Welcome to Take Me Away!!
Hello! Thanks for stopping by Take Me Away, where I review books of a variety of genres. My favorite genres are literary and contemporary fiction, though I also enjoy some mystery/thrillers. I also enjoy sociological and psychological non-fiction. Check out the tabs across the top to navigate the site. All the reviews on this site are categorized by title (fiction or non-fiction) or by author. Check out the "About Jenny" section to learn a little more about me. Thanks again for stopping by, and feel free to leave a comment even if it's just to say hi! =)

Today's Sunday Salon from Take Me Away is coming to you from The Windy City! Yup, we have been vacationing in Chicago for a few days. Today's our last day, though, and we fly back tomorrow. =( Anyway, I've still managed to log in frequently and keep up with most of my sites! I've read a little too. On the plane ride here I finished reading My Sister's Voice. (I needed the escape since our pilot was playing "look what I can do" with the plane.... haha). The review for that will most likely be up tomorrow. I started The Postmistress but it hasn't quite grabbed my interest as much as I'd hoped it would. =( It's still good, though, so hopefully it will pick up for me.
My husband has been reading as much as he possibly can because our (Chicago) hotel room came with a book, The Jordan Rules, about Michael Jordan, of course. Came with the room meaning it was on the shelf of our mini desk area and it stays here... hence his reading as much as he can, lol. Jason's a huge basketball fan, so even though the book was published in 1993, he's finding it very interesting... it's all about the year that Jordan took the Bulls to the championship, so Jason is remembering things about that season as he reads. I love when my husband (and other family members, for that matter) get caught up in reading, lol.
Jason and I also made a quick stop yesterday at The Book Cellar in the Lincoln Square area of Chicago, which is an independent book store that also serves wine and beer. Unfortunately, we didn't stay for a drink as we had initially planned because all their tables and chairs were set up for their event that night (that started about 20 minutes after we got there) and we didn't want to stay for the event or get "stuck" because we were already there. I've also had to check out the local Barnes and Noble and Books-a-Million too, haha.
Anywho, don't forget I still have to giveaways running for The Ocean Between Us and Hannah's List.
This week I also posted reviews for The Forest of Hands and Teeth and My Fair Lazy and I loved both!
