Sunday Salon - May 23

I can't tell you how happy I am to be done with last week! Loads of reading to be done--to the point where it ceased to be fun. Until Friday when I sat down with "Letter to My Daughter," by George Bishop, which I flew through. This week I'm finishing up Jennifer McMahon's latest, "Dismantled." I read "Promise Not To Tell," by McMahon, and thoroughly enjoyed it and got this one without a clue what it was about. So far, so good. When I looked it up on, I thought it was funny that in the section of "people who bought this, also bought this," the other books included "The Forgotten Garden" by Kate Morton and Chelsea Cain's "Evil At Heart." How different are those two books?!
It will be another busy week with Mini-me's graduation and party on Saturday. The house is starting to shape up--thanks to the Big Guy who really chipped in yesterday, rather unexpectedly. Not to say that he doesn't help out around here. It just isn't always the things I need done or on the timetable I'm working on! I can't wait for the weekend to be here--so excited for Mini-me and I can't wait to relax, finally, with my family.

Mini-me is currently reading E. L. Doctorow's "Ragtime" and chomping at the bit for "The Road" to come out on DVD this week. He's heading off to college this fall to study studio art and history but I would not be the least bit surprised to see him work in quite a few literature classes. If so, I might just have to read along with him--what fun!


  1. Congratulations to your son! It sounds like you have raised quite a great young man...and a reader, which is excellent. I can only hope that my sons will love reading when they get older. I'm working on it!

  2. Wish youy happy read along with the literature and history classes!

  3. My kids are readers too...isn't it just wonderful? I hope that this is a good week for you and that you get lots of fun reading time in!!

  4. Congratulations to you and your son on his graduation! It takes a mom's help to get there that's for sure... ;)

  5. Whenever we have a dinner or BBQ planned, The Hub always chooses to do the most ridiculous chores. I'll ask him to hose down the patio and he'll re-arrange his toolbox or dust off the mailbox.

  6. Congratulations to your son on graduation! And then he's off to college in September. What fun for him...and difficult for you? That would be cool if you read some of the same books he's reading!
    I hope you have nice weather for Saturday. It sounds like you have a nice day planned.

    I haven't read anything by Jennifer McMahon yet, I'm going to check it out. I think The Forgotten Garden and Evil at Heart are quite different. Oh well!

    I hope your week isn't too crazy! Enjoy your books!
