The Sunday Salon

What a week! I have finally taken the plunge into blogging. I have wanted to do it for some time but did not have the time to update and keep current until now. I am overwhelmed by how many blogs are out there and find myself reading them instead of the mounting tbr pile I have.

This was not a good reading week for me due to work conflicts. I did start Middlemarch for a group reads group over on Librarything. I have to say that I was disappointed when I started it but now am at a point where I am starting to enjoy it. I was in agreement with all those who were calling it Muddlemarch.

I am about half way into World Without End by Ken Follett which I am listening to on audio. Very enjoyable so far. I hope to finish it this week as I have a long road trip to Ohio, Indiana and Wisconsin for work. I will have to download a few others just in case!

I entered my first contest from Amater de Livre's blog and won The Poetry of Murder! How exciting.

I am off now to finish my last load of laundry, go for a motorcycle ride with my hubby and then hope to get some serious reading time in today. Have a good week everyone!

Welcome to Blog World! It looks as if you are navigating around quite well already, having plunged right into The Sunday Salon! One of my favorite places to get ideas is at semicolonblog.com. Her Saturday Review of Books is for anyone to link to reviews they've written, and I pick up a good number of books to add to my TBR list each week!

Sorry, that was from me at SmallWorld

I know exactly what you mean about spending more time reading blogs than actual TBR books. I've fallen into that trap a few times now.

Congratulations on your book win! It's so fun to win a free book, isn't it?

I hope you have a great week.

Welcome to the Salon and to the world of blogging. I think at times we all feel that there is just so much out there that we'll be overwhelmed; the secret is just to enjoy it when you can and not feel guilty if you can't do as much as you would like. Do keep going with 'Middlemarch'. It definitely repays the effort.

Yes, blog reading/writing can be very time consuming and addictive. But great fun - and you meet lots of really nice, helpful people with the same interests and passions. Hope you go on enjoying the new experience - welcome to the blogosphere!

I recently finished listening to the CDs of WORLD WITHOUT END

I'll be interested to know if your opinion coincides with mine

Welcome to the world of book blogging. I often find myself spending more time reading others blogs than actual books but I can't seem to stay away.
