Sunday Salon

Good Sunday Morning and Happy Father's Day! It is storming outside so what a perfect day to stay indoors curled up with a good book. My husband is gone for the day golfing with his dad and I have the whole house to myself. Yay!

I finished up The Gargoyle this week by Andrew Davidson and loved it. I will have a review up today. This book is in my top 5 for 2008. The subject matter is far fetched but underneath it all is a beautiful love story.

I have several books waiting to be read this week that are up for review and I still have my bookclub book The Tea Rose waiting to be read. I will be out of town this week so I will miss out on the bookclub discussion but still want to read this. At least the pressure is off!

Today I will most likely start The Dangerous Joys of Dr. Sex by Pagan Kennedy and The Aviary Gate. We'll see how those two work out. I was reading at a steady pace this year until May and everything went downhill because of work. My travel schedule has let up a bit but not much. I will be gone for four days this week visiting lovely Pittsburgh for work.

Well that's it for today folks. I am off to change the laundry and take a Claritin and then will grab a book and enjoy the day. I wish you all a good reading week and Happy Father's Day!

I am looking forward to reading The Gargoyle. I am glad to hear you enjoyed it.

My reading seems to be picking up some this month, which I am grateful for considering how many books I need to review--and also because I seem to be happier when my reading is in an upswing.

I hope you have a great week. Have a safe and enjoyable trip!

Glad to hear that you liked The Gargoyle so much. I have that one in my TBR pile too and its one that I've been looking forward to. Even more so now that people I "know" are posting postive views on it. =)

Hope that you have a fun and safe trip...I really like travelling (even if its for work) because I love all the reading time it gives the airport...on the the hotel. ;-)

Gargoyle sounds like it was very good.

I like being inside curled up with a good book when it is storming outside :)

I've got a request in for The Gargoyle, and from what everyone's been saying, I hope it makes its way here!

My Journey Through Reading... said...

Thank you all for the comments.

Literary Feline - I hope my reading picks up soon, I am so behind.

Irish - I think you will like The Gargoyle based on some of your other reading.

John - yes, The Dangerous Joys of Dr. Sex by Pagan Kennedy. It's nonfiction and short stories. I haven't started it yet but it sounds interesting.

Naida- well the day cleared up so then I felt guilty curled up with a book. I hate when that happens!

Tapestry - I hope you receive a copy as well. I think you would like this one.
