The Sunday Salon - 7th - 13th February 2011

The last week has been an odd one. I have settled into my new job reasonably well and as such I have no stresses of my previous job and I have more time for reading. I also developed my 4th cold since November so am pretty grumpy!

Last weekend I posted in support of keeping libraries open and as I walk past the library on the way to and from work I had no excuse to prevent me from calling in on one of their two late nights. After having my card reactivated, it had more than 18 months since I had used the library, shame on me! I left with 4 books, out of a possible 12. I am likely to make it a regular stop on the way home on a Monday. I am currently three quarters through the biggest read of them all - The Distant Hours by Kate Moreton.

  • An Incomplete Revenge, A Maisie Dobbs Mystery by Jacqueline Winspear
  • Messenger of Truth, A Maisie Dobbs Mystery by Jacqueline Winspear
  • Trade Winds by Christina Courtnay
  • The Distant Hours by Kate Morton - current read

  • I also finished reading A Place of Secrets by Rachel Hore and you can read the review here and I am still reading the wonderful The Girl on the Wall: One Life's rich Tapestry by Jean Baggott.

    I am in the middle of the book review for the Autobiographical Recollections of John Bowring that I read for both the historical and Victorian book challenges. It is taking time as it also connects to my own ancestry.

    I am still looking for a book group that I can join, either online or in my locality. A tweet on twitter did not yield any, which is disappointing.

    I came across an interesting thread recently about book lists and online cataloguing and really must get around to making a suitable post. Certainly since my job change I have much more me and family time and tend to put it to good use.

    Have a good week everyone!
