Sunday Salon - Happy Happy, Merry Merry!

It's been a long month and I'm only halfway through. 

Yesterday I finished my series of posts for Jewish Book Month, almost all books that I've read in the past few years. It was a lot of fun to go through my old reviews and see what sounded good for each category. Lots of books can fit multiple categories, of course. In other news my Yiddish class is over and I'm looking forward to taking a class where I can actually learn more of the language later this winter. I haven't signed up for anything yet- I'm waiting on some money to be refunded from a vacation I didn't get to take- but hopefully that will come through soon.

Jewish Book Month was a lot of fun like I said and it was nice to have things to post about while I was reading The Covenant of Water, which I have at long last finished. Tomorrow I'll have a post about what I'm reading now, and we will get back to my (ir)regularly scheduled ramblings. Covenant comes out in May; should I do a sneak preview review now? Let me know in the comments.

Last weekend my family made its annual outing to Stockbridge, Mass., and the Red Lion Inn. My husband and I did our usual thing and hit all the bookstores in the area, at least the ones we know about. They were all still there from last year which was nice. Any time someone tells me bookstores are "going away" I'm like, well when was the last time you shopped at one? Maybe get off Amazon for a half second pal.

The Stockbridge Public Library had a cute walk-through display of Christmas trees decorated by local businesses. Here is theirs:

See, it's got books on it. So cute. We visited bookstores in Stockbridge, Great Barrington, Hillsdale and more. I'm trying to remember them all. Great Barrington has several all by itself. Stockbridge has a cute cafe/bookstore in its tiny town center and Hillsdale has the always-fun Rodgers Book Barn. But I'll do a separate post on what I bought and where it came from. 

That's all for me for now. Have a great Sunday and a great week, too. Happy Hanukkah!
