Sunday Salon

December 21, 2008


Good afternoon, fellow readers! It is definitely looking more like Christmas around here. We have had about a foot of new snow in the last week, and today is mixed snow and sleet (with predictions for up to 6 more inches of snow by tomorrow).

I got a late start on reading today as I was catching up on email and blog posts; and then made a home health visit to one of my patients who lives near me. But, I’ve settled in to the afternoon now and am just about ready to get on with reading The Eye in the Door, by Pat Barker. This is the second book in her WWI trilogy and I should finish it today. Barker writes well, but I don’t think this novel is as good as Regeneration which I finished earlier this week (read my review). I hope to complete the last book in the trilogy before Christmas…and then I plan on reading something quick and a little less ‘heavy.’

After I finish The Eye in the Door, I will be only TWO BOOKS away from my goal of 100 books for the year.

It is not too late to put your name in for my giveaway of Jan Brett’s wonderful childrens book The Wild Christmas Reindeer. To get a chance to win, email me at with the word “SANTA” in the subject line. I’m closing the contest on TUESDAY, DECEMBER 23rd and will draw the winner on Christmas Eve.

For those of you who celebrate the Christmas season… MERRY CHRISTMAS! If you are celebrating other holidays this month, I wish you the joy of the season. But,  wherever you are  I hope you are warm and enjoying a good book.

Please follow and like the blue thistle

    It seems like everyone’s getting snowed on today (except me – now that would be a news story!). I hope you enjoyed your afternoon of reading.

    We had 10″ of snow here in the Northeast this weekend as well. Great reason to be lazy and relax LOL.

  1. Congrats on making it to 100….I know you can do it! Your weather sounds like ours here in Michigan!!

    Happy Holidays!

    I just wanted to let you know that your advent calendar post about Jan Brett’s books inspired me to buy one for my little cousin. She’s getting ANNIE AND THE WILD ANIMALS for Christmas!

    I know you’ll fit two more books in before the new year !! 100 books is quite an accomplishment.

    Jill: *laughing* Yes, snow if Florida would definitely make headlines!

    Diane: Being snowed in is the PERFECT excuse to do nothing, isn’t it?

    Staci: Thanks for your faith in my ability to reach my goal!! Happy Holidays to you too.

    Memory: Oh, I love that I inspired you to buy a book…thanks for sharing that with me! I hope your little cousin loves it!!

    JoAnn: Thanks for your belief in my ability to reach my reading goal!! This will be the first year I’ll actually have made it to 100!!
