Sunday Salon - April 1

Happy April Fool's Day! I wish I had some wonderful little prank to play on you but I'm pretty sure that the "Guess what, I'm pregnant" prank won't work the same way on you that it worked on my husband for something like ten years.

I'm excited that Timothy Schaffert's latest, The Coffins of Little Hope, is coming out April 10th in trade paperback. I read this one a year ago and couldn't have enjoyed it more (my review here). Timothy is a great asset to the reading and writing communities on Omaha and throughout Nebraska so I'm happy to see him getting so much great press for this book. Plus, it's published by Unbridled Books and you know how much I love them!

I'm busy working away on Bloggiesta projects still today and anything I've started by end of day today is a commitment I'm making to myself to finish so you may notice some things half-finished and in a state of flux as the week progresses. It may well cut into my reading time - luckily I don't have reviews scheduled this week. What are your reading plans for the week?


  1. Your header is great!
    I'm having some trouble sending comments - not good during a Bloggiesta weekend - so I hope you get this.
    I've just got back to some reading after a break. I've been reading memoirs lately and have just started a Margaret Drabble novel for my book group which I'm finding rather slow-going because of her style of writing.
    The Coffins of Little Hope - an intriguing title!

  2. Happy Bloggiesta! I am thinking about opening up a book right now. or a nap. I got most of my blog chores done (and conveniently forgot the one about cleaning up my google Reader!) I'm sad I didn't get current book done for a clean end to March. Oh well.

  3. just managed to pull off one April Fool's joke.
    I cleaned my blog up a little too.
    I wish there was a way to delete followers who don't followyou anymore.

  4. Love the new photos in your header :)

    I will pick out a book for book club soon, I haven't forgotten about this (I'm excited).

    Have a great week!

  5. Hope Bloggiesta worked well. Your blog header looks great! I need to figure out how to change mine. I just haven't invested the time.

  6. Honestly..I forgot it was April Fools Day!!

  7. I love your new header! I hope you were able to finish everything you wanted to finish during Bloggiesta!
