Sunday Salon

Saturday, February 20, 2010

Well, despite my crazy busy schedule I'm trying to get back on track with my reading. In fact, I think I need to make some changes to my schedule; for instance, I've decided I need to take Saturdays off from meeting with clients because working every single day of the week is wearing me out fast! Of course, the next few weeks I'm going to have to work on Saturday because I have plans on Sunday, but at least I won't be doing work the whole weekend. But yeah, I need some time to rest (and read!)

Anyway, this week I finished reading The Accidental Bestseller by Wendy Wax, so I will have that review up soon. I checked out her website when I was done and saw she has a new book coming out March 2, 2010 called Magnolia Wednesdays. I think the name of the book and the cover are both so adorable. Hopefully the book is good too; I'm looking forward to reading it! I've decided I need to put New York on hold for now. It's not that it's a bad book. But it just takes so much of a commitment since it's so long and it's a multi-(multi-multi-etc.) generational novel. With the little bits of reading time I'm trying to squeeze in here and there, I just can't fit something like that in. So hopefully I can return to it soon. Hopefully before the New York Challenge is over!

So now I'm reading A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I've been wanting to read it forever so I asked for it for Christmas. My sister also has a copy and she's never read it so we're reading it together. Depending on how engaging this book is for me, I may or may not start another easy book as well -- maybe a cozy since I have my eye on a couple I want to read. But Brooklyn also fits in the New York Challenge, so yay! That is about it for this week!

I hope you love A Tree Grows in Brooklyn. I've read it three times now and love it to pieces.

Oh, I remember those days of working nonstop! I guess I still do, but it's stuff I want to do now.

Thanks for the heads-up on the new Wendy Wax book! I loved An Accidental Bestseller.

Amanda -- I remember your recent review.. hopefully I love it too!!

Laurel -- You know, some people enjoy working, but I am not one of those people LOL! Even if it's doing something I like doing. I guess part of it is though that I'm not very confident in my therapeutic skills yet. Hopefully that changes. =)

I totally know what you mean with the it's-not-a-bad-book-but-I-gotta-put-it-down issue. That happened to me recently with a book I was reading. I just had too many other review commitments, but I will definitely return to it. Enjoy A Tree Grows in Brooklyn!!
