Sunday Salon #10 & Library Loot
School starts for me tomorrow, although the students don't return until Thursday. I'm still in the process of paperwork, paperwork, paperwork on my new town home, so I'm thinking ahead to my long commute over the next week, or two, or three (man I hope it's not three). Since I'm back to my "real life" here, that also means I'm back to my wonderful library here. (Did I mention that the library situation in my county was my #1 reason for wanting to stay in the area? We have the BEST library. My realtor also said that it was his first time ever having someone say they wanted to live somewhere...because of a library. I'm glad I could be the first!)
Having said all this about the many things up in the air right now in my life, I made a trip to my local library to check out a few books. First, I picked up The House of the Scorpion, which was a book I started while in Hawaii, but never finished. I actually am listening to this on audiobook and am NOT thrilled with the reader. He sounds like the guy off of reading rainbow! Other than the bizarre reader, the book is pretty interesting with its themes of cloning and advanced science.
Next, I checked out the next two in the Princess Diaries series. If you'll remember, I'm still trying to read the entire series so that I can read Princess Mia's novel, Ransom My Heart.
Other than the books I've checked out, I'm STILL reading The Grand Sophy, by Georgette Heyer, and a couple other Pride and Prejudice sequels/retellings that I received from Sourcebooks. Honestly, when things settle down a bit more, I know I'll be reading much more than I am. I can't wait. Sigh. So, my Sunday Salon does not really exist right now, but I'm dreaming of when I'll be in my place and can truly relax and get into my stack of reading. Anyone else heading back to school, back to work, or some other excitement this week?
