Sunday Salon - September 13th

I wish I could say I've gotten a lot of reading done in the past week, but sadly, I haven't. On the heals of the H1N1 outbreak at my house, I caught a cold and missed another day of work which I spent sleeping. I am almost done with The Red Tent. I had it sitting out yesterday and my dad mentioned that he'd heard of it and was interested in reading it. I'm thinking that it's more a book my mom would enjoy, but what do you think? Would a man enjoy this one?

I've got several awards I'm remiss in not getting posted and passed on but that'll have to wait until later this week. My middle child is anxious for me to get off the computer and scratch his head. He's something of a cat in that way--I sometimes think I can hear him purring! I'd put him off but it's also the time that we get in our best chats. And anytime you can get a seventeen-year-old to open up, it's a good thing!


  1. Ugh! Of all the bad luck! I do hope you are feeling better now.

    Your dad might like The Red Tent. My dad's really into J.D. Robb's In Death series and I never would have thought that could happen.

    I hope you have a great week!

  2. Hey If your dad doesn't like it he can always put it down.
    I personally read quite a bit of "chick" fiction as well as "man" stuff, when it come down to it what matters is how good the story is.

    Don't spend to much time malingering with your lad, I am sure there is some work you should be doing. :)

  3. The Red Tent is definitely a female-based story, but a man might enjoy it. It might seems fascinating to him!

  4. H1N1! I must have missed that post! Did you mention it? I'm glad everyone is okay.

  5. Feel better! And congrats on those awards!! I've never read The Red Tent but I've heard about it and don't see why a man couldn't enjoy it (perhaps his differing point of view will make for a good chat about the book). Cheers!

  6. If he does read The Red Tent I think it would be really interesting to hear about his perspective. I read it recently and really didn't like it at first but ended up becoming completely drawn into it after the first 50 pages or so...
