Sunday Salon


It's been another good week in books.

I'm more or less out of books to donate right now which is good- it means the Little Free Libraries in my town are stocked with my read and/or unwanted ARCs and the local used bookstore got a few things too. I do have a box to mail to a friend who runs a LFL in her town though. Gotta get on that tomorrow.

I finished David Grossman's latest, More Than I Love My Life, which did not disappoint. I will post a review sometime this week. Next up will be a short book from the short book pile; I'm not sure what I'm going to choose. 

I'm enjoying the heck out of Robert K. Massie's Catherine the Great. I wish I had read this sooner!

And I'm choosing books to take on vacation with me in the next couple of weeks. That's always a fun process. So far I'm leaning towards Zac Bissonnette's A Killing in Costumes and the next Angela Thirkell Bartsetshire novel in the series, Summer Half. There will be a bookstore or two available to me on my travels so of course I won't run out. I'll tell you more about my trip later. 

We are looking forward to the Fourth of July holiday next week and fireworks and food and all that good stuff. Unfortunately we won't get to visit with family over the holiday as usual but we will see them later. This isn't COVID related; it's just a "because reasons" situation. But I am positive we are going to have a great Fourth nonetheless.

I hope you do, too!

Hi, Marie! I didn't realize you were blogging again. Catherine the Great has been on my TBR for at least a decade, so I'm very happy to hear you're enjoying it. I've also read the first couple of Angela Thirkell's Barsetshire series and will get back to them eventually.

Deb at Readerbuzz has the Sunday Salon link-up on her blog. She usually posts it on Saturday.
