The Sunday Salon

Sunday, November 29, 2009


Good morning! I don't have a whole lot to update today. I am sad today because it is the end of a long weekend and I have to go back to worrrkkk tomorrow. =( Well, technically I'm working today too, doing my counseling internship, but that's different.

I didn't read as much this Thanksgiving weekend as I thought I would. Or rather, I did read, but it took me longer to finish the book I was on than I anticipated. I finished reading The Help last night and definitely enjoyed it, thought it roused some passionate feelings in me about race, prejudice, ignorance, and hypocrisy. I'll review that later! Today I'm focusing on work but am reading The Hunger Games... finally, right?

Also, in the near future, you'll be seeing reviews of some therapy and psychological books. There are many of these (non-fiction) books I've been wanting to read for a while for various reasons and have yet to get around to them. But now that I'm actually doing therapy and have thought of a couple I think would be good to go over with clients, I'm realizing I should have started reading them earlier, lol! I think these books will help me grow both personally and professionally too. There's this one theorist one of my teachers raves about, and I just realized the other day that one of fiction books on my TBR is by this author. In fact, it's one I put on my Fall Into Reading Challenge to read (though I've hardly done that at all, haha). So, anyway, I thought that was interesting.

That's it though. Everyone have a great week!

Don't worry you are not the last person to read The Hunger Games; I still haven't picked it up - my local bookstore only has it in hardcover and I'm a paperback girl. :)

"The Help" evoked similar feelings in me and transported me back to that time...

I'm looking forward to your "therapy" reads.

Looking forward to reading your review on The Help.

I loved Hunger Games. I've had Catching Fire for awhile now, just haven't picked it up yet.

Michelle -- I'm about 2/3rds through... it's very different for sure!

Trisha -- That's how my sister is too, hehe. And actually this copy I borrowed from her is paperback. She got it at a scholastic book fair at the school she teaches at. They had it there in paperback!

Laurel -- I'm hoping to read some good ones! Any suggestions?

Melissa -- I need to get to writing it before I forget, lol! I've gotten lazy. I just bought Catching Fire the other day too, so hopefully I like this one.
