Sunday Salon/In My Mailbox

Sunday, April 11, 2010

It's Sunday again! I don't have a whole lot to say today. I'm tired. This week I posted my review for Between Friends as well as the interview with the author. I've finished a lot of books lately but have yet to write the reviews!! Need to get on that. Right now I'm reading The Lost Summer of Louisa May Alcott and hope to finish it soon. I couldn't participate in the 24 hour read-a-thon, but I tried to fit it in here and there. I participated in probably about 8 hours and finished one book. I found that when I first start reading, I read much slower than later. I was reading about 50 pages every 60 minutes at first, but once I was "in the zone" I found I read 100 pgs in 80 minutes. So thought that was interesting! Problem is I have such little spurts of time where I can read. If I had more time, my reading would increase exponentially, LOL.

So that's that. Here's my short In My Mailbox for this week:

Books Mentioned
My Fair Lazy by Jen Lancaster
Pretty in Plaid by Jen Lancaster
The Ocean Between Us by Susan Wiggs
Hannah's List by Debbie Macomber
Fables, Volume 2: Animal Farm

One book is better than none! I am the same. I pick up speed as i go along, especially if it's really good.

Have a great day!

My Fair Lady has the cutest cover!
Oooo Pretty in Plaid. I wonder what it's about.

I have never timed my reading. You've given me the inspiration to time myself at some point.

Is everyone but me reading My Fair Lazy? Hmm. I might have to get myself a copy of that! Hannah's List is on my wish list, I'm looking forward to that review.
