The Sunday Salon – Pre-Thanksgiving Edition

tss Good morning Salon-ers!

I’m wrapping up a great reading week and looking forward to a week that is going to be slower on the reading and blogging front.  My parents arrived in town last night and I have one set of grandparents coming in today for a quick visit, until tomorrow, when the other set comes in.  I’m sure it is only a coincidence that this is Daniel’s first Thanksgiving and people are traveling up to see us.  I’m sure they’re really here for me, my husband, and my parents…

Maybe not.  Both of Daniel’s aunts will be here this week, too.  I’m lucky Daniel’s still nursing, because otherwise I might not see him at all this week!  My husband might just be out of luck.

Anyway, I did well with my reading this week, I finished five books, although one of them I’d been working on probably for the last 2-3 weeks, just reading bits here and there.  Here’s what I finished:

shelf discovery hate list Shiver now & then madness of queen maria

This coming week you can look forward to reviews of at least “Now & Then” (and a giveaway!) and “The Madness of Queen Maria”  I haven’t decided about Wednesday, I may just leave it at a Library Loot post with no review, but we’ll see.

In addition to getting a lot of reading done, this week was also busy on the blog.  For one thing, I posted a product review and (international!) giveaway for a very cool bookmark.  In addition, I also posted a Literary Road Trip that helped explain where I got my love of reading. a challenge called Blogger Unplugged, and the following book reviews:

As for my memes this week, I had a great book for my Tuesday Teaser and a whole bunch of great books in my Library Loot.

I had a good week, and I hope you did too!  Happy Thanksgiving week to my American readers!

Some of the books mentioned in this post were sent to me for review.  This information can be found in their individual review posts.

  • Looks like you had another great week. I read Hate List last week and reviewed it this week–great book!

  • You had a fabulous week! I am really looking forward to your Now and Then review.

  • Aw, enjoy Daniel’s first Thanksgiving – and all the relatives!

    Now and Then is on my TBR list. Did I see you’re also doing the readathon next weekend? Wish I could join but we’ll have a house-full through Sunday. Probably not much reading for me at all this week. It’s all good, though. Love having my family around.

  • Isn’t it funny how much your parents have changed already? I swear Vance’s grandparents aren’t the same people who raised me. Enjoy your family and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  • Another great reading week for you! I’m looking forward to your Madness of Queen Marie review. Enjoy this time with your family!

    I think I would like Madness of Queen Marie the most. What a busy week you had. I didn’t talk about my productivity, but I am very happy to be able to blog and read again. I had health setbacks this year, but the last couple of weeks have been awesome. I am feeling very grateful this Thanksgiving.
    Missed everyone…..Wisteria

  • Those were some great reads this week! I won Shelf Discovery and received it this week, and have had so much fun thumbing through it. Talk about a blast from the past! Have a wonderful Sunday with family and Thanksgiving. Take advantage of all that help!

  • You did have a productive week last week! Take it easy this week and enjoy your time with your family even if they are probably more interested in seeing Daniel!

  • Looks like another great reading week! I recently read Shiver, too. It seems to be popular book at the moment. It was pretty good!
