This is the first time I’ve ever pre-written and scheduled a Sunday Salon post, but as I’m traveling again this week (I’ll be gone for over a week), and I didn’t get to do a Sunday Salon post last week because of traveling, I wanted to make sure I got at least one in there! I’ll also be traveling for the next two weekends, so there may be another pre-scheduled Sunday Salon post wedged in there.
I do enjoy traveling, but I have to say it will be awhile before the travel bug starts biting at me again. I feel like this year has just been go, go, go, and with the stress of school, I was really looking forward to a break. Unfortunately, I’m traveling pretty much non-stop through Labor Day weekend, but after that I have nothing planned until Thanksgiving. I’ll have some people coming to visit, but at least I don’t have to be the one doing the traveling!
Since school has ended, I’ve noticed my audiobook progress has slowed down drastically. While before I could easily finish one per week, now that I’m not driving 45 minutes each way to campus, it’s taking me a little longer to get through them. I still enjoying my audiobook kick.
I read a lot of different books this week, and enjoyed most of them. Packing for Mars by Mary Roach was a lot of fun, and has inspired me to pick up her backlist. I’ve heard they’re great on audio, so that’s the format I’ll probably choose for those. The Confessions of Catherine de Medici by C.W. Gortner was also great. It was a fresh take on a vilified queen, and I enjoyed learning about her. Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner was enjoyable, but nothing remarkable, while The Good Daughters by Joyce Maynard was really breathtaking.
Well, that’s about it. Even though I’m traveling, I’ll still be checking email constantly and reading all comments, so I’ll still be around! Happy reading!
