Thoughts on books, family, and life in one impressive package.
The Sunday Salon Button

Go Pack Go!! That is all.

Do you remember when I waxed poetic on a little novel called The Heroine’s Bookshelf by Erin Blakemore? (Have you read it yet? If not, you really need to do so.) Ms. Blakemore is celebrating book love during the month of February and hosting Heroine Love! Starting February 1st, she will have guest posts from twelve different bloggers celebrating literary heroines. She is even offering over 30+ amazing prizes. If you haven’t already checked out Ms. Blakemore’s blog, I highly suggest you do so every day through February 18th and celebrate Heroine Love!

I spent a delightful morning putting together my brand-new bookshelf! It was much needed, as all of the books on there were hidden in closets. Now, they are proudly displayed and leave me room for SO much more. Yay!

My lovely new bookshelf!

While moving my books out of my closet and onto their new home, I came across seven books that I no longer want/need. If anyone is interested in taking any one of these off my hands, please send me an e-mail and let me know. This is going to be on a first-come, first-serve basis. Thanks!

It’s been another busy week at work and at home. The extra duties from the “promotion” have definitely started, and it is not unusual for me to put in at least ten hours at work these days and all but skipping lunch at the same time. I don’t like it, but until I can get some help, this is my life for the next few months. In spite of that, I still managed to finish three books this week – The Bells by Richard Harvell, Still Missing by Chevy Stevens, and The Invisible Line by Daniel J. Sharfstein.  Those reviews will post towards the middle of the month.

I did manage to post reviews for Ida Lichter’s Muslim Women Reformers, John Green’s Paper Towns, Frederick Reuss’ A Geography of Secrets, and Jeffrey Stepakoff’s Fireworks Over Toccoa. I also announced the winners of my bloggiversary and updated everyone on my weight loss progress.  Like I said, I’ve been busy.

I hope to get some extra reading time in this weekend, as Jim and I head down to New Orleans for Jim to participate in his very first marathon. We’re driving down with friends, one of whom is also running in the race, so I hope that the twenty-four hours in the car will afford me some quality reading time. It all depends on how chatty everyone is, I guess.

With that, I need to get some things finished before I go to war against my husband, the Steelers fan that he is. We were getting plenty of smiles and laughs in the grocery store this morning as we proudly wore our individual jerseys (mine is Clay Matthews while his is Troy Polamalu). It is going to be a tense evening. Here’s hoping the commercials are good enough to lighten the mood! May the best team win (and that means the Packers, of course)!

Have a great Sunday and happy reading, or football watching!
