on a couple of posts for next week, about the Book Buddy II reading accessory and about a couple of books.

My dragon quilt is coming along; I have all four dragons pieced and I've started piecing the borders. I'll show you a picture of the finished quilt top in the next couple of weeks.

Finally, congratulations to all those hardy Readathon participants. I think I would end up divorced if I decided to read for 24 hours straight (unless I could persuade my husband to join me!) but I'd love to participate in an abbreviated version next time.

What are you working on this week?

You can read more Sunday Salon posts here.

I won a copy of Janeology from Karen, too. Maybe I'll get mine soon since yours came. I'm working on a Book Buddy review as well. I love it!

BermudaOnion, me too! It's awesome. I just need to take a couple more pictures.

Yeah, I would end up divorced if I joined the readathon too...which is why I didn't!

I've been seeing a lot of reviews of the Book Buddy accessory, and I think I want one! Yes, my husband would probably think I'd gone completely nuts if I said I was going to read for 24 hours straight. But over the years, he's learned to expect weird ideas from me.
