Sunday Salon - A Busy Sunday

It's been quite a week. I'm finishing up my week at the bookstore today. I don't know what more to say about that. It's been very busy and interesting!

I'm still reading Victor Lavalle's Big Machine, a truly strange science fiction-horror-who knows book about a recovering addict and cult member who is drafted into a secret society. I've been listening to the audio version of Tina Fey's Bossypants during my commutes; I like that one a lot and look forward to finishing it up this week. It's really short for an audio, only 5 hours or so- perfect for a week of commuting. I also started Jennifer Donnelly's Revolution last week, which is a slow read for me but enjoyable I suppose. It has a lot of teen angst, not my favorite subject. I don't think I'm going to have much time for reading today.

After these (after I either finish or put them down), I'm going to dive into this month's Europa Editions books for the challenge, Beryl Bainbridge's The Girl in the Polka Dot Dress and something else. I hope you're having a great Sunday.

More Sunday Salon here.

OMG I loved Bossypants. It is a really quick, really enjoyable audio. As far as Revolution, yes there is serious angst at first, but she starts to forget about it once she is diverted by cool stuff in Paris. Hang in there. I loved that book on audio.

I loved Bossypants too, and am glad that you are enjoying it. To be honest, I have sort of stayed away from Revolution because of the angst that I had read so much about. It's hard to read about it at the same time I am living it, you know? I will be eager to see what your final thoughts on it will be. Have a great Sunday, Marie!

How are you doing at the bookstore? Used to standing all day yet? That's what always wore me out, but time passes quickly when you're surrounded by books!

Have a great week!
